Just wanted to post a some updates on my 30 Gallon as well as 2 new ones.... (Im running out of flat spaces :P)
Heres a pic of the 30 before pruning this weekend:

The 30 Again after a major scalp:
20 Gallon I just started. Will be a shrimp tank mostly.
The 20 has dwarf sag. E Tennelus, 5 Different Crypts (Wendtii, Wendtii Red, Petchii, Lutea, Spiralis), Anubias Barteri, Anubias Nana Narrow leaf, Cladophora aegagropila (Moss Balls or Marimo Balls), Java Lace, Java Moss.. I'll probably add more... Probably Crypts. For lighting it has 52Watts of Power Compacts hitting just over the 2.5WPG mark. Further details about the lighting shown in my DIY thread: https://www.aquaticplantcentral.com/f...-compacts.html
The Blackstripe minnow that I posted about afew weeks ago finally got a permenant home on a double stand under the 20 Gallon pictured above.
I also started this tank this weekend to house a Green Spotted Puffer. I've always wanted to try one of these fish so I finally did. LOL... The Brick... my wife-to-be is an architect and I just plain couldn't talk here out of putting the brick in there - Her statement of "Man vs Nature"
It will end up getting covered with moss... Or maybe glosso in a mesh bag.
The 30 Gallon has settled in nicely at this point.... it looks as if my little fight with algae is over - I see now that I've scalped it that the Red Ruben in the center behind the driftwood is growing pretty well.... its gotten a good deal bigger... All of the swords are kind of poor looking ... any suggestions here? ...
