Thanks for posting George, as said before, tis a great jungle scape. Everything compliments everything! The pinnatifida looks healthy, how are you finding the C02 distribution?

Wow, never really appreciated the Columbian Tetra's before. But next time i'm at the store, they will definately be worth a second look.

Nice Job, James.

Thanks, all. :)

... how are you finding the C02 distribution?
It's good. I'm running quite low CO2 at around 2 bubbles per second. I have more CO2 going into my 60cm.

I find with lower lighting (much of the planting is shaded by floating plants or plants with their leaves across the surface), CO2 is less important. Growth is also more manageable and the fish are more active than with 30ppm CO2.
