not yet, I was going to use it in the 10gallon but decided to go with the other huge dw. Im trying to decide if I want to tear down my 20g and rescape it. If I do go through with it, I will be using it in there

Update time!

Really loving this tree! Fissidens have been attached and are growing great, really love it, it actually looks like they are sprouting from the wood.



This tank is maturing beautifully and all the plants are doing great, very happy about it.


Riparium plants looks like they are doing great and are growing.



Some of the UG that I put in this tank is melting but I think its because I had dipped them in too strong of a copper solution to kill snails before I put it into the tank...hope most of it will survive and bounce back though. Also moved over my black/white shrimp (bumblebee shrimp) into the tank. Did not realize how many babies I had! They are all doing well and transitioned ok. Females are also still berried so that a good sign I think.


This 20g will probably get rescaped soon but right now im just to busy/lazy to rescape another tank...I was leaning towards a dutch scape but do not think the tanks "deep" enough to create a dutch scape that I would like. Now im thinking either a true iwagumi scape or a rocky mountain scape. What do you guys think?

Been a looong time since ive updated, hanvt really had time to care for all of my tanks lately to be honest....Im actually surprised how well most of the tanks are doing without any care besides feeding the fish. All my tanks need a good trim/I need to start dosing ferts again as im starting to see bad deficiency in a few of the tanks and I need to clean my filters soon....so much work. Heres two photos of my favorite tanks at the moment!

There is actually a clear crystal film in the back or else youd also be able to see all the tubes and equipment in the back, ive always been to lazy to take the equipment out of the tanks before taking pics so the inlet/outlet tubes are still visible in the tank. The crystal film background looks real nice if I put a light in the back as it disperses it well and give a beautiful sunset/sunrise effect.

Been a while since an update, finally trimmed my tanks and sold some cuttings! lol heres an update of a few of the tanks.

This tanks still one of my favorite even with the algea you see, took this photo after I nuked the tank with some excell to kill off the algea.



I had not trimmed the moss in this tank in months and the moss pretty much completely covered the tank for months and I finally decided to clean things up and everythings recovering nicely!



Need to clean the glass on this tank a little, I actaually havnt touched this tank since I set it up besides water changes and its been easy as hell to take care of so im glad.



Riparium plants are doing great, will probably need to trimm them soon...
