One of Jeff's 75 "GoodBye Stems!" Small Update Last Page


Yep, here's a pic of my 75. I took about 15 and none of them are worth a darn so I went with the least of the worst and decided to post it anyway. Yeah, I know, the anubias has gotten too big for where it is and the rotala just had another haircut . It seems my pictures turn out rather two dimensional and all perspective of depth in the tank is lost.

Your tank is so....organized. It looks great!

I couldn't figure out what that plant was on the right. Then I enlarged the picture and saw a GIANT anubias! That thing is huge! Is that just a normal barteri?

Organized, lol. Thanks, I think . I guess my autistic tendencies show in the tank, lol. I'm not sure what sort of anubias it is. I've had it for years and trimmed the rhizome countless times. What can I say, it's happy. It also needs to move but it's huge and the idea of moving seems like a big pain.

I think it looks great man. You've done an awesome job with the depth in my eyes.

Looks like that 'repens' is on steroids! Its very easily taking the cake as my favorite ground cover.

I'm loving it at the moment. It's well rooted and doesn't end up all over the tank for years after a trim like HC or riccia.

"organized" was definitely a compliment I love how you've created distinct textures in the tank by trimming each species to a different height than the others. I don't know why I've never thought of that...

Looks fantastic Jeff!

My only critique is all the reds are clumped together.

Amazing, gorgeous, gah. My jaw dropped! The stems seem so close together, how do you keep them so lush? Last time I had a mountain of R. rotundifolia, it ended up melting where it got no light. This tank is amazing!
