thanks btm

it doesnt feel quick, i have been battling bga and rhizoclonium, but i seem to be getting on top of it...

i had most of the plants from my last setup, but they took a bit of a knock, so i have just been letting them grow and propagate, it is time for a decent trim soon...

thanks chonzilla!

new pics...

things are growing in nicely after the trim, but it is looking like it is time for a trim again

i added some lobelia, and got some eustris stellata

i joined a couple of dutch forums, and they were absolutely horrified with the rocks, but i also had some positive comments so for now they are still staying. i have some new plants as well, but they are still tiny, if i can grow them and propogate them, i might use them in place of the rocks...

front - click for larger:



this is what the stellatus looked like when i got it - pretty sickly



this is what it looks like now - hopefully it is going to grow from strength to strength - i hope it makes the transition from emmersed to immersed ok



i have some glosso, hc and micranthum umbrosum floating



tiny cutting of rotala wallichii

Wow. I love it. Sorry to hear about your other tank leaking like that, but it looks like you recovered very nicely. I really like how you put a bunch of pictures in sequence like that. It really shows off that rapid growth of yours. I'm very impressed with the tank! Also, please keep the rocks. I think that they really make this tank!

Beautiful tank. I have not much else to add...

I imagine it is a lot of work to keep fast growers in shape like that. But the result is worth it.

Great job ! Very nice composition. I like that you added the rocks to the plants, but it looks like they have been there forever. It keeps changing just a bit, but maintains the same look.
