I probably did not feed them enough veggies. I never made a journal for it. Some days it looked cool, but most of the time its "meh". I tried to kind of go for an indoor pond. I don't know if we're going to keep it. Its looking a bit sad today. I either need to get my butt in gear and really put some effort into it, or sell it. My wife wanted the white background to keep things bright as this is in our kitchen, but I think black would look much better.

I have to say though, it looked pretty darn cool when it was 1/3 full. I might have to get rid of the goldies and do a paludarium with it.

PS: Suction cups suck. I only had enough wire to make hangers for 3 of my baskets.

xjasminex So my old guy started with symptoms of dropsy on sept 7th. Treatment is water changes every two days with dosing of metroplex and epsom salt with every water change. Orally dosing oxytetracyline daily. He hasnt really gotten any worse or better. Although he is acting normally and is still eating good. No other symptoms noted except the pineconing.

xjasminex Yea, those plants are all over!! He is just lately been actually swimming through them. I think the light has a lot to do with them being so awesome at growing. Plus i have an autodoser that doses a small dose of excel throughout the day. Plus i have the dirt substrate. I dont think ill have a dirt substrate in the 100g when ever i get to set that up. As you can see i have a lot of dirt and wood pieces that sifted up either by natural ways, due to current, snails or because of my boy. Im thinking i might do like a planter sorta thing.

Oh no!!!!
That is to bad, it definitely depends on the fish!
What were you feeding them, if you don't mind me asking?

Massive amount of plants....photo taken during tonights water change.

xjasminex I pull the not so good looking ones/ older leaves/ algae riddled ones out to help with space. Something always needs pulling because they grow so fast!

He also keeps digging up the sand in the middle of the tank and exposing clay and dirt....I think the circulation pump doesnt help either.
I have many rip plants that are out of control too. I just added purple waffle. I can go a whole week without changing the water. My fish tells me when its time to be changed, he gets moopy. However my nitrates always read 5-10ppms. Something that i have NEVER been able to accomplish before. =]
Nice with the nitrates! Hoping to do that with my tank. Purple waffle is a great hardy riparium plant, I've had mine for a few years and its decently big (not tall but bulky and wide-actually so heavy it falls over-I have to use a some ss mesh to prop it up because I don't want to cut it) and it will have lovely little white blooms for you in time. If you trim it just replant it and wait, it will wilt a little but bounce back in 1-2 weeks.
Do you pull plants out form in the tank to give more room or just trim off some leaves here and there?
