This is 3 weeks of growth in my 55 gallon aquarium, using time lapse photography. It shows the growth as it reaches for the water line of the aquarium. You can see the Cabomba, in the middle of the aquarium, opening it's frills at the end of the stalks each morning, about every 6-7 seconds in the video.

55 gallon glass aquarium(48x21x13 inches), 10 lbs CO2 tank with solenoid (attached to timer for lights), filter return inline CO2 defuser, 2x Coral Life 10,000k lights & 2x coral life true color white 65w each, Eheim Classic Canister Filter 2215-37, 200W submersible heater, and five or six 20 lbs bags of "CaribSea Tahitian Moon Reef & Marine Substrate."

Various species of plants ranging from Java moss, Java ferns, Java lace fern, Cabomba, Ambulia, Anubias, Anacharis, Water Sprite, Baby Tears, Cardamine, Wisteria, Moneywort, Echinodorus, Proserpinaca Palustris, Myriophyllum, Marsilea hirsuta, Bacopa monnieri, Eleocharis acicularis, Vallisneria, Aponogeton Madagascar Lace, Cladophora aegagropila, Ophiopogon japonica, and a few others I haven't identified yet.

I have 3 plecostomus's (Black Sailfin, Albino bushy nose, Tiger), various Swords(green, koi, marigold, red), Platties(mickey mouse, high fin, bumble bee, blue mickey mouse, painted, red), Guppies, Loaches(clown, Black Kuhlii, Reticulated Hillstream), Neon & Blue & Black tetras, Zebra's, various Corydoras, Violet Goby, and glass fish. I also have an assortment of fresh water shrimps including Cherry Red shrimp, yellow shrimp, snowball Shrimp, Amano Shrimp, Red Crystal Shrimp, and Bamboo filter feeding Shrimp.

It's time to start trimming the plants!

Please check out my fully automated water change system. You can see it in use towards the end of this video as the water level drops and slowly rises about 1-2 inches daily.
