The plants are growing well, time for a trimming again!
Went to visit a local planted tank fellow. His tanks are awesome! So many beautiful tanks, so many beautiful plants! I added the three different kinds of free plants he gave me. At the front left corner next to the red plant you can see a kind of green crypt, 2 stems of "Christmas tree looking thing". Also at the center behind the wood you can see the "stem with long, narrow leaves that will turn brown under water"... Of cause I can't remember a single plant name as usual
The most recent rescape looks fantastic! The bushy overgrown look was nice, but you certainly achieved your goal showing off the madagascar.
Thanks A.D.D.i.c.t.! yeah finally the Madagascar Lance has space to grow. I used to just bury it in the back behind everything.
Beautiful tank and that driftwood is amazing. What are you using for Co2
I am using an Ebay DIY co2 set "Pro DIY CO2 system with pressure guage and check value D301". Highly recommend it. Instead of yeast and sugar this system use Citric acid, vinegar and baking soda. The setup is easy and it is less messy compare to the yeast/sugar combo. One mix can last up to 4-5 weeks for 2-3 bps.
That red plant looks very red. I have not been very lucky with getting red colors in plants. Maybe I should try that one and see what happens. What is its name so that I can try to find it?
The tall one is indeed Ludwigia sp Red. And I forgot the name of the shorter one in front. I just trimmed the tank and have a little bit of everything flowing in my shrimp racks. If you want to try it out you are welcome to come pick it up, since you are in Miami too.
