|toadpher||Slowly it is coming together. Anyone want my ludwigia? I'm looking to get rid of all of it (two kinds, ludwigia red and some variegated form). Will trade for swords, Anubias, crypts and Java Fern.|

I'm not sure if I posted this tank here before but here's the tank that I settled down on after downgrading from high tech setups because of school.
Soil ADA Amazonia
Lighting Finnex Stingray
Plants montecarlo, Anubias stardust and Snow White, different varieties of bucephalandras, mini pellia, hairgrass and fissidens.
Tank set up duration around half of a year
No co2, a water change when I feel like it or have the time. The last duration lasted 3 months without a water change. I'm digging this low tech, stress free style of tanking. They just take forever to grow

Havent been on this thread in awhile....certainly some beautiful additions to the thread!
Freemananana: I really love your scape...very natural and I am sure in person this is an absolute stunning setup. Also proof of what can be achieved with only a couple of plant species.
LancerLife: I am jealous of your barbs, lol Tank is giving me some motivation to get my own new 55G going....they certainly are a hard shape to scape but you have done very well.
I agree with others Black Ruby barbs are stunning...recently got a group of 20 for my 56G and the males have wicked color certainly a nice contrast to my Turq severum. SunSun canisters are amazing...I think a 304 on a 75G is just about perfect. I am running a 304 and a 302 on my Jag's 75G and the water is crystal clear.

I think I'm starting to get a hang of this planted tank thing. The latest rescape. I got a great deal on a bronze crypt from an lfs. Decent size mother plant with a lot of baby plants coming off of it. I'm excited to see them all grow out! The red tiger lotus has been the easiest plant to grow BY FAR. I love that plant and the floating pads. Looking forward to seeing it flower.
Anyone know how to get rid of that green hair algae? It's out-competing my Anubias Petite on the driftwood.

While the tank has had it's ups and downs, primarily running into the woes of buying a used tank, it is still quite pretty to me. Almost achieved the jungle style scape I was going for! There's 20+ congo tetras and about a dozen rainbowfish pictured.
EDIT: Forgot to mention, it's my 125 gallon tank in my signature. Low to medium light, no ferts, weekly-ish water changes, daily feedings, dirt capped in sand.

My first planted tank:
65 Gallon moderately planted tank at 50 days old; my attempt to create a natural looking freshwater environment (not sure if successful or what) using readily available, or home sourced materials. Minimal equipment: just a smal sponge filter and an airstone I run every night time.
Substrate: Backyard dirt under gravel and sand
Decors: Stones, leaf litter, branches and twigs - all locally sourced
Lighting: Just an 11w bulb for lighted viewing; 8 to 10 hours of indirect natural light per day
Plants: Vallisneria, Amazon Swords, Bacopa Monnieri, Pennywort, Ludwigia
Stock: 8 Tiger Barbs, 5 Mollies, 4 Kuhli Loach, 1 Red Tail Black Shark (juvenile); looking to replace the mollies with either rainbowfish or danios to make this a pure Southeast Asian tank.
Maintenance: no ferts, no co2, no gravel vacuum. 20% weekly water change. Algae are allowed to grow on decors and back glass - I only clean the front and sides once a week. No excess growth since day 1. A little tannin tint from leaf litter and twigs can be noticed when the tank is viewed from the side.

Arulius Barbs!! You don't see those too often. I had 7 or 8 years ago. It's one of my top two favorite barbs (the other being Black Ruby Barbs).

This is going to look great grown in. Do you like the sun sun 303? Would you buy it again?
