Congrats on the future HC Cuba carpet, you're getting the same growth as I did.



Remember to up the lights when you see further growth.

Lowering the light may be a problem... Whatever, I'll solve it!

You're supposed to increase the light when you see further growth like this? Is it to make it more compact?

Ill probably make two bars on the new stand to hang my light from. That seems like the easiest fix.

I think as long as the plant is hugging the substrate, you'll be fine. Maybe it's just the water up north here.

We have a saying about tap water where I'm from -

"If it's brown, drink it down. If it's black, send it back."

That's horrible water! How do you even keep tanks in that water?!

Bit of brown algae. Nothing a bit of Excel can't fix, right?

I really hate my classmates. They are always disliking my videos and teasing me at school about them. I don't understand why they don't realize that this is an expensive hobby and a lot of the money I use to buy plants and such is coming from profits off YouTube. They're always like, "Your fish tank videos are so lame, get a life!" and it's so annoying that they are stomping on my pride, my love, and my joy just to make me feel bad to no other result. Whatever, at least I'm making my stand tomorrow and yesterday I went here:

HS lasts for another 4 years tho...
But I'm very excited though because I'm headed up to the hardware store early in the morning so I can pick up the lumber for the stand. It's gonna be pretty fancy!
Also congrats to my dad on completing his half marathon!

Very nice of your dad to help you build one. What colour did you have in mind for the stand? Are you going to use hangers for the light?

I'm probably gonna just put a sealant over the wood. I like how the wood's pattern goes in different directions. I plan on a light hanger, but I'm not sure if it'll happen. I hope so

So far the total cost for this project is $58.00 so I'm well under my budget cap.
