Yes they are pushing the clear cover on top of the tank and hitting the light fixture, I am no longer doing water changes now just feeding and top off once in a while, I want to see how long will last.
all the fish and inverts are healthy, and water parameters are fine.

Hey I hadn't seen this last update. Those plants really grew for you. If you can ever make the space you could give them a lot more room by setting them up in a breeder tank with an open top.

Nice fish too! I love sailfins.

Yeah is this tank still going?

I have a half-dozen wild sailfins in my riparium mangrove setup and I like them a lot. They eat like pigs.

I took this tank down few months ago, the Mangrove tree kept growing few inches out of the tank, the leather fern did very well, the roots went through the planter all over the substrate and reached the front of the Riparium.
