Update Picts...

Updated shot of my Little Do Aqua 4.5 gallon scape. It's starting to come along.
Nothing special, but what the heck LOL !! I've got a couple of Tiger Shrimps in there but,
I am thinking of changing them out since they are really hard to see in general. I have an order coming in from the "Wet Spot" Oregon area with some "Chili Rasboras" and since they pretty much max out at around 3/4 of an inch, I think they might work out. I've heard though that they like little current which I have here, and a bit more "Shade, less direct light which I don't have etc. in order to achieve good coloration. ( Deep Reds etc.)

Veneer Great photos. What kind of fogger are you using in the open-top with emergent plants?

Pretty easy actually. Just trim accordingly and shape to what you want. Initially, it doesn't look too good but will grow in shortly.. I'll have to say it's a fun PLANT to work with and has a lot of possibilities.. Thank you all for the kind words !! Nothing fancy here really on this scape but beings that it's a high lit tank etc. that in itself is a challenge ....
Just recently went to LED's. "Finnex" so things have to adjust etc..

alipper Love that first tank also.

Knotyoureality The one thing I do envy those with C02--the rapid growth that's possible to allow for very fast turnover on experimental set ups. But not so envious that I'm willing to give up the ease of my low-tech.

Beautiful 'scapes!

"Latest Trim" picture with stats..

Thank you for the kind words ! Just a lot of fun in general ! I just did a trim job
on the HC here and have been lucky that's it's worked out good for me as far as growth
and no algae issues.

Tank: 10 gallon "Radius" great little tank ! Curved fronts, Glass...
Substrate: Amazonia
Lighting: Dual T5 HO 24 watters and just added the Coralife 32 watt PC fixture to the back which helped a lot for the Rotala Green sp. as far as Cascading a bit more.
Ferts: Dry Micro/ Macro's alternating on a strict schedule with WC's 30-50% once per wk.
CO2: Pressurized on a timer..

Nothing great on the scape here but just learning how to balance everything out in general.
Thought I would shoot these picts with just the Rear Light on for the heck of it.. Little different.
I'll have to get a "Full Light" shot on this since it's rather hard I know to see everything in its entirety..

Up to date Pictures

Been trying to get the ferts a little better in check along with lighting. The current lighting are the Dual 24 watt T5 HO's but I just added a small Compact Florescent in the back as well and that has helped on the Rotala Green for a more Cascading effect as seen in the pict.
Ferts are daily. Dry and Pressurized CO2 to go along with..
