calebkraft This tank no longer exists. It became a beautiful overgrown mess (just the way I like 'em) and then finally got sacrificed for a bigger one.

That will be cool if it does.

cableguy69846 Looks good man. I can see the next wave in fish keeping. Tubs with grow lights. Lol.

What is the creeping plant on the left, and the moss on the rock on the right?

calebkraft My light finally arrived! UPS lost my first one so Amazon sent me another.

Again, total ripoff of Xenxe's. Hope I didn't completely kill that bamboo by cutting it off below the leaves. From what I gathered, the stuff is almost invincible and will sprout if you diced it and buried it.

Many more plants coming soon!

calebkraft Flooded because I'm impatient. Got some HC dying off in the middle area and healthy growth around the edges. Added some "cardinal plant", some microsword, and some duckweed and some other plant I pulled from a local stream. I'm still waiting for my 4 foot t5 to arrive so I can ditch this hood and plant the bamboo in the back.

Dropped in a giant carpet of moss of some kind too, not sure if that'll take everything over or not. Gotta research! I also found clumps that look like riccia on steroids. They're super thick and rough, but the shape is the same.

calebkraft It has definitely fluffed up a little. The roots still aren't deep enough though. The lowest spot, where I planted the DHG lifted when I added a little more water last week.

crowconor that looks awesome, i have had no luck with HC. That is a huge change from the first picture

calebkraft Pictures as promised. Nothing amazing here.

I am tempted to flood just so I can keep it warmer though. My house keeps dropping to the mid 60s at night.

calebkraft I'll snap another pic tonight, though it doesn't look much different(twice as much light though). Still waiting for that HC (dwarf baby tears) to put down solid roots. I did plant some dwarf hairgrass along the edge of the "creek" looking thing though.

I was inspired by Xenxe's 20long one and ordered that same light today. I think I'll do a few "lucky bamboo" shoots in that top back corner extending out of the tank. Trying to come up with something nice to do for that boring creek bed area. I'm sure I'll come up with something.

gatorsmashed I just wanted to say I really like the look of this tank! Very unique and beautiful, great job please keep us up to date with pictures and stuff as it progresses.

cableguy69846 As long as it is humid enough, you should be good. And that looks like it took a lot of patience. Looks great though.

HC planted. I could have gotten by with half this much, but I don't really have another tank to use it in right now. Hopefully I can keep it alive. One of my bulbs was busted, so I have to go buy another tomorrow. That's why the right side looks so dark.
02-07-2012 12:30 AM
cableguy69846 That is a lot of HC man.

calebkraft Well they finally arrived today after bouncing around the postal service for a week.

Looks like I bought more than enough... I guess I'm basically just laying down a carpet!
