funny that you mention co2 jimmy. the 75 is going to have a pressurized co2 setup. i REALLY want to set up an amano inspired tank and the 75 is going to be it.

the 60g is running diy co2. it has (5) 2 litre bottles connected to (2) 20oz gatorade bottles used as bubble counters and then they feed into the 2 powerheads. i am still playing with formulas, but right now i get about 3 weeks from my bottles.

Thanks dan. It's coming along nicely. I'm hoping that downoi starts sending out runners soon. I want to fill that section with downoi and i need to find another plant to fill the section second from left. I may just have the downoi fill up the front. Depends on what i can come across. And i still think i need some more petite on the driftwood.

trimmed the 60 tonight. added a few plants. added some moss. next water change, i'll add the anubias i got from steve. i also took out the crypts i had in there. i pulled the nurii up a bit and the roots were melting, so i tossed it into the 125. the hudoroi's growth stalled out, so i put it into my 20L yellow tank.\

my 20L yelllow shrimp tank. added a whole bunch of microsword from dan. the cyperus helferi i got from joe is going into the 60 on the next water change.

took about 2 hours to trim off a bunch of leaves with bba on them, and then replant to build this little section of staurgyne repens

now i have to fill this hole. i'm thinking about filling it with the blyxa. any thoughts?

pics do not do this tanks justice. it's gonna be hard to wait a few weeks and not tinker with anything until this fills in.

It's looking real good Bill.

I just converted my 38gal into 2 for the new arrival. That stratum is dirty! It's been 24 hours and still pretty messy (I may need to run a HOB to clear it up).
