I'm either moving to Irving or Lewisville. As of right now, Irving. The foreground plant is Utricularia gramminifolia, or UG. It did NOT respond well to the blackout and subsequent water change, maybe it was the 90% change I did. It's a little stringy but it's all still there. Depending on where I end up moving to this might end up just getting a two or three month dry re-start.
And screename I SHOULD be good on rocks, but I'll let you know.

I smashed some more rocks and came out with the two on the right in this picture. I like the rock that I have in the tank now too much to not use it, but I'm torn between which one of the new ones to use!




And you can kinda tell in here, my UG is mad at me. It's also probably mad that there is a thin layer of what I'd say are green diatoms over it. I've decided though that I will likely not be filling this when I get back to Texas until I have my own apartment (likely two to three months) and will dry restart the tank. That will let me replant according to how I do the hardscape as well.

When I had UG I found that they grew thick and had small root structures, so after a couple months they managed to work themselves out of the substrate. I had to replant the darn things twice and it still happened the second time. I decided that was too much work for me.

I see what you mean about the delicate root structures. I found a little bit of moss growing in one part of mine when I had the tank with very little water in it, when I removed the moss it more or less uprooted the stuff around it. I'm going to let this grow emmersed for like 3 months though so I'm hoping that helps like it does with glosso and HC.

Snapshot taken today. Everything did well with the move, even though it rained like crazy for 900 miles of the trip!! Dry start till I move out of my friends house and into a place of my own.

Oh and we went to The Fish Gallery in Dallas today. I was in heaven. They had a display case of their ADA stuff and I had to hold myself back from picking up a Mini-S and some Aquasoil!

Glad you made it back home. Come to the DFWAPC club meeting next Sunday. Your UG is fantastic! So lush and thick.
