Hassler's 15G Journal.. 56K

Hey all,
After lurking on the boards for a while I decided to register and try to contribute. Im giving this a shot, to see how big of a wet green thumb I have Ill be moving in 4 months or so, and would hate to have something happen to a beautifully filled in tank. Besides, Ive got 2x 55's waiting to be setup when I move!

Ive got a 15G w/ 2x 15w GroLux bulbs.
2L DIY CO2 -> airstone -> tupperware bubble collector

I can grow cabomba like no other... it doesnt look like it now, I just did a massive replanting and pruning.

The plants:
Cabomba
Hornwort
Banana Plant
Green + White Acorus?
A Val?
and 3 other mystery plants.

Current inhabitants are a Blue Ram and an Oto Cat.
Also dealing with Cyano and hair...

Nice. I like that driftwood. Your wisteria looks healthy. I can not wait to see this tank when in regrows and fills in a bit before the move. I am however wondering if the acorus is a bog plant or not. I am thinking it may be but I could be wrong. Does anyone know? I think it is not fully aquatic.

My goal is a sea of green.

I had no luck with my Acorus under ideal conditions :-( It just melted away. Keep an eye on it if you can.

Other than that it's a great start. Fill-in should start to happen soon :-)

You are right... the Acorus doesnt do so well fully submerged from all that Ive read. Which would explain why its not doing so well Thanks for the compliments.

Thanks! After buying a plant encyclopedia, I looked, and it is indeed an onion plant. The Acorus will be coming out shortly due to the fact it keeps dying... At this point, I dont care if my tank is ulgy or whatnot... I just want to try my hand at different plant requirements and see if I can get em to grow! minus algae, fish/plant loss.
