Thanks - hoping that the hairgrass will send out runners and start to carpet - may have to keep them trimmed.

Im letting the plants settle for a week or two.

My favorite, lots of hairgrass! It is so tall already, was it grown submerged?

Very nice, looks great already. Love the densely planted left with the wood swooping out from it. You might want to go through and smooth out the substrate's edge best you can now. I was amazed at the difference in appearance when I was able to do that, the tank looked much more established right off the bat.

Im looking at maybe 50 cardinal tetras and 5 discus.

There are already five clown loaches in there, and a couple catfish.

This was a low tech established tank that i tore down for a high tech.

Kathy - i belive that it was grown submerged, just hope it sends out its runners so i can trim it back - it is far too tall for a carpet atm.

That tank really wants 7-9 blue turq discus. Discuspaul might see this thread and if he does he'll give you a lowdown cause I'm much lesser experienced with them (nearly 2 yrs only).

thanks for the heads up LB, i will be sure to check it out.
Plants are looking good - although today they look a little stressed...

Is this normal for plants that have just been transplanted??

Oh, yeah. The leaves might even die, but if you have a good substrate, co2, and fertilization, they'll explode. Clown loaches do get past a foot in length and are very strong fish. Discus don't like them (fast, upsetting movements), and the cards might become expensive feeders...
