I totally understand you! And that's what I don't want, an ugly tank in just afraid that if I tear it down, I'm going to regret it. Because I remember when setting it up how excited I was and stuff. and I don't want to just waste the cycle.

I think I've decided though. I think I'll tear it down. Then keep the stuff so I can set it up whenever I want to. But also I have no money to set it up planted the way I'd like. So maybe I'll swap it out for my 10g.

well if you're going to have the tank just sitting there why not just keep the filter going. It's not like it's going to hurt anything. Perhaps when you get some money this summer and can start improving it more you'll find that passion you initially felt.

not really, lol! things have been pretty stagnant growing a little bit and algae is mostly being kept off. i need more ferts, but i have no money, so im kind of stuck. the shrimp are healthy one died randomly, but the rest are doing great, i found another thats berried and a few more addled and i think one of the females hatched hers.

oh, and im selling some plants in the swap and shop if anyone is interested! i have Persicaria 'kawagoneum', glosso, and lysmachia nnumuralia (creeping jenny). the B. lanigera is already sold out.

UGLY PICTURES!!

too lazy to take any good shrimp pictures. but they are breeding like rabbits and seem to be the only thing going good about now!

to be honest, im losing interest in this tank. i kind of want to tear it down and go low tech. but then i still want to try and get it back to where i had it before the co2 mishap. but then i remember, im broke

i threw 2 dwarf red lilies in there because they sprouted in the bottom of my emersed tank. they probably will not stay in this tank.

Nice shots Bob. That glosso went nuts for you too, I see.

That first moss looks like star moss to me, but I am not certain.
