when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Very nice aquarium and carpentry skills.

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.

Thanks guys.The good thing is I get to combine both of my hobbies by building my own stands.I also built the stand for my 50g that I'm working on getting going.I'll start another thread for that one but the build is gonna have to wait until after we take our vacation next month.
Byron I have a question about my Echinodorus Rubin.It's the only plant that isn't doing well.My ozelot is doing great as you can see in the first pic.The rubin hasn't taken off as well.I moved it a little farther away from the back wall when I did my water change this week and l'm getting root tabs for it.I dose with Flourish Comprehensive also.Any other suggestions?The crypts are all growing well and the valls have runners moving out with a daughter coming up on one and the java fern is doing good too.

Not sure I can see it, but is it at the back just left and behind the crypt in the centre? Smaller leaves that the crypt? If this is it, yes, I would move it out front, as these need more direct light. Also, a root tab fert would help. I have found that tabs assist the red leaf swords.

Yes,that's it.It's under direct light now and has more room for the roots to spread.Hopefully this and the root tabs will help it.Thanks for the help.
