Hi,
I've a high tech tank as well and I see we both "trim"
the same way! I just did mine after about three months
of just water changes and had to throw out 10 pounds of wisteria.
No one to give it to.
There are some awfully shaded areas along the driftwood.
Any problems with algae or poor growth in those areas?

Frank

Hi Frank.

The growth in the shade does decrease compared to the non shaded areas. Good thing is the left driftwood piece can move left and right, so growth isnt a problem.

OK I will ask the question before others do.
Why did you clear so much out of the left hand side? It looks ever so bare.


Have a look in [link=My Profile] http://www.fishprofiles.com/forums/member.aspx?id=1935[/link] for my tank info

I cleared the left to make room for new plants

Today I received some more plants to add to the tank. Im getting a few more tomorrow *fingers crossed* But let it grow for a week or so, and it should look better.

So far in the front left scape i got...
Rotala mini type1 - 4 stems
Eriocaulon sp (Jeff) - 3 stems
Ludwigia sengelensis - 1 stem
Tonina maunus (Jeff) - 1 stem
Tonina maunus (Keith) - 4 bushy stems
Tonina lotus - 2 stems
Nesaea pedicellata (Jeff - Red) - 1 stem
Nesaea pedicellata (Keith - Green) - 1 stem
Lindernia sp. "India" - 1 stem
Staurogyne sp. "Purple" - 1 stem
Eriocaulon sp. cinereum - 1 stem
L.arcuata - 2 stems
L. brevipes - 2 stems
Proserpinaca palustris - 10 stems
Eriocaulon sp. "Red" - 1 stem

The rocks is a stay and matches well into the scape. Hope to get a few more Eriocaulon to complete the scape.

Anyways, here are some photos
