BN's get 4-6", but I think 4" is more common. IDK really they are slow growers though. There are 3ish in my 55gal that I am working on growing out.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

One month: WARNING pic heavy

Well folks. It's been just over a month since I put the first plants in my tank. I haven't changed much except for removing most of the Vallisneria and replanting the ones I kept. Also added the stem plants and 2 more swords. The fish were added about a week after plants and a BN Pleco a couple of weeks ago. I was messing with the camera and thought I'd pop off some shots. I want to look back and compare, if I can find my initial pics in this multi-page thread. Enjoy...

Great pictures, Eric. I see you're really learning how to use that camera. The tank looks great!

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

looks sweet mh!

mine however not soo much.. thought i didnt have enough light now i'm o.d.ing on light, got brownish algae and like weird fuzz on the leaves of a few amazon swords...
am worried. have cut back on foods. every other day.. neons still swimming low, not topwater anymore (since the day i put in the co2 and re-arranged the plants)
ottos and puffs are fine. going to just not use the second light for awhile. see how things clear up (hopefully)

Thanks Kym. That first pic of the floating Pennywort is my favorite. You should see that thing full size. It's amazing. Some of the pics colors are crap. I was fulling around with camera setting and changing aperture settings and shutter speeds.
