naw, he was there long before any plants. lol He might uproot something new once in a while, but once something is established not really. He's probably 15 years old or more. I can't remember exactly when I got him.

Beautiful!! Is that a picture background that you somehow found matching hardscape with?! It's hard to tell in the pic, but beautiful!

Yeah that's a background. Wished I would've just painted it black now. But I tried to match it.

My 150g low tech (at least in terms of no CO2 and no fancy substrate). Still in the early phases of growth.

Just started my 125G Potomac River Sunfish/Shiners tank planted with Vallisneria americana, substrate is Safe T Sorb. Planted my Val last night, still waiting on my Finnex Ray2's, so just using my two 36" T8's and a 48" dual T8. Going to let the plants root firmly then add the fish.

I wish I could find some of my pics from when my 135gal was low tech and looking great (before the BBA & nutrient deficiencies). I redid the tank this past Mar-Apr and converted into high tech. They both have their place and I commend those on this thread as they are beautifully done !

Right now it is 2*54w T5HO and 1 48" T8 grow bulb for 10 hours a day. When it fills in a little more I'll turn on the third T5HO and stop using the T8
