good, the bigger of the two you can just make out in the full tank shot, behind the wood on the right hand side next to the heater it is about 6 inchest tall (i hope it gets taller) i have to keep the stargrass trimed up so that it gets light LOL

Oh, it will! I had an Ozelot outgrow my 55, although it took a while. Be patient and you'll be rewarded with a beautiful plant.

Tank looks great! Love the jungle look and those Apistos are fabulous.

i would not be disapointed if it comes to dominate that side of the tank, just as the amazon sword dominated the other end. i think sword are my favorite plant i have ever grown! (and i love to grow hot peppers! LOL)

It will get huge. Mine's pretty much outgrown my 75G, and I still have not removed the 2n runner. It's drooped over, and 4 of the 4 babies have roots, and the plant on the end is so heavy it sat near the surface and the roots took hold in the substrate, lol. The babies are huge now, lol, except for the one that didn't sprout roots, which is the one that's closest to the mother plant. Thinking of getting rid of the mother plant, and replanting the 4 babies, and lower the lighting on my 75G to lower-medium light. And redo the plant selection. Will keep my 29G as high light. And gonna see if I can succeed at keeping the 75G algae free with no CO2, as I ran out and can't get to the place to get my tank refilled. I've cut the lighting down to 260W, 130W up front and 130W in the back.

Your tank looks amazing! When you look at the shots at the beginning of this thread and compare to how the tank looks now, you've totally turned this tank around. Great work, again, the tank looks beautiful, green and lush.

ok if you look at the last set of pictures you will see that his tank was VERY heavily planted. so heavy in fact that i could not longer keep a good amounting of the fish, and the sag in the front was staring to grow on top of itself. plus you could not even tell i had driftwood in there

not i really like the look, but i had to clear it out and do a rescape, i am looking forward to it growing back in though

oh yea... i FINALLY got a black background!!!!



thoughts, i feel it still needs something
