For some reason, my E. tenellus won't grow any lower than about 9" which is bizzare. The guy who gave me the chain swords to begin with had them in a 4 ft. tall tank lit by a few MH bulbs and his were only 2" tall at most. The S. repens will be a nice carpet eventually.

I have a 20H as an emergency tank in my basement that I use for treating sick fish. Yes, having a growout tank has helped me quite a bit. I started with 4 stems of S. repens and now I have about 50.

Coming along nicely, Cap MFK!! Love the wood!!
Driftwood is currently sitting on my kitchen table. I sprayed it with bleach water, then soaked it in the bathtub and scrubbed off any BBA. I haven't decided, but I might sell it.

Can't wait to see your 10g at the tropical fish show this spring when it's really lush and beautiful.
Thanks, I will definitely be bugging you for plants once I have enough stems to trade.

Capsaicin_MFK The 10 gallon was used to create a writeup on how to properly do the dry start method.

Capsaicin_MFK I removed the driftwood to start the 100 gallon tank on the path of going Dutch.

Capsaicin_MFK I am preparing the 10g to be a field of Staurogyne repens just as I did with HC before.

10g half HC/half S. repens

Capsaicin_MFK October update: I killed 95% of my moss trying to treat BBA with Excel, but it is growing back. I also trimmed most of the sword leaves away to allow the E. tenellus to spread without being shaded. I got Giesemann bulbs for the light fixture and they put out way more intense light than what I was previously using (plants are pearling).

Tank before major trim with old bulbs


Tank after trim with Giesemann bulbs

Capsaicin_MFK September update: 100g rescaped and nuked any BGA on driftwood with H2O2. The 10g is now in DSM with S. repens and HC.

I love what you did with that 10g HC carpet. I'm currently trying to do the same things in a biocube. Do you have any pointers for me?
I shop where the prices suite me, which is usually an online source. If you need anything specific, it doesn't hurt to research before buying.

By the way what are the dimensions of the 100g? Very COOL looking tank!

Thanks! The tank is 48"L x 24"W x 20"H
