Yeah, I was able to make it down for the show. The talks were great, the contest tanks were gorgeous, and the planted tank chatter was inspiring. Seeing old friends I haven't seen in years and finally meeting people I've only talked to online was good too.

Wow! That 300 gallon of yours is huge! Nice start. Good luck with that.

That tank has grown in amazingly well. When I had soil in my tanks I noticed the Anubias Barteri grew out of control. The difference between soil and inert substrate for that plant is just insane. It spread like crazy and I was constantly pulling out new plants. It nearly took over my tanks

Thank you. I've been wanting to do a large emersed start tank for a while now. I hope it goes as well as I think it will and am looking forward to seeing how the different plants respond to this treatment.

I gotta try planting a few rhizomes on the substrate too.

Good looking tank! What sized CO2 tank are you using?

Thanks. I'm using a 10lb CO2 tank, which lasts me about three months.
