    Many thanks guys. really, for the kind words.

    @ 2.5 weeks old, things are settling down nicely now. I've trimmed the rotala and other stems as they were racing ahead of everything else.

    The HC, is starting to flourish now apart from one corner.(lack of light)

    here's a couple of snaps.

    here's looking in the mirror.

    A 5 week update.

    The stems have gone through 2 rounds of trimming in just 4 weeks. A few issues with the right side regards to co2 etc, but I'm over that now and everything is growing good now.

    here's how the tank is looking @ 5 weeks. The stems have just been trimmed so it looks slightly wrong at the moment

    Mark, something I always wanted to know about manzanita wood, does it float or not?
    if yes, how do you attached them?

    jur4ik, yes it does float but soaking over night eliminates this. i just then bury it in the substarte or hold it down with a stone.

    The tank is co2 injected and i'm using EI fertilisation. Light wise it's just 2 x 54wt5 for 8 hours.

    The plant to the left is teres. larger than tennellus but travels in the same way.

    i've trimmed the HC tonight and tidy the left side.

    my son thought it was a good idea to put stickers on the door.:-s
