Here's mine from a few weeks ago....it needs some work (floating plants, dirty glass, plants need trimmed etc etc!), but has been neglected lately due to my infatuation with the new reef tank. I'm planning on doing a major overhaul on this tank soon, though!

Newfound, would you like to come neglect my tanks for awhile? Your rank is fantastic even in it's currently neglected state. The aquascaping still gives it some nice strong lines that lead the eye around to view all of the pleasing shapes and colors. Well done.

I agree with Purrbox. If I could neglect my tanks and have them look like that....it would be awesome. Your tank is stunning!

Yes, and what a shame. Tell ya what I'll do to help you out. Take out all the plants and send them to me (along with any ferts). This way, I can take a shot at "neglecting" them too.

just goes to show how we're all never happy with our own tanks and envy everyone else's!

I did catch the jab at my username, JChillin, in hindsight I really do wish I had thought a little more about what I picked....oh well. By the way, 77951 is the sail number to one of my sailboats!

Actually, I was doing a manual quote and couldn't do the numbers correctly so I substituted the "lotso'numbers" as a short cut. I do recall the sailboat connection however.

So, is it a deal...I get to give neglecting your plants a shot?

JChillin, you're more than welcome to neglect any plants that i take out of the tank...which might be a lot soon!

Rich311k, tank looks great and beautiful angel, too!

Tank pics

rkilling generously sent me some clippings earlier this year -- thanks Randy! -- and I promised him I'd post the pictures. I finally got my friend to come over with her digital camera, so here are a couple of photos. The tank has grown out quite a bit since I got the clippings, you could say.

This is a 29g with two bottles of DIY CO2, and a two-bulb NO light fixture. When these pics were taken, I was dosing Flourish ferts, but have since switched to Greg Watson ferts. Eco-complete substrate.

Additionally, this is my first time posting pics, so... here's hoping they turn out well.

Here is mine as of 3/31/07--been fully planted since about 12/31/07--so three months now. I know it is all just a big jumble of green, so my next project will actually be an attempt at aquascaping. I had to make sure I could actually grow plants first. LOL

Indeed, this is the first step...now on to the second.

This may be the first weekend that I have not uprooted half the tank. Hopefully I will like this arrangement.

This is my first planted tank. It's already undergone several revamps, but here we are as of today.
