Well here we go:

FTS



and FTS before crop ignore the legos on my desk... its my daughters


New buce additions... little messy around the buces though


Im digging the anubias growing under the rock


Fish somehow schooling


Im loving the purple buces in this tank


another pic of buces on top of the rock. These came from the group order and the new leafes are growing noticeably bigger and healthier... i guess this plant likes a lot of flow.


Brown crypt with bulleted leafes... it was bigger way bigger but I trimmed most of the leafes off


more pics of my original buce aquired years ago




and weeping moss growing on top of the fissidens.

For those of you that asked. This is how I attached fissidens to the rocks.

I literally rubbed fissiden particles against the stones. No crazy glue, no additives, no careful planning simply smashing and rubbing my hands against the rocks until there was nothing left in my hands to hold.


Here is a pic of what the rocks looked like on the first day.





And the picture of my hand after rubdown



4 weeks later



6 weeks later


8 weeks later


The tank was flooded on the same day. Some moss floated away but the majority of the spores/bits and pieces remained intact.

I know it's a long shot but would you happen to know what the purple buce in your 180 is?
The color is amazing.

I'm trying to find a nice purple to add to my tanks but it's so hard to tell what it'll look like based off of vendor pictures.

When I bought it was called brownie ghost purple. No idea what it's called these days.

Thanks

Bump: Ahhh... what happened to all the images?

I'm slowly consolidating all my tanks and getting rid of some of the excess stuff I have. Buces are tough to let go since I have been collecting them for a while so for time being I made this farm tank.

There is barely any room in the substrate to plant anything else at the moment.
