Thanks! I really need to update!! It's just i am doing a little rescape and as this is a dirt tank I do it in small junks every water change. Stay tuned hopefully I can get a pic up tomorrow.

BTW cories, gbr, and rummies are a fantastic 29g stock

Default Update 1/19/13

I have moved some plants around to free more space for swimming room and my fish seem a ton more confident and healthy. So I think the tank is looking a lot better now and has more of that balance between swimming space and jungle area. I also tried to frame my driftwood with the plants as one person mentioned. Tell me what you guys think and how you would improve it.

Here's a link to a youtube update! Sub if you like the channel!

Default Update 3/6/13

Hey guys, felt it was time to update after I did a relatively large re scape to open up the front of my tank and free up some swimming space for my fish!
Now that I have the finnex ray 2, I added more dwarf sag and I really hope it goes crazy just like the other plants. The new light has made a huge difference and even though its still low tech the growth has been incredible with this light.

If you are interested in a video update, please check out my youtube channel!

Tell me what you guys think of the tank now! Thanks

That's a remarkably good effort for a first planted tank, I love the cave effect

Jungle!!! I love overgrown tanks like yours. They always seem so natural. Great job for any number of attempts at a planted tank.
