Finally was able to get a good picture of this tank using my phone instead of my regular camera. Here's how it looks today (ignore the floating cabomba, it escaped after the last trim/replant):



I changed a few things since the last photo. Added some s. repens, a little DHG belem, moved some things around, and took out the pennywort. I also switched to PPS-Pro instead of EI since my lights aren't very bright. All I was doing was wasting a ton of ferts with EI. I still need a midground plant to place behind the s. repens.

Thank you! I'm actually pretty proud of this tank as it stands now, especially considering I could barely keep anything alive not all that long ago.

Re: 135 gallon community

It's very pretty and healthy you have done a great job! Any plans for changes or just letting it grow in?

Thanks For now I'm just going to let it fill in. When I get tired of trimming the stems I might pull the ones out on the left side and just keep the shorter plants, sort of a mixed carpet. I'm also keeping my eye out for a few nice stones since I had to take all my other ones out.

Just make sure and test them first
