Well if you ever make your way to SF you should check out Oceans Aquarium and Aqua forest if your looking for plants. Where do you go in the south bay?
I've never really ventured for aquarium stores in that area.
Rough undate pics off a friends cell phone.
I haven't really touched anything and just let things grow the way they want to. I just thin out sections when they get to out of control. No co2 or ferts for more then a year now i think.
Just thinned it out.... still need to trim down the pearlweed. Kinda messy but I'm gonna work on it when i have some free time next month.
