Thanks guys.

And, yup, everything has grown even more, especially the Java Fern. I kind of feel bad for the two Anubias nana as they are now slammed right up against the front of the tank.

I am really digging this scape, especially the ridiculous column of Anubias. Good work!

I like creepy things, vines included.

Thanks. If this tank had ~5 inches more in depth then I'd make an Anubias petite foreground. Still, maybe I'll move the two nana towards the middle/back and add petite in their place.

The tank is still going (and growing) strong. I'm quite proud of the little ecosystem that has formed within the tank as all I do is a 50% water change every ~6 months (probably closer to 8-10 months) and that sums up the maintenance besides water top offs and daily feedings. No algae concerns, plants grow fine, and everything looks healthy.

I will hopefully have some nice pictures posted in about a week.

Awesome. I'd love to see more pictures after another year's worth of growth!

Hi CL.

The Anubias has pretty much assimilated the driftwood (We are Anubias. Resistance is futile?). A year from now, the tank will be one giant Anubias plant.

Still waiting on the DLSR. In the meantime, here are a couple shots of a snail and his RCS buddy (the RCS is definitely not happy about the Ramshorn hogging the food):



I love my Ramshorns. Their body color really pops and it is hard to capture, but the first shot is fairly close. It is like they are luminescent.

Sorry for the dark picture.

I think I need to go sell some of these Anubias nana petites but I've grown so attached to them that I'm not sure that I can do it. I suppose I have to though, since they have kind of taken over the whole scape.

Thanks Whiskey.

I stopped dosing Excel in 2011 or 2012.
