This thing was knocking on the glass lid when I got home. Now when I open the lid it pops up. The flower is starting to fall apart already, as suspected it did not last long. But there is still anogher one on it's way, although it is growing much slower.

LOL. Run!

I've only had two of my plants flower before and that was when I first started with a planted tank. Since then 70% of my plats died and now I have a huge algae problem and a bare tank. If I remember correctly, it was a **** gold mystery snail that ate the flowers! -_-

I'm playing with a few lower level plants. They seem to grow a little slower.

Here are some full tank shots. Things look a bit unruly at the moment. I'm not sure what stage I am at, but I'm starting to want to plant things with purpose on the next tank.







EDIT: Well shoot I guess I should have posted these on my tank log thread...
