Whew ok I was worried. LOL I am really looking forward to the pictures. My plants are really growing well in this tank and my shrimp and snails are on there way.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Still waiting on the other picts, but that's the final product.
(Ok, not final product because I rearranged it... That's basically it though.)

Some of the dwarf sag uprooted itself... Odd that I didn't notice it.


The little E. Blehiri Compakt is in the front... Isn't it cute? :P

Well it's not a miracle worker, most of the red plants in the picture above didn't survive long at all.

I only have 1 'full soil' tank at this point... The others three are now variations... A handful of soil- but my homemade substrate makes up 90$ of the substrate.
