thanks guys!

Marko, the embers are nice, I've kept them many times in the past. They're very active and school decently. So far it seems like they usually just hang out in the front right of the tank where there's some nice open area for them. Occasionally they'll swim around the tank and it looks really awesome when they do. Nice color on them too. Not shy at all. I added them in at night and by morning they were swimming all around. They're going to stop schooling eventually though but oh well, maybe I'll add an apisto or something to the tank.

Hey Iwannagofast! Any updates on the tank? Just read through a bit of it...

Sorry if this was already asked, but how many lbs of rock is that? I'm trying to budget my tank stuff as I go, and I want to add some Ohko for the scape, just having a very hard time figuring how much I'll need. I'll probably be ordering from AFA up in your neck of the woods.

Thanks for sharing the tank man, it really is something to be proud of.

Thanks! Here are some new pics since you asked

elatine hydropiper is growing in nicely, should have a dense carpet in about 2-3 more weeks.


def. my favorite plant of all time now, ludwigia tornado


fissidens wasn't doing too well at first but has really bounced back


top view of a few of the stems I have here, that's ludwigia sp. red, ludwigia brevipe, and ludwigia atlantis (I have a sorta ludwigia obsession!) Unfortunately, I'll be removing the atlantis because it's just too big for this tank and scape.


And some FTS. My plan is to swap the positions of the ludwigia tornado and the rotala h'rai. I'll be adding some l. arcuata and replacing the atlantis with some l. senegalensis (similar leaf shape but smaller leaves)




To answer your question scbrooks87, I really don't know how much rock I have in here, I'm thinking maybe... 15-20lbs? Hard to say, ohko stone is a lot lighter than other stones, and it's a lot of smaller pieces fitted together. I bought them over like, 2 years time, a little here, a little there so I can't say for sure.

It's looking good!! I only wish the rocks didn't get lost in the plants as much because they are stunning!

Thanks! I'll probably have some ready in like 3 weeks. The roots are super dense on the hydropiper, almost 1.5 inches long. It isn't as small as I'd like though, def. smaller than glosso but a little bit bigger than HC.

Is it like a miniature Glosso? I would like to get some eventually, it seems awesome.

augh, I don't know what the heck is going on but this tank has really went to crap. I have a slight dusting of brown algae over most of the plants, all the hydropiper died, the HC on the rocks died, the stems aren't growing very quickly...

Might just tear it down and redo the whole thing with a new scape
