    Sorry. Not something I have needed to do as I find all I have needed local shopping.

    Hi Rich,
    Have you had any luck buying plants from people on the forum? I'm looking for:
    Jungle Val
    Ludwigia Peruensis


    Appreciate any direction you could point me in.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Yes, very nice tank and he has a good handle on how to work the severum. I don't do too well on plant ID, though. Some would look like some form of hair grass? I wonder how he went about getting it that thick without being pulled. I find the little plants root so loose that even a small tug gets them out. Maybe he fully planted and go them all going before adding the fish?
    Quite a hill he has also. Wonder if that is all substrate or did he use something to elevate it and then possibly glue to the raised area? Lots of things he could teach me but not likely for me to get that into it. I'm more of a move, shoot and move on type guy. If it doesn't come easy and pretty quick, I lose interest.
    I have to admit that I will not be getting into competition with him for a long time. Like never!
    I like my fish and the plants do make them look much nicer but the idea of that kind of solid planting is just way out of my range, I'm afraid. Just not finding the motivation to work it that hard?

    Hello Rich,

    I ran into this today and figured someone with as much knowledge as yourself might appreciate it and also might be able to ID some of the plants?

    Is it just me (probably due to me admitted bias towards Green Heros serverus or does this guy have a pretty cool tank? I'd love to get some plants in my Severum tank as they like plants but are notorious grazers, so I might share this gentlemen's approach and simply provide ample vegetation in the tank?

    Cheers,

    Mike

    Hello Rich,

    If you have a moment, certainly no hurry, I have taken your advise and made some changes to my tank and wanted to see what you think? I bet a lot of people ask you questions due to your obvious knowledge and ability to communicate it?

    I have started another thread. I have been into aquariums for a while, but I haven't joined a forum in along time and I "just" started with planed aquariums, only a short while ago. Whole different world really, between planted and just fish. I like it because it's another challenge and I love plants anyway, so I get outdoor plants, but this aquascape stuff... is just too cool.

    So anyhow... here's my post about my currently CO2 solution and my effort to get some feedback on it. The more the better, good and bad, assuming of course you have the time. Thanks again.
