This is a BEAUTIFUL TANK TOO!!!! I really don't know which one I like more! I think I will like the new layout even better after it grows in more!!!
VERY GOOD JOB on BOTH SCAPES!!!

Thanks drew! some of the males are starting to bump for rank and try to get the girls attention. almost time to split them up.

Love the Angels! It looks like Ya have 8 in there in the last pic! SWEET!!!! I have 5 in my 55g, but 2 have paired off, and now rule the tank! Love the tall stump too! I think the plant selection you have gone with it very nice!
Keep up the good work!
P.S. Great lookin Dogs too!!! I see 1 of them likes to shred up paper! 1 of our 7 Mini Dachshunds LOVES to do the same thing!

Haha I did keep them all... For now
It only took me three years to start getting it right

Looks good kwheeler! You have already progressed from "Noob" to "less of a Noob" with this setup. your next tank will be even better! especially if you leave the crypts alone!! lol!!
Good luck with the move buddy!

Thar she is in the last days before the move. The L. palustris was swapped for L. lacustris x brevipes or something like that. I liked it and wish I had a little more time for it to grow but life happens
Be sure to check out the new yet familar scape in the journal once its posted

|kwheeler91||Just moved into my new apartment. Had to uproot all the plants to catch the fish so I took the opportunity to do some rescaping. Only time will tell how it will turn out, needs a little filling in. I have a few pics of how it looked right before the move that I will post tomorrow if I find the camera they are on. Thinking about starting a new journal for the new scape with a cleaned up timeline of the tank, maybe some pics older than this thread to show my progress as a planted tanker from noob to less of a noob|

Haha thanks. Is fredo there an acd/acd mix too or a blue tick? Floppy ears are throwing me off.
Baylees better bottom, sold by a guy on aquabid whos name I cant remember. I dont think he runs auctions anymore but I could give you his email and he will probably sell you some.
He was a plants guy, claims this mix grows plants well and contains traces of all the nutrients needed, micros anyway I think, to grow plants. It has always worked really well for me. I have never tried any other plant substrates so I cant compare but I grew crypts stems and what not with little to no supplements, depending on lighting, for quite a while. I now dose ei and use root tabs too. I like this stuff because it looks good and you can vacuum it without it going up the tube. He had it in a smaller sandlike grain size as well.

Keep the C. wendtii and just add the H. pinnatifida, I tried growing it and it all died and I know it's a pottasium pig and likes a rich substrate too. I was going to ask you about the Baylees better bottom substrate because it looks like just tiny river stone and I'm suprised to see your plants doing so well.
BTW, I love Rocko he is a really cool looking dog annd I think he could be the long lost brother to Fredo, this is his pup photo, he's 4 now and is almost completely black.
|04-29-2012 04:31 PM|
Trimmed the rest. Doesnt look so out of whack now. Thinking about removing the big red wendtii in the middle and replacing it with pinnatifida. Also in the process of getting some keei. It will either go on the left, replacing the undulata or the right, replacing the tropica crypt.
|04-27-2012 03:00 AM|
I did the fern thing for a while, just sold 80 bucks worth of nljf and then a bunch of regular and tropica stuff I had. my forty gallon was all crypts and ferns just got tired of it, thus the stems. I may try the nature aquarium look one day, but not until i have a pressurized set up and a better tank to do it in.The anubias I have in there are algified, not enough co2 for that unless they were tucked away under something. I do want to get some pricier crypts just dont have the funds atm. Maybe when I get to collecting some darters speedie will still want to trade me some of his
Dont hate on my bulbs, they are growing me some pretty nice plants right now lol
|04-27-2012 01:32 AM|
|crazydaz||Hmmm....you could jam pack that baby with some narrow-leaf or Phillipine java fern instead, along with a ton of anubias. I like the idea of the L. Repens along with a nice bunch of L. sp. 'Red' that you already have in there. Get some smaller, rarer crypts. Presto, Bro. Presto. Yes, you will need to change your bulbs. Good Lord=3 yr. old bulbs???!!! LOL!|

Perhaps you will take advice from some of us more "learn-ed" persons, kwheeler91, who REPEATEDLY warned you about removing the lucens in the first place. Just kidding around Bro. It just looks a little empty to me now, is all. I would say commit to your vision and see what you can do with the new DW and space in that area. You can always do the "safe" thing and put it back, but that would be a little lame now. Brainstorm a bit and come up with something new!
Surprised to hear that the rotala creeps with a relatively minimal photoperiod and with a four hour break!! Your light must be pretty friggin' intense when it is on!! Try trimming the creeping edges off and see how it responds....maybe you can train it to grow upwards.
