Took some new pictures of my planted 55 today! Enjoy them!




Time for a little kiss.


I moved the micranthemum umbrosum to hopefully help increase it's growth!

I love those crypts. WOW

I mentioned that before to you. Your tank and overall theme looks kind of yellowish.
Is it just me ?

Nope not you. I currently have 2 6500 K bulbs and 2 5000 K bulbs in my hood which give it kind of a yellow color. However I found the these colors work the best in my tank. It looks a tiny bit yellowy but my plants seem to really like it.

Kyle, could you provide a closeup of the umbrosum, please? The reason I ask is because from a distance it looks suspiciously like pearl weed, Hemianthus micranthemoides, which is mistakenly pictured on the Florida Driftwood site for M. umbrosum. I had asked you a question about this in the Vendor Reviews section, but I don't think you saw it. At least I hope you didn't, because otherwise it would mean you were ignoring me. :sad:

Much thanks,

2la

Yeah, that's definitely H. micranthemoides as opposed to M. umbrosum. Just wanted to check before I placed an order with Florida Driftwood. I realize they have great service and all, but I have a thing for online vendors who can't properly identify the plants that they're selling. Just ignore me...:hehe:

Hey KyleT, Just wanted to bump this thread in hopes of maybe seeing some of your own work. I figure as the creator of this great and awesome site you would have a few journals of your own but I've only found this one and a few others. I like Vintage threads lol.

My 120 Gallon Shrimp Tank Rebuild finally started!!
