Thanks!
The other was just to thin...I needed more for it.
I'm planning on using a pb co2 setup for a bit on this to help it fill out, then I'll take it off once its to where I want it. I'm also going to add more crypt parva in front of the crypt wendtii to help slope it, so your not seeing stems so much.

Thanks, I have though about it, but I plan on filling this with bright green crypts and I like the contrast of the dark wood with the green =]

I did think about maybe something right in front of the wood, something bright green, any suggestions?

I added co2 to this tank, bought the ultimate setup from nilocg.
I don't know anything about co2 but I plan on learning!
I figured out how to put it together...I followed the directions on how to do the co2 drop checker but I used the 4 dkh solution instead of water. Now I have it going at a little less than 1 bps...
I hope I'm on the right track...
I'll take pics later when it gets dark!

Some crypts have melted but not a lot, and algae is growing on the glass, this tank sits in front of a window and right now it light source is mostly sunlight.

How do you like the ultimate setup from nilocg? I've been considering purchasing one myself. Are you still running the co2 on this tank? Did it help with the parva? Sorry for all the questions.
