valleyvampiress Anti-Pjerrot, I have to say you really are an artist. I am amazed at how quickly you can create a masterpiece, just tear it down, and magically create a new one. I have absolutely no eye for aquascaping. From the moment I first put a plant into an aquatic substrate, I have never gotten good at it (I haven't really tried for a while I admit, but I definitely don't have an eye for it).

I, as well as many others here, are eagerly awaiting your updates. And if you have any aquascaping tips/rules of thumb for the not-so-great aquaplant artists, I'd appreciate it.

Anti-Pjerrot In the left "pocket" i had a 500ml bottle with DIY yeast CO2 - with a co2-line going in under the powerhead from the filter making it a mister.

The 14gal is undergoing some seriuos aquascaping and is currently looking like this:

Ankit Excellent tanks

I had a question for you - how were you using the CO2 in the 2.1 gal Nano tank? I'm confused how that worked and what equipment you used.

Anti-Pjerrot Fishlover -> thanks ill try that!

fresh_newby -> thanks - im not looking forward to take it down, since i have to when the 66 is up - Hopefully i can do a quick attemp at an iwagumi on in with the ton of HC i got. Its so thick that its starting to uproot itself...

fresh_lynny AP...great job. I know how small those maculata are, so to look at the full tank shot, it looks like a mini 90 gal! The scale is very nice...not an easy feat.
The HC loves that environmant to boot. I love the fauna too.

fish_lover0591 cool nice job . on the 14 i think you left your magnetic algae scrubber in the tank. that won't help you at all with the algae.. you are supposed to remove it

Anti-Pjerrot epicfish - the 2.1 is down, and I got a 66 gal up next... the pressurized was bought for the 66, but since its not up, i might as well make some use of it

A Hill Tank looks great!

epicfish Haha. Awesome. Using pressurized or still DIY CO2 for your 2.1gal nano?

Anti-Pjerrot It just suddently transformed into this:

epicfish Looks great! How is the DIY CO2 with yeast working out for you? =)

Anti-Pjerrot just a little photo from today:

The HC is 1" thick and growing like mad!

Anti-Pjerrot If you look at the first picture you see some angled iron underneath - the small ones can hold one tank alone... I did the "test" on it, before putting up the tank grabbing the edge and lifting myself up, jumping a little... so im not worried at all. And the wall is solid brick wall.
I actually trying to put up another identical tank next to it, but the wife aint up for it - yet... It would be awsome with two identical tanks, with different scaping.

Heres some more shots - look how much the HC has grown in just 2 weeks. I lost an oto and i havent seen 2 of the SAE since i got them. And one Amandae jumped out some time ago and d(r)ied...

Lawn... (some BBA in it - im cutting it on saturday)

some front shots...

The left side and the rotala roduntifolia was just cut down and trimmed today and yesterday.

Some BG algae in the front - cant get rid of it, so i just puch it down with a creditcard to make it dissapear... for now...

And a SAE
