20g *Needs better title*

Heyhey guys! So well my 29 gallon busted, so the next day I got a 20 gallon long! Ripped off the top rim and put all the stuff From the 29 gallon in and it's on it's way! I'm growing everything emmersed right now, so I can get a nice hc foreground from the start. Here's a picture of the progress thus far. I'll take some better Pictures tonight.

Well here'd be that update I talked about months ago.... heh heh.

Plants grew very well! As you can see:





BUUUUUUUT I decided I did not like the sticks or the limnophila aromatica. I felt as if the leaf size was going to throw off the scale of the whole scape so this is what I have now. I'm really looking forward to what the tank will look like fully grown in and submerged! I just clipped the plants and spread the cutting around in the areas left bare from the removal of the L. aromatica. So now it'll be another couple months before I flood it. :/ OH well! Here's it atm.

Nice start, I'd remove that excess water you have that is kind of puddling in the front as soon as you can, otherwise, it is a breeding ground for bad stuffs.

p.s., im also doing a dry start, click the link in my sig.

I thought someone would mention the water! I drained it a short while after the photos were taken.

Does anyone know about adding ferts to the misting water? I'm going to try adding a little bit to the next misting. !

I'm going to try to post weekly pics from now on so I (and you guys!) can observe the growth

Sorry it looks very bad. My screen on my camera broke so I just have to guess if the picture is good. This is right before I started filling! I should be done by tonight!

It's flooded! I PROMISE this time to post weekly! I really am happy about this though! And again these pictures were taken with a camera without a working screen! I bumped up the CO2 waaay past what would be acceptable with fish and added lots of ferts. Let's hope this turns out great!
