I've had a couple questions about some plants so made this diagram from my last full tank shot.

Thanks for posting this - I've been following your thread for some time now and it's an inspiration for my own 125G in progress: 125G Planted Freshwater build

Keep the updates rolling!

That's awesome that I could inspire you!

I plan on doing a trim this weekend if I get time and I'll post some new pictures. I have to paint the new nursery first and do some other things around the house that take priority though.

I raised the temperature back to 78F and the fish seem happier and more active.

I also reduced the CO2 slightly because some of the oto's weren't happy. It's weird some seemed perfectly normal and some were hanging out at the top of the tank on the wood. I'm still trying to dial it but I'm around 6.7-6.8 pH at the moment which would put be around 25-30 ppm.

Well I went crazy......I took out all the rocks and moved a bunch of plants around and chopped pretty much everything. I'll get a picture Sunday or Monday (Wife took the camera out of town).

I'll see if I can get one tonight but she won't be home until the earliest 8pm. Then I have to unpack her car and Game of Thrones is on.

I like the the new layout but want to get rid of the Blyxa for a couple plants I listed in the WTB forum.

Ha, the lobelia is what I least like about the new scape. I think it either needs to be 1-2 plants rows smaller or 1-2 plant rows longer (leaning towards longer and moving the amania seng back a touch). I love the actual plant and how it grows though.

I'm trying to get a couple new plants and my tentative plan is to remove the Blyxa and move the Lobelia a bit when this happens...if I can ever find them
