Back From the deaD! lol.

Just to update. Setup is the same equipment wise. The Eclipse hood has held up well for the past three years this has been setup. No deformation of the hood from the heat of the bulb too if anyone doing this had any worries about heat buildup. Only thing that i have needed to replace is the splash guard since i let the hood drop once and it cracked. I stopped using co2 and ferts and have just stuck to monthly water changes.

Plants i currently have are Pearlgrass, taiwan moss, bacoba C., african fern, and rotala R. in basically the same scape after removing the small chunk of wood from the right corner. I'll get some pics up in a bit.

Very low maintenance, and most importantly no algae problems. Same fish and shrimp from the last time too.

lol, do you mean for plants? I usually end up going to 6 ave in SF (don't recommend their fish). But if you need good advice i would talk to Justin at Oceans Aquarium (also in SF). Good guy and he can get his hands on some pretty rare stuff if your looking for something special.

Well if you ever make your way to SF you should check out Oceans Aquarium and Aqua forest if your looking for plants. Where do you go in the south bay?
I've never really ventured for aquarium stores in that area.


Rough undate pics off a friends cell phone. I haven't really touched anything and just let things grow the way they want to. I just thin out sections when they get to out of control. No co2 or ferts for more then a year now i think.

Just thinned it out.... still need to trim down the pearlweed. Kinda messy but I'm gonna work on it when i have some free time next month.

It's doing fine. Although I don't know the exact ID, it's either Indica, Rotun., or Colorata. Here's a pic from July 3:

And how did you know I had some? Looked at my 10 gal journal?
