Beautiful scape, I'm also a fan of the 20g long. Subscribing!

This past Saturday and Sunday our lfs Aquascapes had their 4th Anniversary Sale. These sales are special events not just for the prices but this is when the rare plants come out. Sorry, I didn't buy any of them but next week I'll be kicking myself.

Saturday's special was 20% off of aquasoil and 30% off of fish and plants.(I was there@10am) Sunday's special was 20% off of ADA tanks and hardscape materials, and limited bucephalandras.(I had to work ) I was planning to buy some aquasoil(didn't happen, spent too much on plants and fish) and a Tank(but I was still at work). Oh well, I guess I'm going to buy it at full price... At least I know it would help keep Aquascapes around.

Here are a few things I bought.









Eleocharis flavescens



Just a regular crypt but sooo red. This went into my jungle low tech 10 gallon.



These plants were sitting in their bag for about 6 hours because I had a function to attend to. I also took out a rock in my 30 gallon to make room for them.

Nice hardscape. This type can get old, but I'd say yours looks elegant.

Thanks! I really want to replace one of my 10 gallons with a 20L.

Default Possible Change of Plans

I went to the lfs this past Saturday and bought some Seiryu stones for future scapes. I found myself today, trying to see if these new stones looked better in my current scape. Has this happened to anyone? Did you change the scape towards the end of a DSM?

Looks like you picked up some nice plants at Aquascapes. Is that an Alternanthera 'variegated' I see in the last pic? That's one of my favorites.

Nice grab on that hairgrass too, I don't think many people have that species yet.

I think it's human nature to second guess your choice for your stones. You wouldn't be the first person to feel that way. I like the stone you have though.

i envy your purchases greatly... and now am second guessing myself.... probably should've bought the whole bin... whyyyy

edit: sorry, didn't realize something
the colors on that arctuata are amazing. I didn't recognize it at first... and the inclinata too...
if you ever decide to sell your clippings, you have a ready buyer here. :P

Hahaha Kai808, you ended up getting the other portion of the e. flavescens! I'm growing it in a poke container outside cause I had no place for it now. (but I really had to have it lol)

Is this it? I hope it does well in this tank. I don't think the light is strong enough because everything is reverting back to green.

I'm hoping the hairgrass spreads so I can use it in the future. Right now I got it growing in this tank and emersed.

I guess I'll leave the stones in but try to raise it high above the substrate.

Thanks!

Haha... We were having that same talk with jojo that day about regretting to not buy it. So we bought it. If it grows, I'll give you some cuttings.

Default Inspiration Aulani

Recently I took the family to the Disney's Aulani for a day. Disney created a very natural enviroment which I thought I could use for the next tank.





This wood is probably made of concrete. I wish i had the skill to create driftwood.


The Koi pond
















This is the first time I saw one of these.


Look who I found


Enjoy! Visit Hawaii sometime.

It's Eleocharis flavescens. It stays short and is very slow growing so far.
