    Pictures


    I replanted the tank 18 days ago (you can see the previous picture in my introduction post) and this light has done a fantastic job growing plants. Admittedly, the light is a little too small for 30" but it still does a great job. Right now I'm focusing on maintaining pruning, growing everyone up especially the Proserpinaca, and limiting algae growth on the rock work.

    Algae growth on the rock. Might need to trim the Araguaia.

    I'm so excited to see this golden color coming out of the Proserpinaca.

    I'm really hoping I can keep up with this tank. Pruning and cleaning has always been a weakness of mine. So my focus on growing these plants well is on keeping them well pruned/planted, and removing algae as often and effectively as possible. I don't think I have any serious concerns at the moment with plant growth however I'd love to hear any information or thoughts on my plants.

    Also, this tank has been grown out and remade countless times, and I might dig up those photos to share if you all are interested. Some a quite embarrassing... thanks for taking a look! I'll hopefully be posting the 40B and the 7g Low Tech soon!

    Nice looking tank, everything looks to be healthy and growing well.

    But.... I see we have another show off with their descent looking AR mini. Very nice.

    Thanks slipfinger, I don't think it's technically an AR mini but now that I think about it it is very mini.
