Mortarion I have read all of your journals, and I am constantly blown away by your eye for detail man, it's fantastic, especially in both incarnations of this cube, it's a real inspiration.

I'm slowly gathering parts for my own first planted tank, I only hope that one day, it will turn out as nicely as yours. depending on the range of plants avaliable here in Australia that is...

VadimShevchuk wow, i hope you do a 180 gallon one day. Tank looks so good!

CL Hey, UG. I was hoping you'd come back. I figured something was up. Thanks for the update! That mp sure has grown a lot, as have the other plants.
Looking forward to the story.. I think

Outlawboss Glad to see you back UG, and that things are improving. I know I'm not the only one who missed seeing your posts while you were away.

Francis Xavier Hey man, take heart.

I've had more Nano disasters, upfront moves and relocations than I care to count or admit to in the past two years or so. Texas to Seattle to New York City and back again hasn't been very fortuitous to keeping any long term setups. And every...freaking...time...I move it means that all the plants are lost, the hard-to-get-for-the-area or rare shrimp I've gotten have either died immediately upon arrival or had to be given away. I can't even do a real scape again until August. It's a major buzz kill having to start from square one each time. Awesome supply of whatever plant carefully grown over months for nearly instant aquascape in the next tank? gone. Each. Time. No matter how much preparation, no matter how many lessons learned from the last attempt, things just go wrong. Freak heat waves and traffic jams, power outages and floods. Let's not even get started on all the personal baggage of the people involved in each transit affair.

Point is, all of that bs has lead to a pretty cool opportunity coming up. And while my complete start over stories have very little to do with what happened with you, I'm just sayin:

It's worth all the crap that comes with Life.

Ugly Genius I can't say much.
Not yet, at least. Give me a bit -- maybe a couple of weeks -- and I'll tell you all about Sofie, the flu, my girl, and everything else that followed.
It's a good story. It's got heartbreak, despair, death, transcendence, and, ultimately, hope. After that, you'll understand why I haven't written.
And I'm pretty sure you'll forgive me for leaving all of you hanging.

Anyway, given all that, this is the best I can do shot-wise.

Might chugs along with no help from me. It's the only tank that has survived everything that went down. Not that that's a bad thing; because everything that happened, happened exactly as it should have, and in the end, that's what matters most.

But that'll have to wait.

You'll understand why.

Francis Xavier Hey UG. Tank's developing nicely. I found it interesting that the shape formed out of the way you positioned your rocks is pretty similar to the way the driftwood looked in the previous setup.

By the way, I'm jealous that you get to live in San Fran.

Dollface Let us know how that unknown moss grows in. I was eyeing it at AFA but 7-8$ was a little too much for me.

AlexXx wow! that Mini Rose Moss looks amazing!

Ugly Genius

Inspired by Honda


Just got this.
think the moss on the top of the rock is Mini Rose Moss, but I'm not certain.
I got it today at AFA. It was labeled as Unknown Moss.
It's smaller than Mini Rose, but it could be in its emersed state.
BTW, I picked the wrong day to go to Japantown. Cherry Blossom Festival. Super crowded.

Dude's a trip. (Although "Little Guy", might actually be a chick. I'll know in a few months.)[/I].
If you like watching shrimp go round and round try a round tank. When I 1st setup the curvilinear II I had a shrimp that would go round and round and round and round and round. Once the plants started growing it stopped doing laps.
