The Mini Pellia was planted, dj
, during this tank's dry-start. I simply laid a piece on the rock when the tank was empty, kept it semi moist for three months, and it took off after I filled the tank. In person, it looks really, really cool the way it's growing flat on the rock's top. I'd say that the MP in this build is the prettiest I've ever been able to grow MP. (Unfortunately, due to the limited color-correction options available to me with my ghetto camera, I cannot get a good shot of it.)
Source is doing well. I'm pretty happy with it.
The right-hand side of the tank is growing in exactly as I intended. It's delicately lush, full, and lightly-green. The left is, in true fern fashion, growing slow as hell. I'm reluctant to add more ferns to jump-start the look I'm going for as I want to maintain a balance of right and left plant masses and if I add more ferns, it would throw off the balance once everything grows in. So, I'm forced to wait for the ferns.
The Slow Pokes & Co.
I've got about four RCSs in here. I think they're all females, though, 'cause none are having babies.
I want only a single thread of red on the right-hand side. It all hinges on this guy growing in strong and bright. Come on little guy!
Other than that, things are going well here. Weather's turned nice and that means the CBR will be ridden frequently and fast. Lost
is back in full swing and that's awesome. Mass Effect 2
is off the charts good. And Final Fantasy XIII
is right around the corner.
It's a very, very good time to be Ugly Genius.
