heehee, love the horror night pics, thanks for posting them! I haven't fallen off the face of TFK, just having a hard time keeping up with all my favorite journals T__T I'm still around and lurking, thou! Your tank looks sooooo gorgeous, so happy to see that growth on the lotus, one of my favorite plants. I hope it keeps growing well for you! Are you going to let it shoot leaves up to the surface, or keep them pruned back?

For now, I want to keep the plant bushy. I was told that I just trim off the shoot and the plant will remain bushy.
Later on I may try to let it grow to the top.

beautiful

I love your tank. Plants look so nice and healthy! Nothing so beautiful as a tank full of live plants. Wish I could have some live plants but my cichlids overrule me every time. Thanka for posting such great pics

Did some trimming during the water change yesterday. I think the Hygro is starting to get to the point that I can sell it's trimmings. It's mostly filled in it's areas, now it is time for the Wisteria, Water Sprite, Anubias, Java Fern and Lotus to do their filling in.



Found a baby plant while pulling out some duckweed! I think it is a Wisteria.


The lotus is nice and big. I've found my gouramis and shrimps favoring it's leaves.

And one of my gouramis has matured into a male. I hope he stays the only male. Here he is chasing his favored female. Both of them get very dark colored, stripey and will occasionally swim circles/weave around each other. Kinda cute :3

Thanks Bekah!
It's almost complete! I had the thought of pulling out the plants and adding soil. But i'm not entirely sure if i really want to do that O.O
Maybe I'll just stick to stuffing in root tabs?

Awww, I missed out on so many pics! But glad to finally see them!

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.
