Great work! Especially since you're using the stock light the plants look awesome!

I bought a FugeRay bc my plants weren't growing.

It's been converted into a grow out tank :P I plan on getting rid of the huge driftwood and putting in some new stone I got so I can space the plants out more.

Wanted to space out the plants more so it was time to get rid of the wood.

Just water changed as well so the water is a little fuzzy

I'm so jealous you got unlimited amount of plants to re-scape lol

Aquatic plants are so expensive in my area.

I've got way too many :P
"Re-scape" for me mean move plants around so no one chokes the other out lol

They're all plants that I could see in my future tank so I've been growing them out (and given a lot away) while adding more.

Where are you at?

If you don't mind me asking, what are you using here in terms of lighting, dosing and CO2?
