also got rid of the huge co2 pipe thing on the power head and rounded out the inside of foam on the rena filter intake and put the ceramic inside it

Hey dude, I did not know the sunset hygro I gave you could be so red! You have lots of negative space to work with in your rescape, which is good. What did you do with the rest of your plants?

Also, I just left at home in NYC this weekend a whole bunch of black glossy stones that might be a good contrast to your gravel that you can maybe build up like bricks into a wall or something. If you want some, I'll bring them back to Philly next time I go home.

Also, do you have any more HC to spare? Just a little bit - some of the ones you gave me got a little rotten because I left them in the bag with non-new water for too long.

hey buddy i took out what i didnt want. i just picked up a new hygrophila. thats the green of the sunset with out the red /pink so vicious.

i dont think theres as much space as you see theres hc planted alond the whole front and glosso to the right of rock infront of the reineckii.

once the plants grow more im gonna have to space them out better wich will absorb that dead space.

all that hc i had in the bucket i put some fert in it and it melted it all so pissed.

soon though if my co2 starts working right i should have a ton of different things to hook u up with.

save me some rocks i think im gonna get a fluval shrimp cube thing
