Cool project Caleb. I've seen a lot of people do dry-starts on things like star repens, and other plants for a few weeks and then slowly flood the tank. Wish I had the extra coin to spend on a proper substrate and some plants!

I just used stuff laying around the house and plants I already owned lol. We will see how it goes.

Nice! I'll say though, dracaena is not an aquatic plant.

I'm no plant expert. Some it it's doing great others not to much. I'm spreading it out because it became a forest and the lower leaves were browning from not enough light. I'll keep you in mind for it though because it grows like crazy. I just want to restore to health first. Who wants a browning plant to coming the mail? Lol

Finished with the Bacopa Caroliniana on the 75g. Tank still needs a ton of work but one amazing thing is it seems my GSA has just disappeared overnight. I cleaned the tank really good late last week and it just hasn't come back at all. I've waited for this moment for months :D it's still on my rocks but I don't mind that. Glad it's off the glass though.

The nano reef still making progress cycling. Did a top off. Can't wait for it to finish!
Attachment 271702

I spread out a bit of the leftover Bacopa to my other tanks just as a test... Yes even the jack Dempsey tank.
Attachment 271703

Also got some of the fish for the tank I'm building for a client :) temporary home for 2 more weeks till I can set up the tank. I wasn't assured stock so I did so preplanning and will get the rest sooner to the build date.

Sterbai cories I'm in love. I wish I had some of these now but it's for their tank.

Hopefully after school I'll have me a real job (in just a contractor right now) and can set up some larger tanks or a bunch on nano ones. Haven't decided yet :p
