Also, I think the H. pinnatifida will look great once it grows in! What kinds of Anubias do you have in there, is it just Nana and Petite, or do you have others as well?
I'm not sure what to do with these buces but the lava rock idea sounds like a plan. I wanted them front and center since they look so good when healthy but now I am having to rearrange and fit them in other areas of the tank. Just petite anubias, one of my favorite plants to use in "nano" scapes.

Just sharing pics. I love looking at this tank from the side. E.belem still not filled in yet. Moved some buces here, hoping for better growth.









I also stare at my ADA outflow and get lost..... day dreaming.

Just watching plants grow. Trying to fill the right side with styro repens instead. I'm hoping to make a brief video soon just because...

Sweetness.
Have you thought of using a background? It would cover the HOB.
Looking good

Pics on page 3. I experimented with it and it did hide the overflow well. However, the CO2 bubbles are magnified and distracting so I prefer no background.

This tank is due for some changes. Going to replace HC with e.belem. Just getting tired of the HC look ad want something different. Erios getting pretty big, got to prune them small again somehow.

This erio has a pretty big root system. Going to prune back some roots and leaves and replant this guy. Hopefully it bounces back and gives me a smaller erio again. Its starting to look out of scale with the rest of the plants. I'll do the same with the other big eriocaulon kimberly if this works out.





Also did a brief youtube video of my tank with pics. Part 2 vid coming soon.

A few more close up pics... my buce is shooting a flower again but I think my fishes eat it or something cause they never make it to bloom.







And the real reason I'm updating... I have a new toy. Works wonders.

Welcome back! For the price of that toy, I hope you just have to wave in the air and the algae will disappear. lol. Don't worry I'm very jealous of that new toy.
