I scraped the hard water stains off of my new (used) 150g, and resealed the corner. One step closer to setting it up!

I'm so sorry for your loss!

I added some Cabomba caroliniana to the tank. I'm trying for a more heavily planted tank with more contrast and variety. I try to keep everything in my tank something that grows in South America, so it limits my choices. It's kind of a fun challenge, but a challenge none the less.

As is often the case with new plants, until they settle in, they look a little twisted. It's also a darker color than I expected. I hope it brightens up some more.

Thank you. Any pics of the new plants?

Stared at my beautiful tank and asked myself "why did I ever have fake plants?"

No Thanks for asking. I don't know what happened but they were a disaster. If it was on my part, I may have been too aggressive in treating them before putting them in my tank. They didn't look right from the moment I put them in the tank. They melted. I've never had plants just disintegrate before. I have a few lower stems that I'm gonna leave for a few days, but I'm not hopeful.

Fortunately, these are plants not fish. I'll try again. This time I'll drive to a store. I mail ordered because I didn't want to drive 30 to 40 minutes to the store that I know carries this.

So today other than enjoying my fish I netted out pieces of melting Cabomba!

It's not uncommon for plants to melt in new conditions. This is common in Crypt species. If the roots survivors you may see it spring back in a few weeks or months.
