No, I need to get some, I know! Yeah, the PFR are really nice but I'm getting ready to sell some and get some fish too.
I forgot patience... patience is definitely another requirement!! I so want my lush hc, like yesterday!
I like the blyxa and rotala in your tank. It gives a nice variety of textures.
What is your dosing regime and photoperiod, if you don't mind me asking?
