Sorry. in the second picture do I have too much light? It is a CFL (?) and is rated as a 60 watt bulb but it is brighter and says it is really 14 watts. But I know it is not that low!

Original lighting

Trimmed the Vals a while back and just cut off some smaller ones growing off of the plant. Also divided my smaller Wysteria. The upper part on both of them had runners everywhere! and I just left the little bit of the stems in the tank. I also trimmed the "Mystery plant" a little bit and the sword.
I would attach a pic but my phone won't send pics right now...[/img]

They are! But ever since I have started injecting Co2 My sword and my Big Mystery plant have been shooting up tiny bubbles. in a perfectly straight line. Is that normal?

I thought thats maybe what it was. It's the same kind of line that you get when you put one of those neon colored huts in the tank.

Okay so another update!!! Sorry about all of these updates but I had one exam today and got home from school at 8 AM Central time! I have been working on my tanks since I got home! I took my huge piece of water wisteria and cut it up because almost every section had shot off runners!!! So I have 2 big bushels not. One was the top of the plant and looks really cool! I banded all of the other taller pieces very loosely! It looks very similar to bamboo (Which I happen to love the look of!)!Also if I didn't say before I have a small piece of Marimo moss ball tied to the wood I have! I hope you like it!



ANOTHER UPDATE!!!

The plants look a mess but I kinda like the complex look!
