well here are the updated pictures.
as you can see there is some growth in the HC. when i first planted it there were distinct rows but now you can see that the HC has blended together in some areas. This is deffinitely faster growth than my previous attempts with starting the HC immersed. I would suggest this to anyone who wants to start a HC carpet and has the strength to fight the urge to flood the tank.LOL

I always thought that growing HC emersed was fun. You can see results almost every day.

Looks great.

Supposedly Marine depot successfully ripped off GLA's product... Sucks for Orlando . According to the Green Leaf Aquariums thread, they will be receiving a new line of tanks some time.

According to what I've always heard and read, HC grows in more quickly dry. Of course, aquaria are more fun with water in them.

Also, this tank should look great once the carpet grows in. The dimensions are definitely pretty cool, and I like the job you did with the rocks. I'm looking forward to watching everything grow.
