125g Update: Impending doom, filled after emersed setup.

Hey guys, you may remember my other thread here:


Well a couple days ago I filled it up. Check out how much the glosso grew!


3 Months later

I took my plant trimming scissors and trimmed it down to about 3 inches for now.

I am still using my FX5 on my 55g that is housing my fishies, so I hooked up this pump temporarily to keep the CO2 flowing until I move over the FX5.

The micro sword grew perfect!

This is my custom outlet I built. It is sharkbite flex piping with small holes drilled every half inch that blow out at a 45 degree angle towards the front.
It goes about 3/4 the way across the back of the tank.

Some stem plants, I forget the name. They look pathetic because they have been in my puffers tank kinda half-assed planted for a couple months.

More updates coming soon! I am going to be working on the divider to go between the micro sword and the glosso here pretty soon.
