Keeping it real simple this time around. Planted on April 21st, 2013, this is my single planted species, UG, Utricularia Graminifolia, 60-P tank. Photo period is 4 hours and 30 minutes a day with no CO2 injection or fertilizers. Currently only 16 Harlequin rasboras swimming around but I want a school of pgymy cories in the near future.

Day 1 (April 21, 2013) Please excuse my bad shots.....really bad shots...

Really well done with the UG!

I'm with George on the glassware though, needs a couple of hours in some bleach.

Just an update for you guys!
Here is the tank from last night (156 days, 09.23.13)

Still no pressurized CO2 but have been looking around for cylinders/regulators... however the UG is pearling A LOT even without the CO2. So makes me wonder if I should bother investing in CO2 equipment. The right side has bounced back and is way greener than before. Overall, I am fairly happy with the UG and it is spreading nicely. What do you guys think? :)

Very cool. I like the simplicity both of the 'scape and your method. You going to give it a trim?

Looks really good. Great to see someone with success in growing UG (and that with no pressurized Co2).

Kudos for daring to keep it so simple :).
