Great work Ken. I have been lucky enough to get two different types of plants from you and I will have no excuses for not having one like yours if im not careful. Very beautiful tank.

Beautiful tank...heck, it looked great right when you started it! It's hard to believe that this was your first real planted tank. I hope I can get mine looking as good as yours!

I got around to it- just in a different thread, right?

Just call me slow!

I sort of miss all the petrified wood and sunset hygro carpet you had going in one of this tank's incarnations, but this 'scape is definitely gorgeous too!

Hi Ken, so i literally spent my entire day of work from 9am-4:34pm EST, reading this entire post! I have to tell you that you have some of the best tanks i have seen. This is actually perfect for me because i just took apart my 55gallon tank and was in need of major help. So here is what i have atm:

1. 55gallon tank
2. Fluval FX5
3. 2 inch of Eco Complete substrate
4. DIY CO2
5. SolarMax 2x54 watt T5HO (10,000k and do not have another bulb)

I would like to get a CO2 system like yours (Tank and w/e else i need)
Do not know if i need to upgrade the lighting but will do so if needed.

I had a question about that mineral soil thing you did. First of all can you give me the link of the site you got it from? So after you do that soil mix, do you still need to add ferts?
