Yeah, now it looks to flat... the problem with the regular fish store aquariums is that they are 12" wide. Too flat to get any good background going. I'm scared that if I pack the plants too much the leaves in the middle bottom will not get any light and die.
I did a trim and pulled out some old Myrio and Red Ludwigia.
I also did my very first filter clean up about a week ago and ooh boy did I make a mess. I did read on it a lot before I changes the media and thank you to all that answered my questions in another post. But all is well!
I did have some problem with the lily pipes.. all the brushes where too stiff and would not bend the curves of the pipes or too short and would not reach the end.
Now I'm having a problem with some algae and I can use any help I can get.
