Plant progression after 2 months update

After ripping out the whole left side of my aquarium plants to re-plant with off-cuttings I have taken another photo just 2 months later to record the plant progression. It’s pretty much grown in.

Doing a huge aquarium rescape

Before I ripped out all the plants in the left side of the tank and replanted the off cuttings. They looked firmly in place and had taken root.

Making my aqaurium, rimless, with a cheap LED lighting unit

When recently taking the big plastic lid off my aquarium I realised how nice, and modern the tank looked without it, as a rimless aquarium.

Plant progress and new plants in the main tank

Bought some more plants from my local fish store today, for my main tank, and thought I’d show some plant progress.

So I bought a few more plants that should really pack the tank … Continue reading Plant progress and new plants in the main tank
