Beautiful tank. Lots of plant variety and textures. What kind of equipment are you using?

Now that I see the straight on picture I realize that it's a 46 gal BOW FRONT not a 46 gal BEST FRIEND! Ha Ha. I guess that makes more sense!

How do you count 5 bps? I can't count faster than 3 bps.

Very pretty tank too.

Pretty much if anyone says they have a 46 gallon odds are its a bow front, its a unique size. As for the bps I get to the three bps and just use eye judgment on the speed the bubbles...I may be off a few but it would be on the + side.

So I added a 26 watt cfl flood light to help the Ludwigia sp. along, as u can see it caused my rotala rotundifolia to grow horizontal. It now sits on the ruben and stargrass. Look at difference on the hc, the cfl flood lights work very well in a deep tank.

Ludwigia sp. "Red" is growing slow, it needs to hurry so I can replant stems.

Nice tank! Everything looks really healthy.
The red plant is actually Ludwigia palustris 'red'/Ludwigia 'hybrid', not Ludwigia repens 'rubin'. It was mislabeled by a seller a while back.

Thanks for the info, I didn't even think to double check it.

Big trim on the right side, pulled out all my Watersprite and disposed of it. Trimmed all of my Ludwigia Colorata in half and moved the Telanthera Rosefolia to the back right.
