I tried playing with all the options on my camera and uit just isnt happening. i dont have enough settings or options to do what i really want to with it.
The main reason the sunset hygro looks like it does is cause of two things. number 1 my SAE's were playing in it which tore it up, plus my ramshorn snails were eating pieces of it. so thats why its like that.
PLant selection is basic yes, i dont have many options around here. i know it needs a foreground lawn badly, just deciding on what to use, althought im thinking hair grass or dwarf sag as the best.
The tank is not new by any means. i have had it up and running for close to 8 years now. the lighting and such has been going for a few years as well, this is just the first time i am having good sucess with plants. i have older pictures i can show off as well.
Lotus from back in the day
Lilly pads....which later had a white flower bloom
All kinds of goodies
heres another i like
So it has seen its fair share of plants. why it doesnt look how it used to today?
The lillies blocked out so much light everything started to die plus i had the tank nearly taken over by java moss which starved out alot of plants. never again will i have that stuff.
