i like your melano (did i spell that right?), he is a melano right? or just black?

tanks are nice. the next step would be to really scape them with a defined foreground, midground, and background.

how is the walstad jar working? i am really looking into the method to try and do a nano like it? how often do you change the water?

Yes! I have a ton of plants ordered for fore and mid ground. I am really new to this, so I am learning as I go.
Pepper is this color, lol I don't know what it is called


The Walstad is doing great now, it been set up for about 3 months. I was doing water changes weekly for at least the first month because there was alot of leaching and the nitrates where off the charts. I haven't changed the water in about 3 weeks now, the water levels have stabilized, and there is no yellowing. I think this has been due partially to removing the smaller unknown plant I had in there and adding the large wysteria.
