75g - its a jungle in there.

I let my tank grow and grow the first month of class.
Finally I had to get things back into order.

New Scape


Not sure where to go from here. a few crypts, and a moss
would round things out nicely.

Ditto! I love your aquascape. Right now, mine is very much a typcial "fish tank" I'm slowly replacing the plastic plants and cheesy decorations that we don't care for, I hope it ends up and beautiful as yours when we are done.

Good Job!

Decided to re-scape, and add a few species of plant to the line-up.
I will have to re-organize some once new varieties grow out some.
Also not 100% on the new woodwork.

Added - C. Furcata, C. Caroliniana, C. pulcherrima, Glechoma hederacea, L. Peruensis, Glossostigma elatinoides.

Yes, Tiger Barbs. Full of energy, and easy to keep. I have 8 albinos and 8 regular. plus a common pleco to complete the stocklist. This tank is all about the plants. All the pretty fish are in my 125g South American Community Tank, minus my mated discus pair.

I have been continuing my slow growth regiment. Daily Dose nutrients every other day. Daily - glutaraldehyde (45ml). Dosing potassium and iron daily to maintain PPMs.

Glechoma hederacea is starting to spread. Definitely producible in submerged form. Peruensis is settling in. Still trying to push the hygrophila corymbosa to a deeper red color.

6Bulb HOT5 Rack @ 17.5 inches from substrate.
