Martin's 60-p

This is my 60-p with a Tek t5ho (only running 2x24W's) recently rescaped. Plants: Staurogyne sp., glosso, e. tenellus micro.



Update: This is after about 3 weeks. The glosso is slowly growing in, the Staurogyne sp. is looking good though. I added 10 rummy nose tetras to my 12 cardinal tetras.

Looks awesome Martin. I'm liking that Staurogyne. You got that rockscape nailed down man. How much did those rocks cost you if you don't mind me asking?

Thanks for the compliments. I was lucky enough to get the rocks from a SFBAAPS member that found them at a landscaping place. I paid around $1.50 a pound. Unfortunately he's out of the rock. I agree, Staurogyne is one of my top 3 favorite plants (the other two being belem hairgrass and mini pellia).

I want your rocks.

Who was it that sold them to you? I gotta ask where he went to get them.

They were bought off a member in Sacramento that had a bunch of it, but he's out of it now unfortunately. Apparently a local stone yard was carrying it but stopped b/c it was too expensive and not popular enough for landscaping.
