just an update on the bamboo. i have seen some slow growth on the leaves. i was surprised considering it has been fully submerged. i am kind of keeping progress on it to see how long it takes until i will need to get rid of it. but so far so good. been about 3 months and is still there :)

Aww! I love her tank! She did great - and so did you, on all 3! I can't wait to see some progress pics in a month or so!

wanted to update you guys on my tanks. sorry lost connection for a while, so here are my updates. 1. the bamboo is doing great. growth isn't as rapid as i expected but it is going. had an unexpected die off in my daughter's tank again with the guppies. though the endler hybrids seems to be living hardier. had a couple of crypts that became uprooted and rotted and i didn't notice as they were just barely out of the substrate..... so the ammonia from that killed the guppies. but thankfully i was able to catch it before it became a complete killer in my tanks. my son's tank has become a jungle wonderland! lots of crypts in that tanks. very happy with the growth rate in there.

sorry about the quality of pictures. need to get a better camera. the two smaller tanks were just cleaned so they are still in the process of completely settling.

the mondo grass created a horrible mess and it was a complete pain to uproot. i don't recommend trying it out and seeing how long you can keep it alive like i did. sadly petsmart doesn't label it....and seels it as a truly aquatic plant.

Great looking tanks. You might be out of the woods with the bamboo. Its leaves are at the top now, right ?

on my 20 gallon tank the leaves have grown out of the tank. in the 60 they have not but i am seeing constant growth in the 60 as well. in fact i left one floating and had one planted. the planted one grew while the floating one showed no real growth. so i think the bamboo in the 60 will do ok too. i have planted the second piece after this 3 month long experiment.
