Hmmm some co2 issues and A mini cycle because by power strip for my canister blew and I didn't realize for about 2 days that my canister wasn't running since I have been so busy, so I am basically left with about 3 fish and a mass of ramshorn snails... but everything is still keeping steady growth for the most part and no algae issues at the moment so I guess it could be worse but I'll try and throw up some updated pictures tonight when I get home since I've been slacking.

HybridHerp I would trim the stems back now, try and encourage more compact growth and all
really like how your tank is coming out so far, can you post a pic of how you are doing your CO2?

Mr.Desert_scape Luckily my bold came back really nice after I cut off all the stemmy parts and leafs with holes and actually made it through that ordeal...

Mr.Desert_scape Thanks a lot! It is coming in really nicely, I'm impressed. That Rotundifolia You gave me really fills out that side of the tank and looks really nice. I just need a bit of color in there now!

skywhitney Looks great!! Everything is filling in really nice and thick. :-)

Mr.Desert_scape Been a couple weeks since i've done a picture update. Everything is coming in really well. Pictures are from the past 3 weeks in order.

skywhitney the R. Rotundifolia will turn orangish/redish/pink under high light. I'm working on getting some of my new stems grown so that i can start distributing some of those to people locally so i'll let you know. They have nice bright reds and oranges so far.
06-01-2012 03:47 PM
Mr.Desert_scape Yeah it came out way better than before. I can't wait for it all to fill in now! I just want to get some reds going in there now. Yeah I think that'll look awesome over the Dw also, I planted some behind it too so that should fill in nicely around it.

Looks great man! That tank is gonna be a jungle once all those Water Sprite start growing :-). The Rotundifolia looks good on the side, it will grow and curve at the top which would look really nice over the DW IMO.

skywhitney I think a nice bunch of Rotala would look good in there

Mr.Desert_scape Here is a weekly Picture update. =) plants are coming along nice but I need to break the tank down and move it this week so we'll see what happens. Thinking about moving some plants around.

Any opinions appreciated.
