Thanks. Due to a lack of free time, I haven't been able enjoy it or any of my other tanks, which is also why I stopped doing WC.

Thanks. I'm very pleased with the mini micro sword. The E. belem hasn't spread/grown much but the sword, as can be seen, has become a full carpet. I'm not sure why there isn't a high demand for it.

Did you give your Mini S to your GF or did you end up selling it? Your Mini M looks great. Have fun with the UG. :p

I actually like it as is. I wouldn't add a thing to the tank. The mini micro sword is great. I am with you, I don't know why more people don't use it.

I agree with sewingalot as I wouldn't change anything either. It is definitely inspirational. I have a 10 gallon I am getting ready to rescape.

Thanks everyone. I got the mini micro sword from Minsc (fellow TPT member).

I gave the Mini S to my bro. The Ug is growing really slow in the Mini M. If you need any UG in a month or so, let me know. I have some growing in a spare 2.5 gallon tank. Free, of course.

I'd likely end up accidentally killing the UG. That's probably why I stick to easy-to-keep plants.

New pictures, complete with random floating Blyxa japonica bushes.

I should probably do a WC soon. Been about two months now.

The water is still quite clear. It is actually better than what is shown in the pictures.

That tank is so nice! I can't believe you haven't done a water change in two months and it looks that fantastic. Looks like you spent hours getting it ready for the pictures.

I like my tanks to be maintenance free. I don't think I've even touched this tank since the last WC except to add/remove the floating Blyxa plants I was giving away.
