Thanks for the compliments! That room is Bill's man cave. Jerry, yes that is riccia on the rocks. The intention is that it will run together. The tank has about 4 months before the scape is mature. The foreground will fill in, plants revert to submerged version, trident fills in, etc. the riccia will no doubt has to be redone within that time period.
Phil, we miss you too! I know we have to share you but it's hard!
I know what you mean Michael. It's really educational to learn from people who are expert at this. We need to get Ricky to do this for us too.
Tanya, the tree was passed on to Nancy to try. I figure we can take turns with it.
. We have a smaller version well give to someone as well.
