Tank is looking great.

Very nicely presented, and I really like the layout.

Looks like a great home for those healthy looking Bows!

Thanks. Things are growing nicely except for the hair grass, its just sitting there lol. I got a plant I have not seen before, kind of neat its pogostemon stellatus 'octopus' It grows very similar to stellatus, but stays green, and the leaves are longer and narrower. I am trying to get a few more stems of it to fill in. Its just to the right of the normal stellatus. I want something on the very far right, just not sure what yet. The Buce are starting to fill in. The black centipede is really neat looking, almost black leaves. The deep blue is getting some nice bluish metallic color to the leaves. Nice little plants.

Been a while since I last updated. Got busy with cycling this summer.

Tank is doing VERY well. Algae is now down to almost nil. The BGA outbreak I fought with all summer finally gave about a month ago. Since then, only a little green dust algae on the glass each week. The plants are finally growing well. I only have 1 that is not doing soo great, not sure what is going on with it. I added a few more plants, a few swords (I love my hadi red pearl!!!) And some species of bacopa that gets a very nice pink color on the leaves. The bows are doing fine. I did loose a herbertaxelrodi to a fungus infection that I treated the whole tank for. But the others are doing great. I am very happy with the rubrivittata, they are stunners. deep blue glow. If I get a Christmas bonus I have my eye on some wanamensis that can be traced back to Gary Lange, we will see if I can get ahold of them though.

Anywhoo, here are a few updated pictures. I upgraded my phone, and man its taking some incredible pictures (Pixel 3XL)

Nice tank and the fish photos are great! Good to hear the BBA as been reduced substantially.

Hello old friend 🙂

Tank is looking great! Glad to see that you are still enjoying the hobby. We settled into a new home a couple years ago and I decided to jump back in...the new tank is up and running.

Look forward to following your build.

Hiya all . I am still around, just have been busy again this summer with cycling.

The tank is in a poor state at the moment. I tried a new fert. strat., and well... umm..... I lost about half the plants before I could correct it. I just received a delivery of new plants, so that should be back on track here shortly.

I also have been fighting something in the tank. It has taken out about half my bows. It is presenting as columnaris, but it is slower moving, and attacking mostly the mouths of the bows. I just recently think I might have won the battle, I will see over the next couple months.

Its been a trying time for the tank, but I will get it all back in order as fast as I can. The remaining bows seem to be happy and healthy, they are laying eggs all over the tank, which I always take as a good sign. My plan over the winter is to get the stock back up on the bows, and get some other species from the oceanic area of the world in the tank as well.

No pictures at the moment, I am a bit embarrassed at the state of the tank. More to come at some point lol. The winter is going to be dedicated to my tank more, and My cycling will end up at the back burner until warmer weather. (I HATE riding my trainer in the basement ughh...)

Its been trying that's for sure, hope things are looking up. Got the new plants in, and settled. Now let's see how well they grow. Most were in the emersed state, so it will take some time to transition. I shifted the stump on the right further back and to the right. Giving me some more room for plants, and hopefully in the near future some bottom dwellers.
