thanks for the links byron. just an update. my package of plants came in yesterday so i rescaped my tank. it looks quite a bit better than it did before. i cut down on the amount of pennywort i had. i literally had enough to fill 2 40 gallons before this rescape.
its lights out for my tank now, but i will post a photo of the tank tomorrow and definitely would appreciate any feedback you might have :)
the S. repens, i planted it. i assumed that like pennywort, as long as you had enough stem, it owuld eventually grow roots. and since there are no roots in teh water column i think i have to go get root tabs tomorw. the package also came with some sunset hygro (i am in california so i believe it is legal here), blyxa japonica i think, and one more rare plant, but i think it died in shipment, which is just my luck. anyhow, though i wanted it to be an amazon tank, the seller was nice enough to give me all these other plants so i figured dont let them go to waste and just use them :)
updates on the fish, the rams are doing well now and so are the two honeycombs. i dont visibly see any signs of ich so i will turn down the temperature thursday. then do a water change on sunday as planned.
