Vin Photo update!!!

somewhatshocked I love this simple setup so much. And that Betta is amazing!

Vin Thanks for the tank love !

I am pretty happy with the overall look. Can't wait for the bacopa and hydroclyte to dense up.

Surprisingly (or not) my frogbit is doing horrible in this tank. Its all melting slowly. I believe it might be the fact that it has no lid and therefore its exposed to less humidity ? What do you guys think ?

psalm18.2 That is a relaxing looking spot. I could sit there all day.

miuYH Those roots are insane!!
So cool

I<3<*))))>< Haha love the betta's name... and why he is named so. Stunning boy as well!

Glad to see your plants are doing well!! They are looking great too, crazy roots on some of them!
This is my time stumbling into this journal, but even if I had seen it sooner I wouldn't have been much help. Still a newb to this whole planted tank concept myself. I have a few I can grow ok so far, but don't know a whole lot about how to fix them,... yet.

Overall completely loving this setup!

Are you planning on adding any submerged plants? Or maybe some driftwood perhaps? The rocks are great looking!

Vin Hi everyone !

I know from all the impatient comments that you guys have been dying for an update! I have been busy lately but I managed to take a few picture of the tank after I cleaned it yesterday.

Photos update:

Vin OK update!

Probly looks exactly the same as the last update !

But if you look closer.....

You can see the crazy roots the cyperus shot out ! My hopes are back up for this plant!

And some emerging bacopa and hydroclyte:
