Never going to leave the couch. Just going to keep refreshing the browser. On another note there was a reference a few pages back to not keeping the thread going? or something like that. Care to explain?

Be Happy.

Thanks all for the compliments regarding Amazonas. It was a nice accomplishment, and it couldn't have been done without Devin's help.

Sorry that I have trailed off into the ether. I'm currently very busy with work and outside projects, and just haven't made much time to stay up to date on this thread. I'm trying to get it photo-ready for an opportunity this weekend, or at least a video of it. Have a nice foreground now, and though I'm waiting for some things to fill in from my last trim, I might as well grab a few pics soon.

Harsaphes, I think that I was simply alluding to the fact that the set up doesn't really "change" all that much from photo op to photo op. It is mostly a slow-growing system, and it really takes some time for anything "noticeable" to really happen. I am a little weary of posting consistent updates as many people may think "So.....what's different now from when you took the last set of photos? Why are you bugging us with miniscule updates?" Tank-fatigue is a real thing. :-) People get tired of looking at the same system looking pretty much the same all of the time, and I can't blame them. I think that fellow hobbyists want or need changes to a system to stay engaged in the thread, and I'm just not one to do major re-scapes every so often for the heck of it. I didn't set up the system to be that way....it was originally designed to peak after a lot of time, and so, I'm just going to stick with that. lol!

Will try to get some eye candy up over the next several days! Thanks all!

Crazydaz's Square 200G RIPARIUM Strikes Back! Updated w/NEW PICS 2/15/14

Here are some pictures that I was able to take yesterday, mainly of the top portion. I am waiting until this evening to take aquatic photos when there is less glare. Also working on a video, too! Bought myself a new camcorder, so I'll be messing around with that, too!

I think you've been downplaying the amount of growth you've had in the tank That carpet looks spectacular! Stunning as always, Don. Thanks for posting.

Thank you Wei. I had forgotten that I hadn't had a carpet in the last set of pics. Whoops! I guess that is a change! LOL

Hi Philip! Thank you, and yes I still do have a few stems of the Ammannia that I am currently re-growing from a trim. Not a very fast grower.

Downshift.....thanks!

Bob, it is! I can spend an hour pruning, have a mountain of scraps, and you probably wouldn't be able to tell much of a difference. Yet, it's not over-bearing....most everything in there is pretty slow-growing.

Tyrone.....pretty neat image! hahaha!!
