Where are you getting all your plants and stuff? Online? or did you find somewhere local? The closest place that i know of to noblesville (being that i live in Fishers when i'm not at school) is the Reef, and that's a good solid drive. By the way, it looks awesome!

Most of these plants have come from my farm tanks that have nothing but mud, sand, & lights. i originally bought most of them on the for sale adds on this site & APC, though some did come from the reef. I believe they get plants about every other thursday (from RMC i think) & if you get there before the weekends over you can get them before they start going downhill. Its not to far maybe 25 minutes from me.

Also i convinced Uncle Bill's in Fishers to set up a planted discus tank, so far they havent gotten much, don't really expect them to. theyre more geared towards reefers.

when you are back at home PM me & i'll hook you up with some clippings.

Your pal,
Thanks! i actually traded the larger one in and kept the smaller one. though within the two weeks its been in this tank the new leaves are broader than theyve ever been.

i tried them both behind the wood and it was just too much.

so.....

my GDA film on the glass has disappeared and i now see small clusters of GSA. nitrates.

i also have some brown fuzzy algae growing on the tops of my wood, which turns white the next day after squirting with Excel. just a temporary fix. hope its just new tank syndrome and not the wood being an algae magnet.

i trimmed the cuban ludwigia. it had already reached the surface and started to bend over. If i had known it was going to grow so fast i would have planted it behind the hygro bihar & hygro corymbosa 'willow'

I recieved some more plants today to fill in a few of the last bare spots that are not foreground. R. Colorata & R. sp. 'Pink'. also some taiwan moss & flame moss i am going to try on the wood. I have Xmas moss coming too. This tank is turning into a collectoris tank. I'm sure not all of them will do well and ill end up pitching some. Mermaid weed has fallen apart but does well in my other tanks.

My problem is i have no mid ground.

The tank looks very clean. wish my 90 had white sand in it and i wish i didn't bring home every plant i think is cool. I have a bad problem of doing that. You have a lot of different plants but it doesn't look cluttered in the slightest bit.

Thanks. i have a collectoris problem too. but i have been narrowing this tank down to a limited amount of species. My smaller tanks are where all the leftovers go.

I used to prefer black substrates but now i really dont like them at all.

In other news i am picking up another 20# co2 tank today. I told the wife its a backup for this aquarium but i am already dreaming of hooking it up to one of the other aquariums.
