    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)
    9915688715_d31e9d86d3_z.jpg

    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 :).

    Hi all,
    Congratulations on the Utricularia
    I'm not sure how they will get on, they like a lot of cover.

    cheers Darrel
