Dirt tank update.

5 weeks into the new dirt tank and I couldn't be happier. I Have a 30g with only substrate and now a 30 tall with dirt. The dirt is allowing faster growth and bright colors. I like a low tech low maintenance tank, so with the dirt giving of the proper nutrients for a few months, it helps.

Madagascar Lace plant

Hi guys, Today 6/7/13 i purchased the madagascar lace plant from my local fish shop. It was in dirt with brown waters. Honestly this was the healthiest one ( great roots ). Instead of throwing it in the tank, I'm acclimating the plant just like u would a fish. Placing it in the 30g root tab , mix mineral substrate. Adding a spot light on her for sufficient lighting to give it a fighting chance. (need those T-5's.)!!!
Thanks for reading. Any suggestions or comments. Pls feel free.
