    Thank you for the very nice encouraging compliments! I am very pleased with how it is looking. The place in the back just left of the path that looks empty has a couple Alternanthera Reneicki, so soon that spot will fill out.:Happy:

    I was just messing with you..;;) Will do on the pics. I did a nice big water change yesterday, so I hope it is looking good today. I have seen though, the hot pink color is draining from my sunset hygro. I am scared to dose this tank heavily, after the algae problems I have been having in my nanos{but I think I have figured out why} I ordered some dry ferts from Orlando, at Green Leaf Aquariums. They should arrive today. I want to learn all over how to dose, so the plants grow and the algae is at least kept to a minimum.

    yeah.. oh well. :D

    i have the same problem with my sunsets too, they only appear dark pink in my pond which received low ambient lighting and no fertilization except for fish food and goldfish poo, but in the aquarium, they readily lose their pinkish color even though the light is medium bright and they are fertilized quite regularly and with co2 injection.. btw, i dont have phosphate.. do you think phosphate matters? tia

    That's true waterfaller1. :) We are the few people who are helping each other to increase awareness of this hobby here in our country.

    I am in love with aquatic plants...how they grow, they live in different conditions really mystifies me at the same time marvel at how they look and thrive.

    Well, keep on posting!

    i envy your CO2 setup...:( looks really great.

    That is awesome that you have come together as friends in the hobby. We are trying to get a local 'club' started here in central FL.
    Don't they have CO2 set ups available where you are?

    Well it was not cheap, but ..it isn't like I am rolling in money. We spend money on our pets and hobbies..but cannot have a family..so. I always use that as my argument, "just think.....if we had three kids....":p

    Most excellent. Good development. I think the driftwood on the right side might look better if it was up in the air like the left side. Any up-close shots of that beautiful red rotala on the right?

    Thank you for your comments John. I know you have been pushing for that right side dw to be upright. I am going to compromise with you.. I put the smallest piece upward this morning, I'll see how I like it. I am getting some algae.I am hoping it's just a matter of the plants getting established and me learning how to properly use the dry ferts. No close-ups..do you mean the wallichi or the magenta? I can work on some, but again..close ups may reveal algae...*sigh*..my enemy.:(

    LOL, algae can be your friend too. :)

    R.wallichi is the plant in your scape that has caught my interest.
