I think it is eleocharis vivipara but I'm not sure. I decided not to go that route and just kept only HC in my tank.

Sorry for the late reply. HC is an abbreviated scientific name of the carpet plant I have. It's also called dwarf baby tears. I have unfortunately stopped doing updates for this tank because I haven't changed anything at all and it looks the same as the last update. I've also been extremely busy since school started so I don't have much time to do anything right now.. 17 units is a killer.. I'm planning on hopefully doing a complete tear down of my tank once I'm on my Thanksgiving or Winter break from school and will start over with a new journal!

gotplants Well, it wouldn't do much if I put a full tank shot because the tank hasn't changed much since the last update. But I do have some photos I took recently of some random stuff in my tank.



Here are the painted fire reds I got from my girlfriends tank. I gave her about 5 juvies last year and now she has an extremely overstocked tank full of them. For some reason they are all a light solid orange in her tank and they still keep breeding. I took the most solid ones she had and they turned this red within a month.


Finally caught that amano.. I still need to get another one or two after the last one escaped.


BBA that's dying. There was some BBA growing on my HC as well. I spot treated it and it died within a day. The HC seems to be melting where the BBA was though.


Here's a little juvie I found a few days ago. After a closer look, I found about 5. I had no idea any of the RCS were berried.

Do you think the whole 90 days was worth it on the DSM? Or do you think that once you flooded it, the growth really took off?

Great looking tank, really love what you've done. I'd planned on doing the white background but now I'm leaning towards black again...
Haha thanks. Well I didn't really have a choice on the 3 month dry start because I had to do some other stuff. I didn't really mind it. I just misted every 2 days and filled it when it was ready. It really depends if it's worth it or not. For me it was because it grew so well during the dry start. I've seen others wait 1-2 months during a dry start and the hc barely even grew.

Caleb19 Love this tank. Now you just need to swap out the unsightly Eheim Pipes for some nice glass or acrylic ones. Great Job!

Thanks! Yeah, the black really brings out the colors of the tetras and shrimp.
