    The first image was taken on the 1/12/2013 and the second image was taken roughly 6 weeks later, 16-01-2014.

    I am amazed by the difference. Seeing everyday, slowly making the changes, I guess I didn't realize how much it had improved.


    Opinions are most welcome...

    Thank you!

    I don't know if it would be considered high tech. The tank came with three t5 tubes, a pink, a white and a blue-tinged light.

    I supplement with 5ml of Flourish each Friday.

    There is no CO2 supplementation. I have plenty of fish who do it naturally :-)

    The big stand of Bacopa and the Amazons were bought only a few weeks ago and have not grown much. I failed dismally at growing Java Moss but the Java Ferns seem happy.

    Everything else seems to go mad!

    I don't see a lot of growth from picture 1 to picture 2 but I do see a lot of added plants. Your tank does look good.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    Thank you, but did you look at the Hygrophilia on the left? The stem has gone from 1 inch to 10 inches. The Hygrophilia at the back has been growing bushy and the Ludwiga has doubled in size.

    The pics were posted at full resolution so if you open them it may help.

    Nice looking tank.
