There has been some changes to the aquarium.

1 - I ripped the java moss out since it was somehow browning out. I don't know why it would be browning out, could it be light? ferts? co2? no clue, but it's gone now.

2 - I am absolutely amazed at how fast these things are growing. These pictures are just 1 week old. I have seen my Ludwigia Repens X L. Arcuata Grow so fast I have to cut them soon (once they reach the top of the aquarium). All my plants have been growing and pearling since i've introduced pressurized Co2. Very very satisfied.

I've been upping the dose of this fert to 1 1/2 capfuls per day almost 2 capfuls:
Microbe-Lift.com :: Bloom & Grow All In One

3 - quite happy with the outcome, I will be obtaining some flame moss to propagate these bare limbs, the anubias nana's are not bouncing back as fast as I would like them to, but that's to be expected. I'm waiting for them to come back, they are not all out yet but they are fading for the time being.

Here are the pictures
================
LEFT: (the tall crypt have grown at least 1-2 inches in height since)


MIDDLE: Very happy with the 1 week milestone results
An addition to the tank -- Here's a picture of Gordon, my aquarium guardian.


RIGHT: You can really see the progress of the Ludwigia repens here, along with the L. Repens x L. Arcuata


My Staurogyne Repens have been strong, roots are forming quickly


A shot of the crypts


Close up of the L repens and some other plants (forgot the name)


Dwarf Sagg recovered as well as some of the baby java ferns with amazon dwarf swords


Another Full Shot as a summary:





As a comparison

Best Complement I got today was a colleague dropped by and his jaw dropped and said "That is one sick looking setup!!!"

Made me proud of spending 6-7 hours the week before setting this up.

Let me know what you guys think. Critiques are always welcome.

[Day 22]

- Update -
[Day 22]

The aquarium is doing great, had to adjust Co2 output today to match 1 bubble per second or 1 bubble per 2-3 seconds.

I got my new Canon S100 and am VERY happy with it!!! :biggrin:

Here are some shots with it:
I'm not too sure about the details about these pictures yet, you can probably tell better by the info embedded since they have not been modified. Let me know what you guys think! The growth in this aquarium has been amazing -- just 1 week and I have to constantly trim!

Flames and old ember batch died due to mis calculation with Co2, but it's been fixed with a bubble counter.
