Rescape. Removed HC, added Tropica 49. Fought off Spirogyra with Algaefix. Added a few more espei rasboras and a dwarf gourami, removed PFR.

Hmmm, the tank looks like one I saw on YouTube a tiny but ago, same light and same layout. Have you posted videos to YouTube? Didn't see the YouTube link....

I love the layout, I like the added height given.

looks so lush, very nice growth!

those espei's look really good in there as well, they really pop against the green plants.

Yep that's my fixture and my tank. The Finnex is much cooler than my old t5.
