Hilde Selling any of the Trident Ferns? Also got some Rotala sp. 'Nanjenshan could trade for. It is growing crazy in my tank 20G long tank with medium high. light. Would grow more straight in your tank.

Loving the MM I got from you. While out of town for a week the lights were off. It survived though.

ChadRamsey I just did a HUGE trim. Thinned out about 50% of the trident ferns and about 75% of the MM

Love the ferns. Hope to catch them the next time you are selling them. Have never seen them before. I wonder if they could be grown without injecting Co2.

thx Hilde It was very nice to meet you the other day.

I do have ferns growing in tanks that do not have co2. They grow fine, just supper slow.

Btw, love the scpae

first off, thank you.

If you look at the first post on the first page you'll get an idea of how it started.

Id say I tied 10, MAYBE 12, to the DW and never added anymore.

The powerhead is in the back righthand corner and flows along the back of the tank from right to left. TONS of flow.



thank you



very kind words. I was looking for something a little different what i planned this scape.



Thanks. They are ok. I lost 2 a few weeks back and am still puzzled over what was the cause. Im going to pick up a few more, hopefully.



thx, ill check your out.



thank you for the very kind words.

I do use co2. I use a homemade super sized Rex style defuser.

i am currently using the one on the right.

Any up dates of this bad larry of a tank?

Looks great!! I actually like the longer leaf look on the ferns, do you have a lot of flow in that area to make the leaves move?

That would be the same film(not a technically correct term) which causes a water drop to hang onto anything and when you overfill a glass for the top to be rounded.
Love that scape and especially the Cypress.
thank you

I hope you can find a friend with a good camera so you can get some glamour shots. I know the pictures you've posted don't give your tank the justice it deserves!
thank you for the very kind words.

I do use co2. I use a homemade super sized Rex style reactor.
