Default 29 gal 8 months out

These are some progression pics of an uninhabited 29 gal that I put together in November.

First planted:


About 1 month later:


At this point I switched the lighting from a 4' dual t8 strip to a dual 65w power compact. It's an awesome hood, and I was able to get it for $25 at a yard sale, but the intensity is way to high with both lights running, and consequently a few things got burned.
March '09:


This pic was taken today. The fern in the center isn't doing well, and needs to be pulled. I added some water-holding broms recently, and the ficus pumilia minima has started covering the background nicely. Hopefully by the 1 year mark the entire back wall will be covered.
June '09:


enjoy!

Very nice looking - but one single word comes to mind when I'm looking at it.

HEAVY

I try to avoid heavy.

It's actually pretty light. The substrate is elevated on foam blocks. I keep my tanks as light as possible too.

I'm hoping to get a group of 4-6 Borja Ridge vents for the tank.

Thanks for the kind words. That is a cryptanthus, but I don't know the species.
