I've no idea how long for the Fissidens to latch on... mine is still floating in a little tub and still not tied to anything. It was all growing in this big floating mass in my 46gal before I finally sorted that tank out... lol

Why'd you switch out from mineralized soil to this substrate, BTW?
thanks! the vesuvius must love the tank.. it just started taking off a few weeks back, finally putting out runners since last year when I changed the scape. I still have topsoil.. i just have clay loam instead of the regular clay. I have the regular clay in there too, but just a small amount. I got the clay loam from Tom Barr.

What is the main foreground carpet plant? I'm guessing its a Marsilea sp. because the lighting in the tank doesn't look too high. Am I right?

picture of my tank as of this morning. glosso looks patchy because of recent trims.

tank has been doing great, with minimal dosing. I do a 50% water change once a month and that is about it! I lost some of my congo's a few months back but am waiting on rmc to get the cardinals in to pack this baby full!

yes it is... I actually have trimmed it so many times that I planted it all along the sides and back with the other stems out in front of it. can't tell now until it grows out!

This tank is absolutely stunning! I saw it in the Swap n Shop and the sight of it nearly compelled me to purchase a ton of plants I don't have room for.

Every time I see your tank, I want a 75 gallon more and more. Beautiful as always.
