Wow, update is way over due. I did not realize it had been so long since I last posted on this tank.
Here is a quick shot of the tank, I need to do some serious trimming/replacement! The roots are packed into the Riparium cups and grow over the top and out the bottom till they touch the substrate. Looks like I have a weekend project coming up.
All the fish, Shrimp and snails are very happy and my LF Albino Bristlenose Pleco finally started growing his bristles. I've had him for over 2 years and they finally started to show up about 4 months ago. He's still my favorite!
The tank is still very low maintenance, Clean the filter out every 3-4 months and add ferts 2 times a week or so. Change the water about once a month at best.
