I don't mean to sound super-nerdy....but, it looks like a path leading into the Shire. The HC looks great. The log-bridge was an excellent choice.

The whole deal is looking great. Makes me want to run out and get another tank....I really need to stop looking at journal threads!

Default Cool!

You have a cool little tank! I know what you mean about being sad that no one replies, I started my first tank journal and it is now buried. Where did you get a tank of that dimension?

Este, the tank is from bigalsonline: http://www.marinedepot.com/Mr._Aqua_...FIAQRA-vi.html

Loving the tank Laura. One of the best long tank scape I've seen.

I think the tank is doing great. i really like the left side but i think you are covering up those nice stones with all those stems. Good job so far.

Well...this tank certainly had some tough times since the last update. I went on vacation and ever since then, I've had a terrible time getting the plants to grow again. I'm embarrassed to post a FTS because of the condition of a lot of the plants. The Staurogyne repens turned yellow and though I've fixed my ferts dosing, I can't get it green again. It's growing reeeeally slowly and not well at all. The Rotala mexicana 'goias' is on the far left (can't see it!) and stunted. I'm keeping up with everything and I can only hope that this problem will work itself out. Help! I'm open to suggestions.

In the meantime, the ferns and moss are doing great! Here's a picture of the middle 'bridge' part:

Beautiful tank!

I think it would look very good to fill in the left side of the tank with a combination of darkish-grey rocks and Anubias Nana or bacopa.

Love this tank. It's one of my favorite shapes and the log "bridge" is fantastic.

I'd been on the fence about making the 12 long my next tank. This convinced me.

Awww, thanks guys!!

I may take pictures of the deficiencies to see if anyone can figure out what is going on. I think, after doing some research, that I have low nitrates. I will test tonight and see, but I dosed a lot today to make up for a possible deficiency. I wish my plants would grow again. They're just completely halted.
