That's a great setup you have. Cool

I have an amazon in my 29g, too, but you and I both will end up removing it someday when it grows to 2'. Smile

I was doing some resarch on hairgrass and it said when you need to vacuum the gravel you have to trim the hairgrass, is there an easier way?

Here is mine: http://www.aquahobby.com/board/viewtopic.php?t=56348

You don't need to vaccum the gravel where the hairgrass is, because the natural waste is a great fertilizer for it.

I think your tank has a lot of potential, you just need more stuff in there. But it's off to a good start

Thanks, I'm letting the sword grow out before I add any more plants.

I really like your serpae school.

Thanks, I really enjoy watching dart around the tank and when they eat

The plan for your sword sounds good but would add more plants

New pics!
I removed the swords because I'm kind of overhauling the tank they were covered in algae and dying.
