shrimpnmoss no i did a little DIY kinda thing so it works with the lily i have.:biggrin: i'll take a pic of it later.

Well i started a dry start on it today, will try to get pics of it but it is really humid in there so the glass is all foggy. my filter elbows still haven't come so i can't fill the tank until they do, but a dry start will allow the hc enough time to firmly root itself, i think i'll dry start it for two weeks.

End of Week 3 DSM

have some good growth on the HC, the browning is from it being in the bowl for 4 weeks before it without light and CO2, but it's becoming rooted really well and is starting to take off. I am pretty sure i'm either gonna have CPDs in here or OEBTs still haven't decided yet.



some moss growing on the rocks:


close up of growth:


some plant that hitch hiked in on the rock in probably a seed
