So I moved the plants around and I think this is where I will keep everything for a couple months while everything grows out. I am still waiting on my Alternanthera Reineckii 'mini' but it should be here this week. I plan on putting it in the center where the empty spot is.

I should also get some amano's and oto's in the tank this week and then the local chapter is having their fish auction on March 23rd and I hope to pick up a some tank mates then depending on whats available.

Day 39

Water Parameters (3/12/13)
pH-6.35
Temperature-77F
TDS-342ppm
Alkalinity-70ppm/4 degrees
Hardness-155ppm/8.7 degrees
CO2-50 ppm (falls almost perfect on this chart)
O2-6.8 ppm

I decided to drop the temperature to 73.5-74F on the controller. I hope to increase the oxygen level 1-2ppm.

Just realized I was making a stupid mistake with oxygen levels. I've been adding excess Excel since I have no fish/shrimp to take care of algae, etc. My daily routine was adding ferts, excel and then I took measurements. If you didn't know if you put excess excel in it will decrease the oxygen levels.

So I am going to stop dosing Excel and remeasure then the oxygen levels this weekend.

Well they were all sold to me as LudwigiaInclinata Cuba and Rotala Indica 'True' is to the right. I'm not a plant expert but if you look at the full tank picture (below) I have 2 stems slightly different in the middle so they might be pantanal. I like the color on them

I think the leaves are different because that stem up rooted a couple days ago and was floating at the top of the tank for 12-24hrs so it was exposed to air.

I really like your colors. When mine is all done I'd like to have a similar range.

TPT says I'm an algae grower... I'd like to think of myself as one hell of a Cabomba farmer.

Wow, that looks nothing like what I have labeled mini. Your leaves are very large compared to mine!
