Default 100G short custom grow out

I got this tank just to grow out some of favourite species of plants for my aquascapes, to trade and sell to local hobbyist. Its 4 foot by 3 foot deep and 14 inches tall. This height is perfect for deep light penetration and optimal surface area for growth. Once I get things growing in tighter, I'll scap it a bit more. Tom barr has a similar size tank, its what gave me some inspiration To get this one going. For those looking for any of the plants in the picture, check out my buy/sell page

Here are some more new pic of the grow out tank . check out all the reds

haha thanks man, those are horrible pics from the wifes phone, but ill get some nice ones soon. Im in collection mode right now, so I have a crap load of species.. I need to scape my 49 again in order to unload some species in there. I just picked up some hygro araguae, pogostamon errectus, and some tropica rotala macrandra red from agar growth. I also need to clear out my 10 gallon buca tank. Its also over grown.

I'm glad you found some Araguaia, what was left of mine decided to melt. I have lost a few plant species due to moving. My own fault for leaving them out of water for too long and not realizing.
