    Pearls of the Antilles

    Hi, it's been about 100 years or so since I've posted here... I thought I'd share with you what I've been up to. I still sing and I still do planted tanks, though I've ventured into SW now as well. Way too many pictures, sorry. :) Well, this old tank... Has now become this tank... Well...

    Guess what's a weed in my garden!

    Hi everyone, I was mowing the lawn today and came across these little plants. I think it's either Hydrocotyle sibthorpioides or Hydrocotyle verticillata, but since I live in the SE United states and not SE Asia, I'm really inclined to believe it's H. verticillata. It is a native bog plant...

    lljdma06's 8g nano 2009! Final tank shots

    While I really enjoy my low-maintenance scapes, there are times when I like experimenting with multiple plant species and having a scape that is more involving. I have always been a huge fan of the Dutch style of aquascaping. It is so colorful and the idea of keeping many species appeals to...

    lil' 'ol Dutch-style Scape

    This was my favorite scape. One day, I'll try something similar on a larger scale, but I'll have to wait until I retire! :lol: The pruning regimen is not for the faint of heart! It took time to get the shapes I wanted. It's mostly stems. I'm surprised I got them to last that long...

    What would you do? Thanks for the help. With update.

    Never mind about the lumens then. And I thought I was being all smart with the calculations. I don't have a PAR meter, I'll restructure my question with WPG. Which is better? A. 28W of T5 over 36g B. 30W of T8 over 36g I know both are very low light. The plants would be picked...

    llj 20g; not quite finished, but it will take forever...

    Hello, I haven't posted here for a while. I've been busy with my university position and singing. I still have the 20g, and the scape has again morphed into something that I can be happy with, especially with the lack maintenance that it requires. It really doesn't make any sense to make...
