I think I'll have to try Alternanthera renekii again. I tried it a few years ago and never had any luck with it.

Sorry. I totally forgot to answer this. I know it was a long time ago, but here is what I have seen so far. I had DIY CO2, ferts in the water column, and medium light on it. It seemed to love it, from my experience.

Ok. I am still alive. I actually just moved the tanks around today. I moved the rack over a bit. Put the salty tank in place of the 20high, and put that tank on the bottom shelf of the rack. I will probably replace it with a 20 long or a 29 gallon tank. Not sure. I will probably post a pic tomorrow. Ya know, after the end of the world and all that.

Ok. Picture time.

The whole thing.


Top tank. Need to thin out the L144's.


Middle. Need more cardinal tetras.


Bottom. Need to replace one of the loud filters and need a new light.


That is all for now.

Thank you.

It is 36" wide and 18" deep with 5 shelves and 6' feet tall. Does that help?
And at only $50 bucks at Target, not a bad deal.

Found eggs. Before the hatch out tank was ready. *Facepalm* So I put them in a fry catcher for now.





We will see what happens.

I will see what I can do.

Things are ok. Waiting to start my new job, and the kid is getting big. Other than not working yet, it is all good. You?

Such simple but great looking tanks, usually with my luck I always have to move things around and I still never find the right look I'm trying to get, Great tanks! Keep the pictures coming.

Thank you. I may try to get some more up tomorrow. All the eggs hatched a week or two ago, and they are in a separate tank now. There are tons of them.
