So I've been waiting for my pennywort bought off of fleabay but it hasnt shown up. Probably lost in the mail. So i've ordered some off another site to make sure I get some in.
I've added a few things to the tank while I'm waiting though. I bought some cabomba and added it to the right side as a background plant. I like how these look and wanted to mimic a bamboo forest in the back ground. I still have some of the pony's foot found in the backyard in the tank. As you can see they are beginning to melt. I have added a few brazillian pennywort that were shipped free from some shrimps I bought a while back there were only a couple of leaves but they've begun to spread out a bit. These guys are up against the rock.
I also bought a bunch of riccia and spent a couple hours meshing them to little rocks. I'll use these as a border to fence in the HC once they arrive. I have some homemade CO2 in there at the moment and highlight these things are pearling a ton.
Wow, this is stunning. I love your rocks, they have such great texture/shape and it all goes the same way. Just your right side could be an amazing scape for a tank 1/3 of the size. I can't wait to see how this progresses.
i think its pretty cool how we used the same tank, substrate, stones and yet ours are completely different! yours is gonna look amazing once everything fills in. definitally a lot more heavily planted then mine. looks like your plants just turned the corner and are showing some good growth now. (those riccia rocks!) keep up the good work!
i'll post an update of my tank later today in the 12 long thread.
Lucky for my my LFS had them in stock for 4.95 /LB. They are not like the ADA stones however. I've seen a youtube video that shows they can raise PH. There are some folks on here that sell the stones as well.
