That's a first, an online TPT tiff between GF & BF. I like it, it adds drama to the tank journal.

Planting delayed until Tuesday. Between reshipping from the wrong house and Monday being a Canadian holiday I won't be getting my package until Thursday.

Crossing my fingers for plants to keep healthy. The seller mentioned he'd replace anything that wasn't in good condition due to the trouble.

Well I thought all the ramshorn snails from my previous tank would have passed away in the move (and cold temperatures of sitting in the garage for 3-4 days in substrate). Seems a few survived .... added some friends to take care of business.

Plants have been added. As a result of the late shipment all my red stem plants the Cabomba Pulcherrima and Rotala Wallichii were a brown mush. Going to pick up some red plants from LFS tomorrow.

Here are some pictures from the planting. Going to likely re-position the Pogostemon Erectus.

FTS:


Close up of the HC & Anubias barteri var. nana planted onto driftwood. Going to look forward to see how this turns out. I planted the HC like James Findley describes in 'Nature of Chaos'

Went to the LFS picked up some red plants to add some contrast. Not set on the placement - will likely find myself moving some things around as I see how the grow in.

Thanks, the hairgrass is a lot taller than I wanted (and I trimmed it before planting). I'm going to let it spread over the next few weeks and will trim it short to have it look more like the parvula species.

Awesome hardscape, this is going to look great once it all fills in. Looking forward to updates.

Thanks, I've cut back the lighting to 6 hours right now ... if things go south I'll cut it back to 5.

Looks great, I want to see it when 3rd plan plants will be long enough to cut them. Very nice and clean setup.
