cwinson85 Well it been a couple years since I was really last in the game, Ive had a low tech tank for about a year now. Couldnt help myself any longer and went and got a new light and c02 very similar to this old tank.

Who can identify the plant in the far right. Redish top green bottom (when happy). I think this was my all time favorite plant and I want more!

If you know the name let me know, if you have some stems let me know !

bonaparte What kind of light do you have over the tank with the L. Aromatica in it? I love that plant but I don't think I have the watts for it.

cwinson85 Thanks guys, sadly Ive been out of the hobby for a little over a year and just got back into another 29g tank, you guys should take a peek and see what you think, let me know if you have any advise!

ktownhero Yeah great looking tank. I don't know why that one guy complained about the banana plant, I think it fits perfectly well in this tank.

bonaparte That's an amazing transformation from day one. You started out good looking but your tanks are gorgeous now. Thanks for the inspiration.

cwinson85 thanks, your blyxa really helped me fill in that foreground there!!

sewingalot How great this looks! I am very impressed. I don't even miss the driftwood this time. Great pictures, too.

cwinson85 wow i put some flourish iron in yesterday and the plants sucked it right up!! the reds loved it! cant wait to start ie dosing to see how the plants take to that......

cwinson85 thanks guys! ill start saving up for you sean, i just clipped the tops the other day and trashed them that stuff grows like crazy! It kind of just worked out that way in the front because the substrate was too shallow for the blyxa but i like the way it turned out. the green neons seem to like swimming down there in the front! i would like to try some HC down there but i have never had good luck with it? maybe i can if i start dosing those ferts it will work out......

mizu-chan Looks wonderful. A really very beautiful set up.

Minsc That's looking really nice!
I like that you didn't bring the blyxa all the way to the front. Are you planning on trying to sneak anything else in there, or just leaving it bare?

If you ever have some of that sunset available for trade, please let me know.

cwinson85 cleared up...
