Update 12-5-09

Update on 2nd page

Well I replanted my 46 gal bow front because I was having major algae problems. Some of the plants still need to bounce back from the problems but I believe they will do alright but here are a few pictures. More to come soon.

AGREED ! Give us a whole tank photo please.

Also, it's possible that the photo is deceiving, but your baby tears looks more like pearlgrass to me.

Hemianthus micranthumbrosum - "Baby tears"


Hemianthus micranthemoides - "Pearlgrass"

That's definitely a lot a pearling. Enjoy it! Mine seems to come and go. Couldn't have anything to do with my constant tweaking, could it ?

Well I moved about 3 weeks ago and all the plants need to make a rebound. Going to add some more plants this weekend. The good thing about moving is the PH is 6.5 right out of the tap. So had to sell the African Cichlids.
I was also wondering what is a good plant for foreground cover?
I also need to add some plant tabs in the substrate any idea's on what I may add?

Yeah, give us a new photo once things settle in. From the looks of that stem plant up front, it needs to find its feet . And is that giant stem bacopa? If so, that is the longest stem I've ever seen

Boy that Hygro likes your tank.
