I love it Perch! It's so rarely that one gets to see a tank big enough to house Spadderdock and all those other species that usually outgrow a "normal" large tank. I'm going to enjoy seeing those species growing out to their full size. The variety of plants looks very natural as well. I get a good sense of snorkeling in a weedy part of a lake or pond.

Thanks Phil, that's the look I'm looking for and working to achieve!

This is the newest thread continuing from the others, but I get questions on all 3 threads. I do separate threads on this tank because of so much time between updates.

Default The spatterdock(cape fear) & Ludwigia - Cuba

It's been a week and my Spatterdock 'cape fear' have reached 4 ft and my Ludwigia - Cuba have reached 3 ft. and everything is growing like crazy. I've cut back Giant Green Temple 2 ft. and red & green Tiger lotus 2 ft. several times in a week.
