5G, 10G, 20G and 29G Plant Growth Tracking


Here is week number #3 of all the tanks (you can find the first two weeks in the pictures section). I have changed around the 5, 20 and the 29.

I added One 23W 6500K Bulb to both the 20 and the 29. Over head in the front. Flourencents are still in the back.

Here is the 5 gallon.

I took the Mondo Grass out and is now just the roots inside the tank.










Here is the 10 Gallon:

I cut the grass on the left and replanted it again. Now there are three stalks











This piece of Cabomba is really growing:


Here is the 20 Gallon:

I added a black background. I put one more Cabomba stalk in and moved plants. i also added more lighting, you can see how it makes the pictures come out better ;-)





Replanted these:


Moved these and replanted Red Ludwigia


Cool overhead shot:


Here is the 29 gallon tank

I moved the main log back. I added 2 real pieces of drift wood. I moved the swords to the front and separated one smaller sword to the left. I replanted the Corkscrew Vallis and the Cabomba. I also added more lighting which will hopefully help the plants grow.

Default New Update

So instead of posting ridiculously long posts with tons of images that you have to scroll through and load like crazy.....

I built a website to catalog all my images and keep track of my Tanks.

http://www.termato.net

This is a video of the 29 gallon with the new plants.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q2ypYIItlsY

I have been updating the personal online journal weekly so keep checking on it.

I will only really post videos on here now because I guess the giant picture posts scare people off.

:P

but here is the main tank right now just for easy viewing pleasure

Thanks Ken!

It is 90% Riccia with some Pennywort and Water Wisteria in there too. The Wisteria and Pennywort help keep the riccia in place and not move in the water current. I wrap them around the tops of the sticks. It works great!

Here is also an update on my other tanks, I haven't updated it on this thread yet in a long time:

My 20 gallon has since filled in and is now really beautiful. The growth has really stopped because of the amount of plants. I need some sort of C02 for tank and the 29 gallon. I have added a lot more plants. I put some Riccia in here too. That stuff just grows like wild fire. I added some new things recently, but I will get a newer picture up later.


Here is a VERY recent video of my 20 gallon taken 2 days ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTm7qDawdnI

I have been heavily trimming the 10 gallon because it just grows like crazy. Here it is as of like a week ago:


My betta tank is the stable place. I rescape it first before all the other tanks and it has really settled. The plants have halted so I am going to give them a trimming but here it is after the recape:


I don't have any pictures of it now, I added an invention of mine called "Drift-Glass" which I hand sculpted. I am going to start selling the glass so if you are interested and like the look just let me know. It will be available in different colors.

Here is a video so you can see the betta tank WITH the driftglass in it:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VGuAKSjmHE

If anyone is interested in purchasing some Drift-Glass please contact me. I will be making more soon and will be available for purchase.

I know everyone here is a fan of the planted natural tank, but what do you all think of this:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4VGuAKSjmHE

I made the glass, it's called Drift-Glass. It's a new product i'm getting going. If you like it let me know, I can make you some!

Here is a video of my 29 Gallon tank right now:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nV4zm6hEOxo

Here is a nice picture of the tank:


The two rams in the tank are doing great. They have colored up really well. i had to take the third one out and keep him by himself. He was getting bullied:


Tonight i'm going to take some more pictures of the new Drift-Glass I made. I did some more natural looking stuff so I am going to put it into this tank and see how it looks. Here is a preview of what the Drift-Glass I made looks like:
