Nice tank. Are those the very inexpensive shop lights I am also using? Yours are mounted much more tastefully than mine.

Thanks. Yep, those are just the cheapo shop lights from Lowes/Depot with 23watt CFLs in them.

Seriously beautiful tank.

I read through your journal. You have a lot of thoughtful work in that tank.

Nice job. How do you like your cholla wood? I've heard that it breaks down after a while. Is that true?

It is a bit soft but I don't move it to often for the fact that it does break down. I've had it for months now and it at least is still. Holding up. Overall I like the look. Good for my shrimp too

Not Aokashi, but the one with the round leaves is a Red Root Floater (Phyllanthus fluitans) and the little ones are Azolla (maybe caroliniana). A word of caution about the Azolla - it's got a ridiculous growth speed and will require constant reduction in order to prevent it from blanketing the surface and blocking all of the light.

On a side note, it actually fixes nitrogen so it's also used as a fertilizing agent (eg. rice).
