    Stunning! Did you lower the water level to get that shot? I'm liking large population of shrimp. What is the plant growing on the wood that looks like a tree line?

    Wow,tough crowd.


    See nothing that a couple snips with scissors could not fix but shrimp's would likely accomplish the same thing .


    Given logistics of providing good consistent distribution of CO2 in such a large tank, I say it look's great.

    I think we all can agree it looks fantastic and barr is the perfect plant grower. I don't think he'll trip out if I give him a hard time once in awhile.:cool:

    Pink Flamingos are transitioning and actually staying a nice bright white pink.

    Progressing slowly, but in 2 months, I should have it looking about where I want.

    Super glue


    Faster, works better, use it on Buces etc. Tried it with mini Xmas moss, works great

    Absolutely beautiful!! I hope my riccardia grows in like that. Are those some kind of pink crypt you have there?


    How high do you hang your light off of this tank? Do you notice if your coloration changes between a lower hanging light vs higher - assuming the intensity is tweaked to provide the same PAR at substrate.

    Coloration varies a little by height adjustments but it's better overall at 14-16".


    I can drop it 2-3 inches and have, but it does not offer that much benefit since then you do not get a nicer blend of colors and bulbs.


    Pink Flamingo Crypts, Strungout sent them to me as a favor.
