Thanks, Johnny, but the GSP problem sorted itself out. I have since removed them from my tank as they ended up being a nuisance. Wow...I can't believe my tank used to look that bare!

The LED fixture it basically a piece of 1 1/8" x 1/8" mild steel that I picked up from the hardware store. I cut the pieces to length, cleaned up the edges, used right angle magnets to hold it all...

Good to know.
It ranges from 68-74 throughout the night and day.

Busy day, so I only have a minute to update. I am getting new growth on all of the plants. The Aponogeton bulbs took off...they are wrapping around the top of the tank haha. They will be...

Here is a shot from yesterday. The Aponogeton is taking off nicely (as expected).
Yeah, man. Videos like this really opens your eyes to the slower moving life in aquaria.

Thanks for the reassurance, Cliff.
It actually has been in the same spot all week but moved behind the Xenia at some point today. It looks much better right now.
It is playing just fine for me....

I promise this is my last timelapse for the night. Half-way through my phone ran out of memory...
I'm using Instant Ocean's Krill. Behind the scenes I was fighting off my Red Mithrix Crab with a...

I didn't see a section for videos, so I chose the photography section. Which a timelapse is actually "stop motion photography," anyway, to be technical.
Over the last few days, my Entacmaea...

Very nice. I will have to go check out Stone Forest sometime. There is a river that run right behind my house. I went out there the other day and most of the rocks were smooth and round. Nothing too...

I think I'm going to try that. It's just ugly in there at the moment. I'm looking for some Ohko Stone to put in there, anyway. It's all over the web... No luck so far finding it local.

One of my Aponogeton bulbs has sprouted. The stem was about 1/4" long yesterday, and about 3/4" long today. Pretty exciting to see some new growth.
What can I do about this brown blob of Java...

I was hoping to hear some good feedback. I will report my results here as time goes by.
Thanks! He will likely be moving to a 14"x14"x14" cube that I build a couple...

I think I'm going to go with these:

Thank you! I am definitely proud of this one, as it' my first real attempt at a planted tank. I should probably go pick up some root tabs, as I haven't dosed the tank with anything other than fish...

You definitely want to neutralize that rust if you plan on having the tanks set up for a long period of time. It can only get worse if you don't.

A friend hooked me up with some free plants. The Java Moss has some issues, but maybe it will pull through.

Thanks for the ID!
To be clear, the top cut you are referring to is the on the thick round "stalk," and the "stem" is the tall skinny part with leaves at the top?

Thanks for the tips, RiversGirl.
I will take a look at the plants everyone has mentioned.
This is the bamboo that I have. I'm not sure if this picture will suffice to determine if I can...

Haha thanks! I have a acquired a wide range of abilities over the years.
Yes, I did build the tank. I actually built it about a month or so ago. I let it cure for about 2 weeks, then let it sit...

^ I think so, too.
Are my original pictures cut off for you guys? you should be able to see the full tank. I have been using my netbook and for some reason the pictures are cut off...
