I'm pretty much done with the scape of this tank. I really don't want to take it down since this is my first aquascape ever and the shrimps and plants are still doing well. It becomes the house of my red cherry shrimps and some random bucephalandra plants.

Also, my echinodorus parviflorus in this tank is producing babies one after a way I've never experienced before. I created a new thread for the plant which can be found here:

I changed the lighting bulbs recently (from 2x6500K daylights to 1x6500K daylight + 1xroseate hue)...and really love the look of the pink bulb produce.

This is how the tank looks like right now...not so proud to show...

This tank needs a little to a lot of cleaning when I got more time for it. I did trim the moss tree down a little bit, sold 1-2 buce. plants. I'm still debating on the HM (baby tears) on the left and the crypt wendii, should I uproot them or not?

junglefowl So I have bought more buces recently and want to make this tank a buces plants home.

Had to remove some of stem plants since they grow crazy and took up so much space...especially this baby tears

Now I want to show everyone what I just got, took me almost 2 hours just to tie it on rocks and arrange it in the tank

Let see how well the buces will grow for me.
Will take a full pix of the tank!

junglefowl I had my diy CO2 running while I got like 20 RCS in there. I let it run 24/7 and didn't control the bps at all. Then when I change to pressured CO2 with a timer, I think that when my RCS started to breed fast.

This used to be my recipe and work really well (almost 2 weeks):
2L bottle: 1/2 teaspoon of yeast + 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda + 2 tablespoons of sugar...then fill up to 2/3 of the bottle with warm water (not hot)

Subtletanks91 Beautiful tank and wonderful journal. I love your tiger shrimp, I have one too looks just Ike yours. I had a female and she died, so I tried artificially hatching them, it didn't work

But beautiful tank. Did you run diy co2 before or while the shrimp were in the tank and what was your recipe and how did you control the bps

junglefowl @slapmonster: now you make me feel good and embarrassed at the same time
I know a lot of people can do better than me. I'm learning from aquascapers and plantedtankers

Thank you! I should have updated my tank after trim.

Still thinking that I should move plants around or rescape but don't have time yet. The crypt wendii on the left front is getting big but still looks good. Should I take it out and replace with smaller plants? Don't know yet.

And the HM(baby tears) seems like really good carpet in the back if it stays short.

junglefowl Updating my tank before trimming, it becomes a Dutch style aquascape

I become fascinated with bucephalandra plants because of my brother Riversun, so I bought these 2 plants and really didn't regret buying it, they are beautiful

junglefowl Just sold these little pretty plants come from this tank
