I'm really loving the Dutch-like sorting of plants. If anyone is wondering, the Alternanthera Reineckii is the plant in the back left, the Downoi is on the back right, the Anubias Nana is on the rocks, the Blyxa Japonica is behind the rock on the right, the Java Ferns, Bolbitis, and Hygro. Pinn. is on the wood, the Rotala Butterfly is behind the wood, the compact Hygro is at the base of the wood, the HC is at the front right and middle, and the Hydrocoytle sp. Japan is in the front left.

Also, a bit of the H. Pinnatifida is transitioning to emersed:

Good job Bserve, you were about to shut down the tank and now it's turning Dutch. Did you go during Black Friday to use that 90 gift card?

My LFS doesn't do Black Friday but I'm going later today and getting some shrimp and probably more stem plants. Should I get CRS or RCS? And should I get more rotala butterfly or ludwigia tornado?

I'd never seen those fert bottles before. So i looked them up.

The manufacturer says 'Over 50% stronger than most competing products'.

How do you rate them?

This is my first time using it, but the lfs owner recommends it and uses it on his personal tanks and the show tanks. I suppose since it is stronger, I have to dose less, which means it lasts longer. I am using them with green Brighty step 2, but I may drop ADA and use this company, because their products get you more bang for the buck, but I'll have to see how it performs first.

Removed a rock, I think it opens up the tank. I may switch the rotala and downoi.

These shots with my new lens and camera are sweet!

Nice pics!

Ever considered adding a little pump for more flow? I don't think soil particles should be resting on the hydrocotyle like that.

My pump always falls off :P and I'm reasonably sure those are diatoms.
I may get a canister filter in the near future though.

It's coming along nicely! Those kind of look like diatoms, might be just dirt. Christmas present = canister filter?

Default High Tech ADA 60-P : Island Edges : Is It Turning Into A Dutch?

A canister sounds good but I'm Jewish so no Christmas presents for me and Hanukkah already ended... Maybe as a New Year's gift!

Canon 70D with 60mm macro

Got some CRS and new ferts. Really liking Brightwell Aquatics, better than ADA for the price.

Edit: there's some hair algae frowning on the wood on top, do I just 1-2 punch it?
