Wow! Don't know how I missed this thread.

Beautifully presented healthy looking tank, and what I would consider a very fast, very successful start!

Nice work. Keep up with the journal and the pictures. Subscribed.

Really nice looking tank man! I'm quite envious of your scape. I'm just getting started with plants and made the step up to a better light to try to grow a carpet with micro swords. I'm looking for a Red Midground Plant that will do well without CO≤. What is the red plant in the center? I think that might be what I'm looking for. As long as it will grow without CO≤ and will grow with Medium light.

.....Keep It Simple Stupid.....

Ludwigia red, it might not be as vibrant under medium light, but will definitely be red.

The tank looks great! Yet another example that proves it is more about the person than the equipment. My suggestion would be to mount the power strip inside the stand and off the floor. Seems like a disaster waiting to happen.

We've all got one somewhere! At least it's not in the tank! Mine's in a drawer with an old spare air pump, some plant weights and an unopened pack of air stones.

Hey sohankpatel,

How's your Rotala Macarandra Type IV doing? I saw a thread of yours attempting to troubleshoot it, but I think it's been left hanging. I'd really appreciate an update as I seem to be going through similar difficulties.

thanks!
