It's been awhile since I posted in this journal. The tank survived the flood and the BGA was taken cared of. It doesn't look like melting occurred but I did pull out the HC while taking out the BGA and dead roots. I also found some riccia in the tank and have no idea on how it got there. I've never had it before.

Well here is a quick pic. I lost my tripod attachment so it may be out of focus.

Thanks!



Don't mind the ugly, green spray bar... one of these days I get the right tubing and make a good one.

Thanks! The other tank is currently sitting emersed. I need to find a CO2 manifold to split it off my regulator. When are you going to post your tank(s)?

The DSM was going good but I waited too long to flood it. Your tank looks ready to fill. I can't wait to see it!

Hello Kai,
Ive been gone from the planted tank scene for a while and this is my first post since coming back home. I love the way your tank looks and the placement of the rocks. The riccia more than likely hitch hiked in with your hc and its gonna be really hard to get rid of it. Riccia from my experience doesn't like Excel dosing. This is how I got rid of my Riccia but be very carefull because most plants do not respond well to Excel also. Keep up the good work and I look forward to seeing how your tank progresses.

Damn! Welcome back! I feel honored that you're checking out my journal. I was inspired by a lot of the 12 gallons on this site, but yours was the only one I saw in person and I was amazed.

I kinda like the riccia the way it looks now, but yeah I know what it's going to turn into. I think I got it all out(probably not).

Thanks again for stopping by.

The pictures don't do the tank justice but let me remind everyone what your tank looked like.

These were taken from the aquascapes show 2011.

Haha thanks for your kind words. I didn't think anyone had pictures of that tank lol. I'm slowly getting back in the game again and will be starting a couple new journals for probably two 120p's or a 120 and 90p. Just collecting all the necessary equipment and stuff right now. Just let me know if you need any help with anything. I'll try and help the best I can. Keep up the good work

Cool! I can't wait to see the new journals. Hey did you ever think about doing a 90 F?

Thanks again.

Happy New Year!

I know it's a couple of days late but, I've been busy in the Holiday season and haven't been updating this journal.

First of all, my 36 inch t5no coral life fixture died on me and melted the splash guard. I won't be using that one again. I currently have 2 15watt cfls over the tank and I'm still deciding between the finnex fugeray or ray2. I need to make a decision soon because the HC isn't looking good at all.

My current inhabitants are 3 otto's, 2 SAE, and a bunch of Neos. The ottos and the SAEs are uprooting the HC, so I'll probably take them out.

This tank isn't turning out the way I imagined it to be but It's getting there.

Yeah, I still got the ugly green spray bar.





SAE

Thanks Travis, yeah I should have entered it... I came back from two week vacation and the tank wasn't filled at that point. I didn't think it was ready but it looks like some of the other entries weren't ready too. You should have a journal of your tanks. Getting that 40 ready for the show is a great story. Hopefully I'll enter it this year.
