Really nice aquascape! I have that tank too. White rocks look very striking with black substrate.

I love that @Poly106 . I could never get my Anarcharis to survive, it always melted. What light do you use? CO2? Ferts?

LOL I love the look of it.

I have the factory light that came with my Fluval spec V. I use Flourish excel fertilizer, I have the substrate tabs and liquid version. No cO2. This was an older picture. I've already trimmed my anacharis as it was rooting, planted those in the substrate and they have all continued to grow.
I bunched them all up on the left hand side.

Does that mean the Spec V's light cannot keep plants growing by itself? I just got a Spec and I want to make sure my plants grow well.

I think it does; you need fertz for plants usually, with or without a good light.


I'm starting to think that my light is tooo powerful. My plants are melting like crazy, but the shrimp love it. I use plain ol' flourish.
