It's been too long since I updated this thread! And I thought I'd do so now since I moved and completely redecorated Volta and Moby's tank today since Winter isn't there anymore And I've seen some good plant growth in the DP tank, which I am quite proud of. Particularly in the hygrophilia and the dwarf lily plant.
