AndrewH Wow, pretty drastic change. Still looks good, but will definitely look better once everything has grown back in a bit.

Nice job.

mpodolan Here's a quick shot of this tank now. Excuse the dirty glass and general messiness of the tank. I recently got things (flow, co2, ferts) back in order and just moved some things around. I am also growing out some rotala nanjenshan on the left side (from a few small stems). I just trimmed the fern way back, so it is just now growing back in. I still need to re-arrange the stones, so they will be more visible, and I need to clean those pipes of some leftover (but luckily dead) algae.

mpodolan Here's an update for this tank. I ripped out all of the val. nana, as it got all BBA infested when I had a CO2 problem. I replaced it with some didiplis diandra, which is still very short, so you can't even really see it yet. I added a few small pieces of narrow leaf java to the manzanita, and threw in a couple stems of hygro angustifolia that I received as an extra with a plant order (I didn't really have anywhere else to put it yet, so for now it's in here). I have started spot treating the BBA with excel to kill it off before I remove it. My CO2 levels are back in order, so that should take care of it. Sorry about the ugly powerhead in the front. I just added it to increase circulation while I try to get rid of the BBA. As always criticize away!




Some nasty BBA turning purple from excel

mpodolan I finally did a trim yesterday. Here are a few quick shots. I still have a bit of rearranging to do. Let me know what you think.

AndrewH Definitely some very nice growth for 2 months!!!

It's looking good, but I can't see any fo the rocks

mpodolan They actually get along very well. I've had them together for a couple years. I do need to trim....badly. It grew out while I was away for 3 weeks. I plan to do that later this week.

ikuzo whoa tiger barbs and blue gourami. do you have any problem with those?

you need trimming.

mpodolan Actually, here's a quick photo of the tank right now.

mpodolan Thanks! I've been out of town for a few weeks, so I just set my light timers to 5-6 hours and let it go. It's totally overgrown right now, but I'll post some pics in the next couple days. I'll be doing a big trim sometime this week so I'll probably do some re-arranging, too

jaidexl Looks good, can't wait to see it fill in!
11-08-2007 08:29 PM
mpodolan Thanks for the input. It's actually all out right now, as I needed to soak it some more. I'll try some different setups once it's ready to go

turbosaurus I never thought I'd say this- but..

I think you have TOO much wood in that tank. It pulls my eyes in every direction. I think if you removed some of it, it would make it more harmonious. right now it seems a little, I don't know, a little cluttered?

CmLaracy narrow leaf is much different imo, and has a great look

mpodolan I decided on the anubias instead of the fern, as I had java fern in here before, and I wanted to try something different.
