I'm using a dirt substrate with Eco-complete cap. Read through my thread and you can find more info. Good start!
Ahh, I'm still loving your tank. I just looked at this thread again, and I wanted to say that the light that came with the tank is not so bad. Here's my tank with the stock lighting and a bit of supplementing with a desk lamp. I'm surprised it grew in so well.

Thank you for the nice compliment. The half moon is def a challenge to scape. But if you do it right it can look fantastic. Tall plants look great in it.

tomfromstlouis That is a great looking tank frrok.

You could of course get the same look with a different val that does not grow as tall and your cronic rescaping syndrome would be solved.

You knew this. Carry on.

frrok Ludwigia 'red'

Here I a shot of the tank in my living room and house plants.

frrok Tank is recovering well. Ludwigia is redder in this tank than my high light tank with co2! Val's are already sending out new runners. Will have more plantlets soon.

Why should anyone be offended at all. Thank you for the compliment.

I liked the tank but I'm moving on to bigger and better soon.

Thank you! I really needed the encouragement. It's amazing...it's a completely different tank now. I also raised the height of the substrate on either side to try and create more depth. I will say my fish are a lot happier now that they have more swimming room. It makes me feel better. I will probably only keep this tank running up until about february or so and then a 120p will be going in its place. Planning on an NA setup with all new fish. Will most likely give the fish in this tank away. But first I'm hoping to get a few more pretty male endlers out if this batch. Well see.

frrok Spent the better part of this Sunday doing a semi-rescape of this tank. What a headache. I'm ready to completely tear it down... But I replanted all the Val's and the rotala and Bacopa. It looks like when I first set it up. A complete start over. Im not really happy with the way it turned but The fish seem happy they have more swimming room.
