Comments 02/28/2006 I'm currently replacing the fast growing stem plants with the final plant scheme (I think). I hate the way it looks right now, but I had to make the change at some point, and wait for the grow-in. BTW, they aren't sail boats. It's my son's contribution. Ernie in a speed boat, and Elmo in a sub. ;) 03/21/2006 - removed the wisteria, and rotalla. Stocking with more vals, and swords. 04/21/2006 - Hope to add driftwood this weekend. :) Major rescape, added driftwood, removed Jungle Vals and Pygmy chain sword, Re-spaced swords 07/31/2006 OK, had some major issues in my tank. Major fish die offs, and algea outbreaks due to not having the time to correctly maintain the tank. Since then, I've cut the amount of light in half, and switched dome things along. I hope to get some new pics up. The tank is currently doing well. Plants are growing, not as fast, but well. 11/16/2007 OK, big changes dosing PPS-pro, light on 7 hours total 6 of which are full strength 4 X 96. Having some residual BBA issues that I am killing with H2O2!!!!
