I guess that will be my last update since nobody cares to give feed back or nothing.

U r not asking any questions lately, just showing pics of ur tank.

Try to get something more interesting going on, and by that I don't mean I get a cheese pirate ship for bubbles.

Search for "Aquascaping checklist", read that thread to get some ideas.

Nice progression! I hadn't seen this journal before but the Betta is gorgeous too! Maybe try some thicker driftwood on one side of the tank, or at the base of the twig/root pieces? To add some depth and continuity? Anyways, nice tank! Don't be discouraged

Hey thanks guys. I took out that small piece of wood it was not working for me and shut of the air stone. I'm going to get more plants soon and try to find a big piece of drift wood.

Sweet! What kind of ludwigia? And chance of some pics? Have you decided what you're going to do in terms of hardscape? Replacing the driftwood or some stones?

I don't remember what kind of ludwigia but it's from the little package they sell at petsmart. I also ordered some dwarf sag from a guy on here last night. I'm probably not going to add drift wood because it's going to be like a jungle in my tank after I plant all the plants when they get here. I will get pics when everything is planted.
