The volcano is starting to erupt!

The ludwigia red is starting to peak out from behind the mountain. The rotala macranda is growing nicely too. I just got some ludwigia sp. Atlantis too but only 3 stems so we'll see how it grows. I moved the hygro to the left since it stopped being red and turned a very bright green > The rotala magenta has all died off too. The ludwigia sp. tornado is doing great, I really love this plant. Wish I had more space for it since it's pretty big.

I also added some e. hydropiper that I got from an sfbaaps member, it's been a few days and hasn't died yet!


The HC is growing nicely, it's creeping along the rocks.


And some misc. shrimp shots

it would be cool if slowly over time you added some red stem plants im the hc slowly more and more down the mountain. and add just a little bit over the course of a week. take progression pics, and it will look like lava flowing down the mountain!

haha thats an awesome idea orchidman, wish there was red HC, that'd be sweet.

Went away for a week for vacation and came back to some insane growth, and some algae too. I added 24 ember tetras too. Fitting for a volcano themed tank.



Major trim, removed all the hygro because I didn't like the way it looked.


Added some ludwigia brevipes? I think, that's what it was labeled as but I think this was the mystery ludwigia they had at AFA


Ludwigia tornado, love this plant

Wow. Look fantastic. No complaints from me on the hardscape or the planting. Very jealous lol.

What are you using for your backlight? I made a background for my 20L which I am not using around an old fixture which was too much light, plus it is limited to 3 bulb colors, 2 not so noticeable with the lights on (coralife t5no 30in fixture, nobody else makes the bulbs). I get algae on the back glass on past setups and it just isn't what I want. Would love to know more info as I want to do another back lit tank again, may get an artist friend to do some realistic clouds and whatnot.

Kiran, thanks man!

Talontsiawd, I'm using an ikea dioder strip light, it was 40 bucks. They're not so bright as to grow algae, and in fact, if I didn't have that background on the tank, they'd be completely outshined by the main tank lights. They're nice, they rotate through a bunch of diff colors and does it smoothly too, good mood lighting when the main lights are off.

Green_Flash, I dose EI ferts, I mixed up my own solution that doses 25ml a day of macros and micros (these are dosed via an autodoser daily at different time intervals)

The little acrylic thing is my rock stand! haha I bought it at a store going out of business sale for a dollar. Didn't know what to do with it so it's holding a rock haha

2 thumbs up.
you really fit the tank to the theme. reminds me of costa rica. volcanoes covered in jungles.

how are you liking the embers? are they active, how do they school, are they shy, etc.
im thinking of getting some.

i agree with you on the hygro, looks kinda out of place.
