Buck Heh.... that is some Val

I really like the looks of the Vals in a tank. Its just such a natural looking plant and there is a version of Vallisneria or a similar looking variety found in all bodies of water , salt and fresh, all over the world !

Great photo bro...

By the way... have I ever told you guys that I love Balansae's ?

Zurp Get some plant devouring snails, or some plant eating fish. It is not like you have to worry about them stripping your tank bare.

Rickster I started with 10 corkscrew vals in front. Now there is about 150 and still going. There is jungle val that starts from the left rear and goes all the way across the top and back. So I'm guessing they are about 8 to 10 feet long now. I started with 5 of those and now there are about 30. My crypts, the tall one with skinny leaves dead center, I started with 3 and they were about 4 to 6 inches tall are now all to the surface and have sent out lots of runners. I now have about 15 of those. It's amazing what CO2 will do even with only 4 40 watt tubes.
