Cajun27 Awesome tank!
I know you are pumping in very low CO2 now, but can you give a rough idea on how much CO2 you pumped in when you switched from emersed to submersed? Also, did you keep track of the temperature in the emersed state when you were misting? What temperature do you keep the tank at presently? Ohhhh, so many questions, ha! Thanks!

I could probably sell a few feet of it I'd imagine.

My 60fs are fine but similarly left alone. They look like jungles right now. My other 90p doesn't even look scaped anymore unfortunately. I still have a big rescape planned for that in February or March though.
I'm sure my tank would love it if you send the trimmings to me!

youjettisonme Update: So, this tank ended up placing #172 overall in the IAPLC. Not too bad. I know I could have done better if I would have focused more on the photography. Oh well. However, I was 3rd overall out of the USA entrants so that's pretty cool I think.

If anyone wants a link to the article about this tank, you may find it here:

I got up to 150 miles a week for awhile that's 1 x 60 miles and 3 x 30 miles a week. But, that's when I was laid off, so I had the time to rest up. Now I am down to 2 x 30 miles a week plus running 10 miles. Running saves me lots of time as I don't have to get the gear ready and get twice the work out in half the time. But, road biking is more fun.

Oh, btw, nice tank!
Thanks! Yeah, I am gearing up for race season big time. I ride about 5 times per week.

As for the mosses, it's all DSM. I think that I detail it pretty specifically in this thread, but I know that Aquascaping World is doing an article on this tank soon so you should look out for it. I go super in depth on all the methods I employed to make this tank flourish.

As for the tank itself, it's going well. I barely touch it, and it still manages to look cared for some how. Got to love the slow growers. Now my 90p in the other room? That's another story entirely. It makes jungles look well kept.

styxx Hello youjettisonme, my old colleague! Nice to see another gorgeous tank you've got! Tell me how do you like those True Lumen Pros? The low profile is impressive, but I see that you have two of them. How many do you think you'd need for our 90Ps if growing HC/Glosso and other high light foregrounds?

How's the PRL colony going?
Hey my friend! Tell me when you score that bike. I will definitely show you around. I raced for 7 years, but then I quit and started playing with plants. There you go.
