it looks like there has been a few runners but nothing overly amazing yet with the DHG...

I put some glosso in a 5G bedroom tank and threw a few stems into the big tank for fun... i'm curious to see how it grows (the 5 ish stems in the corner) compared to the DHG

Weird, I recently picked up some glosso too. The DHG is so slow, I think I might got the japanese version, it bends at the side for me.

It's called Dwarf Hairgrass Belem, and it's a smaller version with leaves that bend downwards. The growth is slower than normal DHG and I believe there is another version of DHG too.

Confused?

I am.

I have seen that in a display tank in van and it looked awesome. I will keep an eye out for it.

Seriously impressive. I love your driftwood, excellent layout! Great flow to the tank and it is filling in nicely! Love the DIY lights. I plan to make a lower shelf on my stand for another tank and access window to the timers so I want to do something very similar. Very inspiring! Thanks for taking the time to share.

Not bad for 47 days in.

I also made a quick under water video for fun...Kinda neat to see a fish-eye view.

And to polish it off I finally got my tube holder (much nicer than a binder clip!)



The tank has really started to fill in! it looks pretty cool under the led night lights so i decided to snap a pic.

So the system may work to well as just about everything in the tank grows like a weed.
The high grow (sunset and other) needs constant pruning.. The amazon swords are massive and taking over the left hand side (theres even runnuers with lots of mini swords popping up!) I give the tank a good pruning ever 2 weeks ish and have tons of plants if anyone in the area ever needs any!

The Lilly pads are taking over the right hand side and probably need a good thinning. The only thing not going nuts is the DHG.. any ideas why?

An update is far over due! Not the best pics but i snapped a few for the sake of an update.

A while back i added a dozen or so more baby neons and a blue eye long fin bristle nose pelco. Last week I added about 20 ammano shrimp and 2 pea puffers!

Thank is growing like crazy as always. Needs a trim every other week. Only real issue is i have been battling some minor BBA. I trim the infected leaves and tried a little peroxide spot treatment.
also raised the light, lowered the photo period and lowered my fert dosing a bit. so we will see how it goes.
