Everything is going good. S.Repens growing well. Added some A.Reineckii. Tank is filling in nicely. still looking for just the right piece or pieces of wood to finish it off.

It looks really nice. Love your curtain of stems there. Can't believe you got enough growth to cover the back of the entire 125 without co2!

Looks really good! I think with more of a thicker background and middle ground it should look awesome!
good luck...

The tanks community hasn't grown much. Last added was a chocolate BN.

as of now the list looks like this:
1-GBR male
4-Bolivian (males I think)
4-Phantom tetras all males (looking to get a dozen females)
4-peppered corys
2-bronze corys
12-14- cherry barbs (2 males 12 females)

As for the stem growth, it's been a trim and replant thing. I only have basically 2 stem types in there and both are easy to work with. I wish my cabomba would have done better as it made a good contrast with leaf shapes. The S.Repens has done exceptionally well, as has the A.Reineckii. My crypta are spreading slow but steady.

I got wood!!!!!!!!! I also trimmed and replanted, added 3 pearl gouramis. In addition to the work on the 125g, I setup a new 75g in the kitchen as sort of a room divider. It's going to be a challenge to come up with a pleasing scape viewable from three sides.

peninsula esk scapes are fairly easy to do and make it great at viewing from three angles!

Still chugging along. I need to fill in the background with some more stems. Probably should start dosing some ferts, my rotala hasn't been growing as fast or as full since trimming. This tank over the summer is going to get pushed back into the wall behind it. Well at least that is the plan.
