Ummm...no. Ack.

<And the ultimate test..  How are the plants growing?

In the 10-gallon tank, the plants are almost exclusively crypts and are 
growing well, if not madly. Lots of babies. The tank is so stuffed that the 
fish are forced to slalom through the tank. The hygro is struggling due to 
lack of light.

In the 30-gallon tank, the plants grow as long as I stay on top of the green 
water. The melon swords have recently put out a couple of leaves as big as my 
hand. The E. quadristaticus in front are sending out new leaves and runners. 
The brazilian pennywort has to be trimmed every week.
