when you neglect planted tanks...


and forget to trim your plants, your daughter is likely to hold your plants up and reminding you of your failures...

this came from one of my 24/7 lighting tanks. its about a months worth of growth.

my lovely assistant had to prop her hand up on the handle of the refrigerator to hold them up... lol

i havent the slightest clue what im going to do with it. im leery of giving it away since i do absolutely nothing to prevent algae in the tank it came from, so the older leaves are heavily spotted in green. i guess that shouldnt bother anyone who knows what they are doing, i just like the plants i send out to be algae free for the most part. right now its sitting in a 40 breeder that is cycling. it will be there until i figure out what im going to do with it.

it actually did lower the water by about a centimeter. its a lot of plants... and the tank still looks overgrown lol.
