Nice growth, ming!

I particularly like your vals. Usually they send out long runners. Did you have to do a bit of replanting ?

What are those plants in the foreground? A bunch of small crypts?

For the italian vals, I basically made sure the runners pointed back inwards so they didn't spread across the whole tank. The runners usually keep going in 1 direction unless you turn it.
As for those foreground plants on the left, those are actually small java ferns that I pulled from my mother plant in my 10 gallon

great tank ming .... the only light that you have over it is one 55w pc ?.... do you use the hagen nutrafin co2 system with the plastic container and ladder in this tank ... what mix proportions of sugar yeast water do you use in it ?

your plants look so lush and green ....

very nice

Yes, there is only 1x55W PC bulb in this tank and no, The CO2 I have is only in my 10 gallon tank. I use flourish excel in this 29 gallon tank for carbon. Also dosing the regular things like NO3 10ppm and PO4 at about .3ppm, and dosing potassium at double the amount I dose NO3 and iron about 2-3ml/week. 12-14hr photosynthesis period

Picture above dated June 16. This is when I started the DIY CO2 as you can see on the background ladder.


Dated today June 28. Look at that huge background center improvement in a mere 12 days!

WOW

Seeing the growth in those last two pics might just force me to start running a co2 system.

Tank looks awesome.

That's a tough call. That plant looks great in there. It is shading the front-right corner though. Don't want to just hack it back?
