36x18x18 Starphire Rimless

This is a snap pic of the tank 20 minutes after filling it up.

Plant list:
_______________
Needle Leaf Java Fern
Dwarf Hair Grass
Monosolenium tenerum
Moss, I have 4 types to use and I need to figure out which...
Bolbitis

I still have tons of work to do and with all of these slow growers this tank will take a long time to fill in nicely. But, I think it will look good in due time..





Picture of the light rail I built last month..

I love this...mostly because it looks eerily similar to my 75. Your wood is much nicer, though. Also eerie because I'm adding bolbitis to my left side. Ha

Thanks guys

This tank has nothing but slow growers. Im very interested in working with Monosolenium tenerum. I think when all the moss fills in and all the other plants you cant see in the crummy picture, I will take a better photo.
Man, I stink at taking pictures

Hey I think the photo is great. Monosolenium tenerum seems like an interesting plant I would like to grow. Oh, and slow growers is the way to go!

Still have tanks in the works. There is a ton of legal mumbo jumbo we are finalizing. As well as getting logistics taken care of

I have the exact same size tank. with needle leaf, petites, fizzidens, bolbitis, and soon rotalas. Great plants!

your tank looks great, although I'd like to see a full tank shot without the shaddowed borders.

ps...i need 2 brass check valves.

gotcha...soon i'll have pics of mine up so we can drool over each other's. although...yours looks more drool-worthy. I have one small critique...i think you need just a wee bit more fern on the left...

beautiful start, Orlando...I agree with rountrees about adding a bit more NL on the left, but it's a fast enough grower (for me at least) that it should be looking spot on in a matter of just a few months. Very impressive....

Oh yeah....looking forward to those rimless you'll be selling soon.

My NL is about the size of a basketball now...I think it's time I break it down and start selling some of it. NL grows surprisingly fast, IMO. I'm thinking some more fern is going to really look nice. Get some pics up of the new addition when you get a chance.
