Thanks everyone. I was back and forth on the old look. I didn't like it too much because I almost considered removing the cabomba, I never realized how much of a mess it is. It appears to be dying and if it does, then I'm not going to replace it and probably put something else there.
My fish seem to LOVE the amazon swords, they are always swimming in it, around it, behind it. They keep on ripping up the unrooted grass too! How long does it usually take to develop a strong root system? I made a horrible mistake when I first put in the sword grass, I left the wool all around the roots and I don't think it made any progress whatsoever. Now that I removed the wool, the roots are almost non-existent and this stuff is very lightly sitting in the substrate.
I keep on looking into Co2, but confused where to start. If I had the money, I'd go ahead and make the leap for a pressurized system, but it's just too expensive right now! Any recommendations on a cheap, DIY kit?
