New update. Small changes. Replaced me 2028 with a 2075. Switched my lily pipes around. Trimmed the Blyxa last week but I need to trim it again.

I dub this update "Dude, where's my rocks?"

Where's my rocks is right!

Any reason why you switch your Lilly pipe positions?

Moving the pipes to the left made the plumbing stand out less as the front and full right hand side are in the normal viewing angle.

Most impressive! My blyxa was of similar height and color about six months ago, then i replanted and moved some things and it had never quite adjusted again, producing only short redder growth now. I'm assuming they disilke being moved around, as most plants do.

Looks great!

Love your tank. 3 months from now you're going to have to rename it again to "Dude, where's my staurogyne"

I will be trimming the blyxa before then, probably Sunday =D I'm going to try and avoid pulling the whole bush as it's messy and takes a month to fill back in.
