There are 2 types of people on this forum. Those that have algae, and those that lie and say they don't.

If you don't mind, I've got a random question about your Echino aflame (because I'm having trouble finding much info online about that specific cultivar), but how fast does it grow? I know it will get relatively large eventually like most amazon swords (unless I'm mistaken based on what I've read), but will it take a long time to get there? Or is it just as fast as any other Echinodorus?

Re: H4N "Planted Tank ROOM"

Well finally setted up the 10" cube.
Equipment isn't final, its just what I had around besides the light.
I used a par38 18watt led bulb in a clamp light dome fixture. Its hung about 2ft over it. And it help light up my work desk.




Plants so far:
Red root floaters
HC
Fissidens Geppi
Not sure on a background plant yet but was thinking threaded fern.

I also don't know what color to do the background...

Just wanted to chime in and admit to reading every...single...page of this 24-page thread.

I've had to clean up my drool several times, wipe away the tears of happiness and jealousy, and had to show the Punk (my minion) your pics and had to explain everything in the pics.

Equally as important as this thread filled of awesome is the fact that I will be making much and many future purchases from you to help fund this room of Amazing. I'm attempting to setup a 40B in the midst of moving across town, and I've had to pause setup because I need a light, plants, and hardscape.

Oh, and I have subscribed as well.
