Quick I-Phone shot
The hardscape was rescued from other tanks- you will see some of the same seiryu stones in the original configuration. Not necessarily the best composition, but a little fun and with lots of interesting features IRL. The HC carpet should tie it together nicely and when the Blyxa J. gets after it, it should have a nice mix of texture. I will try to put up some better photo's soon.

The tank has been rescaped in early January. I (more or less) ignored the tank last summer and when you ignore HC, bad things happen. I had a nearly insurmountable overheating problem when the glass top was on (anytime) and during the entire summer. We don't have central air and rely on swamp coolers-somewhat counterproductive with aquariums. I am not willing to add a chiller to the system. I will be switching over to LEDs in the not so distant future. I have taken the t-5 light down to a single geisemann bulb, since I am not raising HC for sale (anymore), and don't want to deal with that level of light intensity.
Pictures to follow

I've been looking at 12 gallon long tank journals... May I know what Light, watts, brand, light between the substrate?
Thank you! you can see my signature, I post my tank there.

Woah, you're from Utah! Not a common find on here! Do you remember what store you found the rocks at? I recently just got some petrified wood from my Gma in St. George to put in my tanks, love its color.
I'll have to check out your other tanks.

Pretty much there. Will be doing a serious trim within a week. Neons finally getting after it. A siamensis is giving them motivation. He's a bit of a monster. Just a little update.
I hear there is a sticky for this type of tank. I'll check it out.
Still contemplating a camera, lens and some practice. A professional photographer friend of mine may take a peak at it.

|endgin28||Re: trimming DHG belem, I have done a haircut twice, and have gone runner hunting a couple of times. My belem has remained compact so far and low. 2" or less height wise. Don't think trimming from the top will do anything negative.|

|Uptown193||Hey do you trim your Belem. I am not sure if I should trim mine. Mine is growing in with a curve, unless this is normal.|

|GMYukonon24s||Nice tank and looks like your having good growth. I like that size tank.|
|03-02-2012 07:34 AM|
|endgin28||Maybe strips. Cutting along the front lip. It did do a lot for two months from planting. Just leaving the top on has got the little rascals into the moving mode. Hope I can keep it alright|

|vvDO||Judging by how fast things are growing for you, you'd likely need a lawnmower|

|endgin28||I am curious what I should do in the next trim. Any advice?|
