Well I have came to the conclusion that I can't grow rotala macrandra. I have added it twice and both times it just starts to melt away. I don't know what I'm doing wrong or if it just doesn't like my water. All the other plants are doing great and growing like the weeds they are. I ordered 50 rummynose from my LFS and they came in today and by the time I got there to pick them up 20 were dead. Against my better judgement I took home the 30 that were left and during the 2 hours I was drip acclimating them another 14 died and here we are 4 hours after adding them to the tank and 2 are all thats still alive. This must have been a bad batch and will be going back tomorrow to get my money back or have him order me some more. Hopefully the next batch comes in looking better. I have been checking some other sources and may end up ordering some online. Still trying to decide what plant to put in place of the rotala macrandra. Really wanting a redish colored plant and I'm debating between Ludwigia sp. Patanal, Pogostemon stellatus, or Ludwigia sp. red.

The tank is looking great! I hope to have something half that nice here soon when I set up my 75. Question on your hardscape. Those bigger rocks you have in there, are those just big lava rock?

The tank looks awesome. I love the look of the blue bulbs, and the large school of roselines and rummy nose. Something to aspire to, it makes me reconsider not using co2.

Yes that is lava rock. I have 4 huge boulders that were in my back yard that were about 150lbs. each and after a hammer and chisel that is what I came up with. It was interesting to find pieces of metal and nails that were picked up by the flowing lava at one point that were inside these huge boulders.

Thank you. I have always used blue bulbs in combination with other bulbs in my tanks as it makes the colors of the fish really come out. I'm hoping to get my rummy school back up to where it used to be at about 50-60.

Thank you. That is what I was going for this time. I have never really tried to scape a tank before. I'm very happy with the hardscape, now just need to see how the planting will turn out. Trying my hardest to not let the collectoritis set back in and only stick with a few species of plants which is hard when you only have one tank but after years of trying almost every plant out there I gained experience in what I like and what plants like me.

This is one of my favorite tank & stands on the site. I'm looking forward to seeing it grow in.

It's a curious thing that with bouts of collectoritis we don't see many Dutch aquascapes.

Personnaly, I I had a single sp. strain of the virus. Which lead to 4 tanks of potted crypts at the peak of the affliction.

It is a great stand. Every time I see it I think about copying it. Hardscape is great just needs the plants to finish filling in. Great design.

Thank you for the kind words. And yes this collectoritis is a hard disease to rid ones self of.

Thanks. I just added some Ludwigia sp. cuba, Rotala sp. nanjenshan, Rotala mexicana Araguaia, Pogostemon stellatus, Myriopyllum mattogrossense, and Hydrocotyle sp. Japan. Hopefully I can get the right side to fill in more to what I have in mind.

Nice work, Ua Hua! It will look fantastic once it's filled in, without a doubt!

Sorry....where did you get the new regulator from, out of curiosity? GLA?

+1 to Frank.....the stand and the "enclosure" are truly a highlight of the tank. It really adds to the set up and it looks terrific!
