I'm sure people are sick of seeing these, but since you requested it:

Zeus:


Ares:


More plants on the way soon!

I'm going plant shopping today on the way home form work. There are two stores in my area that have decent plants and they are both on the way home.

I'm looking for more anubias and maybe a crypt, java moss, java fern, or some stalk type plants.

I need to trim the pennywort in Zeus' tank badly. It is easily five times as dense as what is in the picture. Which is only a week old. the stuff grows like a weed in 10+ watt gallon light. Probably because it is a weed..... but looks so cool.

Whatever they have that does not require co2 and will be ok in low (ares tank) or high (Zeus' tank) light, as I am running very low tech. No special substrates, no co2, regular strip light on Ares tank and an architects desk lamp with 10w (40w output) compact florescent on Zeus'.

If successful in finding good specimens I'll snap new pics tomorrow when everything settles.

The only plant that isn't real is the one with white leaves (but Flair loves that plant - so I kept it...). The plants are actually looking a lot better since they are acclimating - the dwarf hairgrass and crypt have grown like crazy since being planted!

The lilly pad looking plants are Brazilian Pennywort. It is technically a weed and grows like one, a lot of pruning needed, but looks cool :)

They are in both tanks, as well as anubias nana. Zeus' tank also has a spiral val in it that I took clippings from a friend. Plant shopping did not go so well today, nothing good. Tomorrow I will drive up to big als, they often have really nice plants.
