30g bowfront aquarium (56K warning)
Well, I originally set up my planted tank in 2002, but after the birth of our two children, they took priority so my tank got a bit neglected. Anyhow, since the 7th or so of December, I decided to completely rescape my tank. I ripped out the large amount of java fern, anubias (leaves coated in nasty black/red algae), and crypt. Then, I got a case of 'collectoritis' and visited the local fish store to get a bunch of new plants over the past few weeks: Eleocharis montevidensis, Echinodorus tenellus, Rotala indica, Tonina fluvitalis, Nymphaea lotus, some kind of moss, Bacopa caroliniana, Cardamine lyrata, Hemianthus micranthemoides, Blyxa japonica, Hygrophila polysperma 'Rosanervig', Alternanthera reineckii?, Hygrophila polysperma 'Ceylon'?, Rotala sp. 'Nanjenshan'.
It's still pretty sparse, but the plants are growing in quickly. I'm looking forward to the hairgrass in the background to grow in and hide some of the hardware. As well, the pygmy chain sword in the foreground should make a nice carpet once it fills in.
I also purchased a large piece of iron wood, and place a large wad of moss on it. I think that the driftwood looks a bit over bearing... I may try to push it into a corner.
Specs: 30g tank, 4 aqualights (28Wx4), pressurized CO2 injection, daily PMDD (0.5 mL), daily Flourish Excel (5 mL), Flourish phosphate as needed. Inhabitants: 2 angel fish, 15 white cloud montain minnows, 2 corys, 6 nerite snails.
