    Hi acolli51,

    In your first post, where did you find those purple rocks? Those are awesome! Your tanks look great and the rock formations are pretty!

    I got them from a store called Fintastic. It is a great fish store in the south Charlotte area, near the I-77/485 juntion (704)-525-0049. They had more to choose from than I knew what to do with and I still wish I had limitless funds because they really do have everything you could about ever want there. I get all my fish there as well...

    Oh and thanks for the compliments, I really like my rocks too but I wish my plants would do better:;fru I bought "flourite" substrate made by Seachem and another "fertilized" gravel that I can't remember and I threw away the bag. Anyway, if anyone reads this and has used these products let me know if they do ok. I think nothing works on plants better than good old waste buildup over a couple of months or so... I just started this tank but I was told this substrate would help my plants.

    They are great. I must say that some staff are better than others but if I ask a few questions and somebody doesn't know the answer they always get somebody else to help me who knows more about whatever I'm asking. In other words, they seem to care about their customers and the fish they sell. They have also never really steered me wrong, given me bad advice or anything else. All in all I'd say it is the best fish store I've been to and they also have a HUGE selection of everything you could ever need, fish included. I forget his name but one guy with a beard and glasses is the master know it all of the fish world as far as I'm concerned and has helped me numerous times and never given me bad advice. I always consult this forum as well though for good, diverse advice just to make sure.

    Very well planted!

    The bag you threw away was probably Eco Complete.

    When I was starting with my first planted tank, I read somewhere to spread just a little bit of peat moss over the bottom of the tank and then put Florite over it. My plants have all been doing great from the start. I've gotten multiple blooms on my Anubias, and many floaters from my Tiger Lotus bulbs, although no flowers there. *pout*
    Anyway, that worked very well for me.

    I loved how you placed the plants in your 20gal.
