yes it is. im hoping in the next week or 2 it will be fully grown. ive been meaning to ask you where in mississippi are you from? im from hattiesburg. if you ever feel like trading plants let me know.
I live up in North MS, and I dont even have any plants to trade right now anyways. I took down my tanks while moving into an apartment. I finally bought a house. I'm just now getting back at it.

Sounds good. I may need to take you up on that offer. I'm about to plant this 60g, but I'm probably going to have to get some new lights first.

I'm not that experienced with planted tanks. I had one 10g dirted, with nothing but walmart lights, but that thing grew like crazy. Click image for larger version

so the tank is going great as usual. just did a cleaning and a little trimming on it. i had some strands of the utricularia graminifolia that just wanted to grow straight up towards to the top of the tank so cut that out. the carpet is almost full but i do have a few spots where the utri seems to be just alittle lifted off the substrate and im not sure why. i also have a few spots here and there where it doesnt seem like the utri even wants to try and cover but hoping after more time it will. im am very very very pleased with these finnex planted + lights. they are just perfect. in 2 weeks of not cleaning the tank there was a little algae on the glass but barely noticeable. i had to get really close to the tank to even really see it.







a few pics from a fishing trip of the mean looking animals we have in our mississippi waters..

you can barely see it but they have very sharp small teeth
