jargonchipmunk like the last shot a lot. Looks like a path to some near-forgotten ancient shrine.

Update!! =]

I added some pogostemon helferi at the front to test it out. Had been looking for this plant like crazy so I hope it grows!

valen1014 Aw man patches of the HC turned brown. But other patches seem to be growing (upwards) nicely. I don't get it =/

Tank #2

Tank #2 Photos and Update:

Plants seem to be growing well in this tank. I set it up just to hold some plants while I cycled my 20 gallon, once it is ready I will try to rearrange the plants so it looks better.

Tank #1

Tank #1 Photos and Update:

The DHG is spreading VERY SLOWLY. I didn't grow the HC carpet, I just happen to have enough to make it look like a carpet. The pictures is from when it was laid down a few weeks ago but it's still green and hasn't melted. That's a big improvement from the last 2 times I tried to use HC!

Please excuse the background. I haven't set one up yet so I used the backside a music sheet that was laying around ^^;
