All of the rocks and plants collected locally; Pennywort (Hydrocotyle verticillata), Fanwort (Cabomba), Hygrophila, hornwort, eel grass, Ludwigia spps., unidentified bog plant (in forground)and some pondweed (barely visible in back). No CO2 just eco-complete, some neon tetras, rasboras, prestilla tetras, Cherry Shrimp and wild collected Mal. Trump. Snails. I figure whatever makes it, makes it. If it dies back, it wasn't meant to be, no money lost. I have two 36 watt compact floresents of which I usually run just one. I run both maybe 2 hours a day. Hard, S. Texas Tap water....an experiment I guess. We'll see what happens. :D

Thanks, the rocks are from just N. of Uvalde. The pondweed is from the nueces river nearby, the "unknown spps." (in the forground) is from the blanco river. Hornwort from Braunig, Penneywort from the Frio River, and most Everything else from the SM. Even one molly from the SM that I forgot about picking up by accident :icon_neut . Supplies mainly from Alamo Aquatics/Texas Trop. in your neck of the woods.

Naa,..

It seems like you need a few more plants in there ;) It looks very empty right now .
Naa...I think I'll just let'er go and see what happens. Since I'm not puttin in CO2, I don't wanna push my luck with too many. The Hygro has already grown about three inches in a week and started to branch out!
