Well the "Downoi" is taking off pretty good. Have heard a lot of mixed things about it not growing well in low tech tanks, but so far so good.

I think I like the 2nd scape best, but glad to see the tank going well for you!

Thanks! I was unsure how it would do in a low tech tank but seems to be doing really good.

It's pretty cool you're getting such healthy growth and low tech. My elodea isn't doing so well but everything else is. Also found out I have some fry.

Well it has been quite some time since I have updated my journal but my wife and I finally bought a house this spring and have been pretty preoccupied with painting and all that fun stuff. Anyways, I just moved over my little 10 gallon last night over to the new house and did a little trimming. My Pogostemon helferi is kicking some butt. It looks really good and I have been getting some good growth over the months.

Well after seeing to many snails I decided it was time for a massive cleaning and rescape. Still have some plants like java ferns and some anubias nana in a bucket to add yet. Removed all my rocks and just going all plants until I get my 40b set up and have more room. To add driftwood or some stones.

Had some extra black sand so it was time for a rescape and be part of the whole cherry shrimp craze. Went with a Downoi carpet with a stone. I had some crypt lutea that I stuck behind the stone and looks really nice. Not sure what kind of stone it is but I thought it looked nice. I have some java moss on the rocks to the left I am waiting to grow and will eventually attach to the standing rock.
