Looks great, just wait until the HC grows in, then it'll look amazing!

Ok - ive done some stuff since last time...

I got the macros, in form of Tropicas new Aquacare Nutrition Liquid +. I got four Hyphessobrycon amandae (Amber tetra). I got 10 Red Cherry shrimps, and a new plant - less talkin more photos:

Full shot:

The "cuba is growing good right there... the front is lacking some...


After introducing Aquacare... The Rotala Rotundifolia got serious:


The new plant Rotala sp. ''Nanjenshan''


Do i have enough CO2?:


The Microsorum pteropus 'Windeløv' is not growing that good - but I love it:


Im still waiting for the HC to grow in... Hopefully it will soon.

Great pearling effect you have got there. All the best with the HC. Do keep us updated.

I really envy my fishes and plants,they seem to be getting so much more attention than me. Shouldn't i start pampering myself a little more?

well - the tank is down.

I had way too many cherries, and since they had no enemies or hazards - they took over the tank. I had like 200 cherries in that tank, and the filter/waterchanges couldent keep up with the pooping. So it ended in a staghorn hell. It was impossible to get them out
I made another lamp for a 14gal tank, with 55W - same design as the nano.
I introduced the cherries for a pair of Mikrogeophagus ramirezi, and they got them down, until they died of parasites when I was away on vacation.

Heres a shot of the new tank. The lamp is lifted to cool the tank a little. The root from the nano is on the left, and the rotalas is in the back. I got some Ludwigia repens (on the left) and some Eusteralis stellata for free.



I bought some more Hyphessobrycon amandae, so I now have 14. I bought 10 Amano shrimps to keep the cherries down.



Another front shot:



I like the lotus - but i needs a lot of cutting, to keep the big leafs from shading all other plants.



Heres one of the "old" tetras - its from the same shipment as the others, it has just been with me for 2 month instead of a LFS tank. See the diffence!



Heres another of the old ones in front of the Rotala sp. ''Nanjenshan''



Heres the HC from the nano - I just planted it a few days ago. It has been in a jar with water for over a month, so i hope it wont melt down. I had 3 sheets og A4 paper covered with HC - I could have planted the hole tank.



Heres the HC after i planted it. Behind the HC is some Pogostemon Helferi i got almost for free, since the plants way melted away.

I'll be looking forward to shots of your tank as it progresses. As for now,it looks really great and i am confident to say that if all things go as the way you had planned it,it would look marvelous.

Too bad about the nano! I've been an avid follower of your progress with it...

But, the new tank looks great, too!
Good luck with it!

Oh, as you know, the Echinodorus 'Rosé' on the right will grow out of the tank in no time... Any plans for its replacement?

Y0uH0 -> The tank wont stay for long, since i won a 66gal with all the stuff: http://akvariesiden.dk/konkurrence/effectline.jpg.
So ill be borrowing some stuff from the 14gal.
But ill hope to convert the 14 into a slick Iwagumi-design with HC and the tetras and som shrimps

Daniel*Swords -> The Echinodorus 'Rosé' is already gone, I gave it away after i planted the HC. Im letting the Eusteralis stellata (Behind the Echinodorus 'Rosé') fill some more. Maybe ill move the lotus a little to the right.

Guillermo -> im pretty sad too - but another problem this summer was that the condensed water ran down from the lamp into my table, and made the wood black and swollen.

Hey AP, I put my new nano over an old table to test for leaks and running the condensed water from the top glass, and it was a blessing, now that I figured out how to controll it I will build the stand.

Cheers.

Oh,it's gonna be a pity that the 14gal would be down real soon,was hoping to see it's progress. But then again,i'd be looking forward to your 66gal,a larger tank will mean that there is more room for your creativity to maximise itself. I would also be looking forward to the Iwagumi design that you have planned out for your 14gal.=)

Well - one thing at a time. First i need money for that pressurized CO2 system I want for the 66 - In that time i hope for the 14 gal to stay somewhat untouched and grow a bit...

I guess i wont take it down for 2-3 month...
