It's been forever since I've posted a pic of one of my tanks. So, here are some recent pics of my Shelldweller tank. This tank is proves the impossible possible. I'm getting nice healthy growth with 0.75WPG, I'm growing plants with African Cichlids, and I'm growing rooted plants with Stappersii, which by all accounts is a 2" bulldozer. Oh, and gotta love the fertilization regime. See below for details. Thanks for looking - I hope you like it!
