awesome tanks! I like the rocks! Where did you order them? Are those the ADA ones? I cannot seem to find any small rocks that have the right texture

Yes, ryuoh stone. I ordered them from AFA in San Francisco, and ordered way more than I needed so I could have some options. Ask for pieces of a specific size, send a pic of the scape you want to achieve, and they try to accomodate.

Thanks man. Your Mini M build is very nice too, and looks like you burned through some serious cash as well.

Yeah, can't wait to see the iwagumi. I like the driftwood also but you can't beat the other one.

Thanks for the kind words...

The stargrass in the 'wood' tank is TRAGIC...it is growing sideways, and even past 90 degrees in some cases. Looks like a complete mess. I'm going to do some trimming of the naughty bits tonight, and hope to encourge some more vertical growth. Will post 1 week pics tomorrow.

Starting to see teeny bits of algae in both tanks too...the battle begins

Welcome to the aquasky. Lol I got so frustrated with my stems that I yanked them out and have set out to make and grow my own wabikusa in a spare tank and let my glosso carpet mini m till then.

I've been following your thread, TheGuy, so I hear you...i may have to borrow your window screen idea at some point.

Green Flash, how will I make them...grow vertical? There is SOME vertical growth. I'll leave that part be, cut out all the sideway bits, and hope for the best. Strangely the ludwidiga is growing pretty straight.

Cool project, I love the side by side tanks.

I think you should connect the tanks with a fish tunnel! I know it sounds crazy, but hear me out. No need to drill anything. Just build (or have someone build) an acrylic sky bridge for them. Once you fill it, it would stay filled like a siphon. I know I saw a thread of some who did this, but I can't seem to find it.

Yeah, I would absolutely connect them. Like this, but waaaay simpler:

Really just need and upside down "U" to connect them. I know it's kind of hokey, but it would be interesting. Since it would keep the water levels equal you could change the water for both tanks using a single python water changer or whatever you use.
