BiscuitSlayer OK, I am going to take some pictures of my tank on Monday night and post them either the same night or on Tuesday morning.

Right now, though, my tank isn't looking so hot. I am using it to grow out several different plants and I haven't been as concerned with how it looks as much as quick and good growth of certain plants. I bought a few very small amazon swords that cost me about 8 bucks and my hope has been to grow them quickly so I can trade them for store credit at one of my LFS. Because of this, it is pretty chaotic and unorganized in my tank. When I do post pictures, you will see what I am getting at.

lescarpentier was gracious enough to send me some great plants that I am also growing out a bit. I have become much more aggressive with keeping up with my fertilization and tweaking my CO2 injection to get the plants to where I want to get them, but my scape doesn't look as good as it did a year ago. LOL

Ultimately, I will probably keep a handful of the plants in my tank and start over with several new ones. Then I will basically recreate my scape to look more pleasing and organized. It will probably be at least 3 or 4 months until I get around to doing that though.

fastfreddie Did you ever get your new plants? I saw you called your tank a disaster on EBB's 29 journal, but the last pic I see here is anything but disaster, but that was forever ago.

Let's see an update!

BiscuitSlayer Ya know, I kind of let things go and basically the only things I had left were Dwarf sag (which was a big mat that smothered everything else at the bottom level of the tank), and an anubias forrest that has completely covered my driftwood.

I guess the pressure is going to be back on me with some new plants coming.

lescarpentier Hope to see an update soon.

BiscuitSlayer I promise an update this week. Things are starting to settle down for me a bit and I am going to start some projects that I have let fallen to the wayside.

JFC - Thanks! Pretty soon, the Blyxa will be looking good in your tank.

I need to take some pics today. I trimmed it back quite a bit so it looks like there is actually some room to swim in there now.
