I want to see where this one goes . You have some very hard-to-find plants in your tank, and those cardinals are stunning considering they were new - it takes me a couple months to get the ones from my LFS looking like that. Must be a nice store you have nearby

Yeah, one of my friends told me about it. I would have never thought of it, if he had not told me.

Thanks for the complement. One of the LFS here has very nice fish. He acclimates them before he sells them. Some plants are hard to find, I think I may be the only one in the US to have some (and a few people that ordered them with me). The two that come to mind is Hygrophila Pantanal, and hygrophila needle leaf red. I'll be posting more pictures comming up.

I doubt that they are actual ADA tanks, is there any way that you can check on that?

You better get rid of that plant in the back left of the tank. I had one once and it grew 6 inches in one day. It grows way too fast.

-20 gallon high, 65 watt Coralife Freshwater, Filstar XP1, Pressurized CO2, 77-79 degrees Fahrenheit, ADA Aquasoil + Powersand, 1 neons, 2 otos, uncountable number of chery shrimp, EI dosing method, 40% water change every week.

Its hottonia palustris. It has not been growing very fast. You might be talking about something else. Maybe wisteria or watersprite.

Powersand has some kind of fertilizer in it. Its not really necessary. But since this was my first ada set up I wanted to try it.

Looking great, like a spring garden! What is the red plant (looks like a Ludwegia or rotalla) on the back right above the lotus? If you get a little Hydor inline that would be nice. Do you have to use RO water there in S.F.? Looks like you said "bye" to the cuba...





Three Tanks...Eheim 2128 & XP3-90G, Eheim 2128-65G, Eheim 2232-25G.... Tek 4x54 watt T5-90G, Aqualight 96watt PC 65G low tech, 65 watt Aqualight-25G.... Hydors-90G & 65G ... Flourite in 90, 65, & 25 Gallons, .... Auto Water Change/Auto dosing on 90 & 65 gallon..... AGA member......

That is ludwigia sp guinea. No RO water. Plain tap. The water is pretty soft out of the tap, and the aquasoil helps a lot too. The cuba was way to much trouble it was seriously doubling by the day (well maybe every few days).
