Blackheart Awesome tank! I love the driftwood, too.

gene4christ Yep I was not expecting it to get that big either as you can tell . I have got to thin it and move it behind the petrified wood after I move it to the front a bit . That rock wood really looks nice when you can see it Well there are actually three different kinds of that type off Crypt in there but I do not remember what they are now. You can make out them out though . One is right in front of the tall center driftwood and to the right and them there is the taller Wendtii Green right beside it and then mixed in . farther to the right in the front corner there is another variety the stems are a little different and it is not quite as tall.

On a side note I put two Kooooly's of the red and black striped version in there over a year ago and when they hit the bottom I did not see them again until a month ago when I noticed one of them VERY BRIEFLY behind the driftwood. Do they know how to hide or what ?

mattjm20 Wow, is that Crypt Wendtii Green in the front? I have some coming in the mail and I didn't realize it got that big (never kept it before). Guess i'll have to re-think exactly where I plan to put it in my tank!

gene4christ I still have not moved the Cryps yet , and now they really have the Petrified Wood blocked from view LOL . Check out the Petrified Wood a few post above , I think it would look ok if moved to the front a bit with the Cryps Behind it . What do you guys think Leave it as is or move it ?

gene4christ I am thinking about moving the crypts on the right side to behind the petrified wood that you can't now see LOL and bring the petrified wood to the front just a bit . I think that will give a little more depth as well as showcase both the crypts and the petrified wood better. What do you guys think?

Ludwigia inclinata var. verticillata 'Cuba' was my favorite back ground plant as it grow fast and turned red the closer it got to the lights.
Hmmm. I could trim 30min from the morning and 60min from the evening to drop the time back a bit . But the algae has all but gone away already that should be the death of it then ! Are there any other thoughts along that line ? And still would like to know where I fit as for as low light or medium light .

Where did you get it?
Got most of it from a fish store that was going out of business proly 20 years ago now. But the one that looks like a limb, I picked up from the Wabash river, again a long time ago, and it still will not stay down by its self LOL . I have it screwed onto the other one just in front of it to hold it down. The driftwood that came from over the big pond is very dense and sinks .

Sometimes Harps has some of the good stuff . I got some of the small peaces that fill in the gaps from there .
