ikuzo took a pic of my outdoor 100 gallon when the sun is shining




moved the angelfish to my 100 gallon, now i can keep cardinals peacefully (not hunted) here in 40 gallon. the blue electric rams seems happy too. this tank's function mainly to keep anubias coffeefolia, added the wood and crinum for aestethics







there are also some cpd in there
should i add some pseudomugil paskai red neon in there?

But if you have the light in the middle of the tank(from front to back) and the Marsilea
is in the front, it may just be going in the direction of the light cause it can't see the shade in front of it.
yes the light is in the middle. as far as i know marsilea goes straight to one direction until it bump into something, but the start direction probably is random.

once i got a beautiful almost full carpet of this plant until something bad happened and it melted away just in a few days

ikuzo Raymond that is a really good observation, i havent noticed until i look at my picture again. i don't know if this is just a coincidence or not that if marsilea really grow looking for the shades.

i also have a small amount of this plant at the beginning and i always plant them in bright areas of the tank at first.

thanks for the compliment. nowadays i only kept low maintenance plants so i really don't have that much of species variation

I noticed some of the Marsilea is growing under shade. Is that only as long as it's connected to some that is in the light ? I have a very small piece given as an afterthough sort of by someone and it got two new clover leaves first. It only had two clover leaves when I got it. Since then till now it has 7 of the submerged leaves also from one runner and it seems to be going directly into the shade. Would have thought it would do just the opposite.

Because I'm lease locked to 10g or less I only have 2 10g and really don't "scape" anything. Just plant it where I think it won't crowd other plants. But in a 10g I'm
fast beginning to understand why they say keep down on the number of different types.
I believe it's at 14 now in this tank IF I leave off the regular and giant duckweed.
But your tanks all look amazing. Even the one that you say is not "scaped" looks that way. And you don't have 27 different kinds of plants in each.

ikuzo i got into a motorcycle accident awhile ago, i broke my right leg. it's been almost 2 month recovering from my broken tibia and fibula surgery.

well anyway i got bored and redo one of my tank. with help of course, so tell me what you think







it's a 10 gallon tank.
lighting is a 5 watt led bulb
filter is eheim 2213, kinda strong current for this tank size.
no co2 yet but i'm planning to add soon

filled with anubias nana petite mostly. they're from my currently treated 40 gallon tank which got lots of bba. i bleached the petite as you noticed the white strands of dying bba on them. i put some stem at the back temporarily to help early phase of this tank. some red cherry shrimp inside.

i'm undecided with the fish. what kinda of small fish do you think suit the strong current?

ikuzo pink beard algae!









well its bba after overdosing with carbon plus. kinda look pretty

Bump: did some trimming at my 100 gallon
crazy crypt usteriana leaves..
