    Thumbs up (56k nono)Less than a month in, and already needed a trim

    Hello, just a little update It's been less than a month since I set this all up, and I already needed to do some trimming to keep the light coming all the way down to the smaller plants in the front. simply amazing!

    2 before pictures



    The runners(?... plants growing on flower stems)



    The cabomba before and after (even after my cuttings, I think this stuff is taller than when I bought it less than a month ago!)




    And finally, the after pictures (yes, "junk" is still floating around in these)



    Hope you enjoy as much as I am!!

    It's lookin greaet andy!

    its filling in beautifully, another couple months and it will look even better.

    now that you have trimmed your cabomba back, it will send up offsets from the bottom. and it will get bushier and fill in the back.

    I think this first trimming will give you enough body that you can just start nipping the tops off for a while to keep it from running along the surface. eventualy, it will probably lose body down low, and you will want to sacrifice the older part of the plant and bunch all the new growth and start over.

    How are the Apongenoten bulbs coming?

    Just out of curiosity, are you adding CO2 to this tank? That helped my planted tank immensely.

    Ram- the bulbs are coming!! I'll get you pics here shortly... I think one of the 3 is not what I ordered though, it looks different :-\

    Jeztor- No, I've not added any CO2. Only thing I've done is 1 fert. tab under each sword... What CO2 system are you using? I've been tossing around the idea of trying it out.
