Couple of Older picts of this . I'm really just getting a feeling for different Scapes and Plants in general. Always changing. Glosso in the earlier stages, now HC etc..
Lots to learn as we all know ..
No Fish currently in the Paludarium and the Fogger does help with Humidity etc.
CO2 Pressurized.. ( Micro/ Macros ) accordingly ..
Thanks Everyone for the Encouraging Words !

I'll have to admit, using a great soil here definitely makes a big difference.
ADA Amazonian . No algae problems with that little 10 gallon. Lots of WC's initially .

Up to date Pictures

Been trying to get the ferts a little better in check along with lighting. The current lighting are the Dual 24 watt T5 HO's but I just added a small Compact Florescent in the back as well and that has helped on the Rotala Green for a more Cascading effect as seen in the pict.
Ferts are daily. Dry and Pressurized CO2 to go along with..

"Latest Trim" picture with stats..

Thank you for the kind words ! Just a lot of fun in general ! I just did a trim job
on the HC here and have been lucky that's it's worked out good for me as far as growth
and no algae issues.

Tank: 10 gallon "Radius" great little tank ! Curved fronts, Glass...
Substrate: Amazonia
Lighting: Dual T5 HO 24 watters and just added the Coralife 32 watt PC fixture to the back which helped a lot for the Rotala Green sp. as far as Cascading a bit more.
Ferts: Dry Micro/ Macro's alternating on a strict schedule with WC's 30-50% once per wk.
CO2: Pressurized on a timer..

Nothing great on the scape here but just learning how to balance everything out in general.
Thought I would shoot these picts with just the Rear Light on for the heck of it.. Little different.
I'll have to get a "Full Light" shot on this since it's rather hard I know to see everything in its entirety..

subscribed. Can you teach me how to make the S.repens dome like what you have there? I am definitely interested to learn from you.

The one thing I do envy those with C02--the rapid growth that's possible to allow for very fast turnover on experimental set ups. But not so envious that I'm willing to give up the ease of my low-tech. :)

Beautiful 'scapes!

Pretty easy actually. Just trim accordingly and shape to what you want. Initially, it doesn't look too good but will grow in shortly.. I'll have to say it's a fun PLANT to work with and has a lot of possibilities.. Thank you all for the kind words !! Nothing fancy here really on this scape but beings that it's a high lit tank etc. that in itself is a challenge ....
Just recently went to LED's. "Finnex" so things have to adjust etc..
