Finally an update. The pictures are a little old, but I'm in class and figured I would update the thread!
So far the tank seems to be coming along nicely. Seeing great growth in the HC as well as some of the hairgrass and especially the back left corner. Also, finally got around to tying down the moss on 2 rocks and already seeing vertical growth. I will probably end up having to move the rock with the moss on it in the front to somewhere in the back as it grows vertical and would cover up things if I keep it where it is. Not sure where to move it though.
I am getting a little bit of stringy algae (I'm assuming) on some of the stuff. Not sure how to get rid of it either. Don't think I have a close up picture of it though.
Edit: just realized I had already posted these pictures. Whoops! I'll take new ones when I get home and put them up.
