this really doesn't have anything to do with my tank. I just like this video
I hope that Santa's Elves bring me some more micros, endlers, and an ada 60p.

did the first major trim on the new scape. I trimmed everything except for the hdyropiper. kind of hoping that it thickens more and spreads more in the foreground before the belem takes over.
I didn't want to trim at first. because of laziness. but I'm glad I did. the e. acicularis was going out of control in the back. any longer and I imagine that it would start browning close to the root because it was growing in so thick and tall.
I'm excited by the way the scape looks with the acicularis short in the background. it would be hard to keep it like that though. Even trimmed the belem a little in places. If I had a larger tank with bigger rocks I think it would all work with the correct perspective without having to trim so aggressively. 'm playing around with a little bit of color on the substrate too to the left of the big rock. I'm using bacter 100 (initially to treat a bga problem) but am digging the effect that it has. Of course I need to bleach the pipes soon. one thing at a time. I've been staring at this tank for hours after the trim. I have to admit. I'm diggin it.

|xmas_one||Nice job man, I'm impressed with your hydropiper, it's far from the easiest plant.|

time to trim the e. acicularis in the background. i sort of do not want to make the effort though because I like how it looks. I guess the real issue will be if it blocks the light from reaching the other two plants. it is getting crazy tall. e belem and hydropiper really taking off. my main time consuming effort is keeping the acicularis at bay and contained. the belem wants to make it's way into the hydropiper field as well. that's tricky because the hydropiper uproots very easily and I need to exercise a lot of patience and be extra delicate when I cut back the belem. everything is super green. my 5lb co2 tank has lasted over a year. my gauge may need replacing but it still reads at full capacity. we shall see. need to bleach the pipes again too.
