Naomi,
Was this from Albany? Here's a pantanalwrite up from AquaBotanic. Is it really as pink as it looks in the first pic?

I'm on hiatus from buying new plants until I get things in order in my 40. The 'cuba' that I bought a couple of weeks ago is starting to make a comeback after getting dosing tips from Tom Barr himself. Also my L. repens looks to be growing vertical again after spending the past couple of weeks limping along and dropping a lot of leaves.

No re-scape. Just had the water get out-of-whack. The Fremont water supply's KH has gone from 4.5 to 8 recently, and my tank's GH climbed from 13 to ~20 (probably due to mineral concentration from evaporation). Tom suggested I dose some Mg (based on the pics of my 'cuba') and sure enough, the new growth is coming out narrow with no curling. So maybe I was getting too high on Ca over the past few weeks.

Through it all the fish seem no worse for wear. In fact, my Congo Tetras started spawning again this morning (with hungry Rummynoses in trail :( ).

Your pantanal looks excellent. Guy seems to be bringing in a lot of the hot-topic plants lately. If traffic through the maze wasn't so bad during the week I'd be tempted to drive out there to take a look see myself. :D
