UPDATE: Completely redid this tank. Changes in post 7 - https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...69&postcount=7
I started this tank back in August. It was my first real planted tank. I am still getting the hang of things. This tank is pretty crazy cause all along it has been trial and error...just stick it in there and see if it grows!

And here it is today:
I'm going to try to complete the stats for this tank, but I know that I have forgotten what some of the stems are. The most recent addition was some Leopard val that I hope will fill in the back right corner.
This tank is in need of CO2 I think. I have a BBA problem on the driftwood that is not going away. There is CO2 in its near future!
