7 Weeks Plant Growth

Just thought I would share a before and after of one of my planted tanks to show what 7 weeks of growth can look like. I'd gotten busy and let this tank sort of fall apart. It was totally empty with no plants at all. I broke down a 20g tank low tech tank and moved over the large Anubias covered driftwood on the right and had enough trimmings to cover the small driftwood log in the center with Anubias as well. Also brought over the Nymphoides 'Taiwan' from the 20g and the Cryptocoryne on the left.

New plants ordered include Rotala rotundifolia on the left and Rotala 'Nanjenshen' in the center and Aponogeton crispus and Aponogeton longiplumulosus. Barely visible because of slow growth is some Cryptocoryne retrospiralis behind the driftwood on the right and there is also some Cryptocoryne parva up front which is my favorite carpeting plant because it is so easy.

Aponogeton are obviously great for fast results for those who are impatient and the Nymphoides and Anubias have taken off quite a bit because they went from low tech and no Co2 to Co2 and ferts.
