alright i thought i would bump this thread for anyone new who might want some inspiration for their tanks. and also i have done a huge update on mine since my last post. so i want to see all the emmebers tanks that have already posted cause i am sure they have changed since the last pic. just try to keep it to one pic so loading times arnt so bad. and if u feel up to it u can post all the stats, light, ferts, substrate, co2 levels, test readings.. anything to do with it. so here is mine. waiting on a shipment of some new plants so i have some stems and others in there. here it is....

Thanks for resurrecting the thread mr funktastic!

Here is my 55g planted:


rotala rotundifolia top

And my 29g:


ambulia

I'll be getting some dwarf hairgrass for the foreground on Friday...it looks bad now...being so bare. I hope to change out the substrate to Eco soon and rearrange. Its kind of messy atm.

Ambulia!!!! Illegal here in CO. I wish I could get some. Not that you can't send me clippings if you feel like it:P If they happen to fall into the package or something :P I'm sure I could send you something to reciprocate.

Thanks guys!

That is actually Taiwon moss on a piece of driftwood, but its kind of overgrown right now. It needs a trim, but I've been a little lazy.

That Ambulia is a funny plant. I've learned that plants that like slightly higher light (ludwigia, ambulia) do much better in the 29g than the 55g, even though the 29 has a little less light. But I guess they do better because the light is closer to the the plants. Very strange. That Ambulia was in my 55g and it was so leggy looking...looked horrible. Now look at it...its nice and fluffy!

I am running out of room for the Ambulia so next time I trim I'll be happy to send you some Travis. The bottom parts a a little leggy, but I think you have higher light than me in your tanks, so it shouldn't be a problem. The post office shouldn't check the package, right? Lol....I'm sure we could get away with it.

I'll post another picture after I plant the dwarf hairgrass and it starts growing in the 29g.

I do love the fluffy look that the Ambulia has. Very Dutch
