The carpet looking plant it just the vals spreading. I am trimming the runners back so they just grow out to the sides and back of the tank. Once it's filled in thick ill cut them down so it'll look more like a carpet.
Nothing since the recent pics. Trimmed the vals a bunch to try and get them to carpet some more. We'll see how they look tomorrow. I got five black and white striped shrimp the other week too; store calls em bumble bee shrimp.
