Thumbs up On the postive side of things...

After all the grief my 55g caused me so far, I figured its time to focus on the positive side of things here and share it with you

All my plants there had been planted Nov 12th, so a little over 2 weeks ago.

So far my report:
Ludwigia grew and avg of 2-3" during this time
The Hygrophilia easily grew 4"+
The Vallis & Sagittaria are looking good and are producing runners already.
My beloved Red Tiger Lotus has 4 or 5 new leaves that came up already
The Baby Tears have started rooting in as well.

All Crypto's and Red Nesaea and Swords are looking good, given what they are I'm not expecting major quick growth there, but am happy they're healthy looking.

So at least on the light and nutrition side the tank seems happy. And I am sure glad the medication didn't harm the plants neither.

Hey at least a wet thumb since I apparently ain't got no fishy fingers at this time
Maybe I should go fish less in the 55g and set it all up Amano Style under water garden LMAO
