The asian ambulia in the back right hand side of the tank is not doing to well even though thought it would.It grows great in two out of my three tanks so I can't complain.

Let me know what you think about the looks of the tank.

Looks like you have great plant growth. Is it possible for you to bury the pot on the right? It would still serve it's function but look better, I think. Also smaller gravel might be a lot easier to work with. It looks like you have a nice foreground started there! :D

Believe me you don't know how much of a pain in the a$$ the large gravel has been. I could burry it some but I doubt it will make much of a difference. Maybe it would look better behind the driftwood with the anubias on it. It's now in front of that same driftwood now. Does that sound like it would work?

Thanks for the feedback.:D

Your plants look fabulous. I agree about hiding the pot under the gravel or behind the driftwood.

The bronze-colored sword in the middle is really pretty. Is that Crpyt. lucens in the very front?

Thank you for the compliment.

Yes it is crypt lucens.

The bronze- colored sowrd is a Kleiner Bar sword. I will post another pic of in in a week of two once it's grows a new leaf in. They are the prettiest reddish pink color.

I think I would try to hide the pot. You could use DW or bury it partly and use the rocks piled up a little around it.

If you ever decide to change out to smaller rocks I understand that #3 blasting sand is the same color rocks but smaller. You could add some a little at a time and they would settle on the bottom. Then you could scoop out the bigger rocks with a slotted spoon or colander. It would not bother your tank cycle if you did it little at a time. I also understand that the blasting sand is EXTREMELY cheap - like $12 for a huge bag. Anyway...

What are we going to do today Brain? The same thing we do every Pinky. Try to take over the world! lol
Sorry I had to. :p

I also like when tanks have the jungle look to them and are slightly over stocked. It makes it look more like it would be nature to me.

Diy Co2 would be correct.

One funny thing about this tank is that it loves to be mistreated. Like when I dose for a week according to the EI method and then not do a water change for a month the plants look amazing and the fish see more happy. I should say all plants but the Hygrophila balsamica which get a little stunted. Although I try not to do it that often it does happen form time to time when things get hectic around here.
