The DHG is spreading VERY SLOWLY. I didn't grow the HC carpet, I just happen to have enough to make it look like a carpet. The pictures is from when it was laid down a few weeks ago but it's still green and hasn't melted. That's a big improvement from the last 2 times I tried to use HC! :proud:

Please excuse the background. I haven't set one up yet so I used the backside a music sheet that was laying around ^^;

Plants seem to be growing well in this tank. I set it up just to hold some plants while I cycled my 20 gallon, once it is ready I will try to rearrange the plants so it looks better.

Looks like your plants are off to a good start! :)

Aw man patches of the HC turned brown. But other patches seem to be growing (upwards) nicely. I don't get it =/

I added some pogostemon helferi at the front to test it out. Had been looking for this plant like crazy so I hope it grows!

like the last shot a lot. Looks like a path to some near-forgotten ancient shrine.

Thanks! =] That's more or less the idea that I was going for
