Just dwarf hairgrass. I tried hc in here but I could not keep it rooted with all the fish. Im debating ripping it all out and growing glossostigma instead.

First class setup. Love it! Your trim opened up the back nicely, the dw stands out more.

That was the idea! Ive been trying to cultivate the red ludwigia for the last few months so it was sort of taking over an area in the back making it look crowded. I managed to turn two stems into 15 and moved it to the left.

The two types of bacopa had also grown into a tangled mess so I teased them apart and gave them their own groups.

There is now a lot of open space between the left and right features, and some added depth to the valley between them

Fantastic job. One of the best tanks I have seen. keep up the good work. Do your barbs act aggressively towards any of the other fish? They really pop in your tank.

Thanks!

The barbs dont act aggressive towards anyone honestly. They all hang out as group and are very active, but they dont nip or chase any other fish.

Tank is REALLY LOOKING AWESOME!!!

Just read threw the whole thing , and you have done a awesome job! The automation must make it a joy to have a high tech tank! Plants are looking top notch and the fish colors .... WOW!

Can you give us a list of your current fish and plants? Do you still have the puffers in there?

Keep up the Awesome work!

The puffers sadly did not fair well in here. They now have a dedicated 10 gallon just for them (I have another thread for that tank).

Current livestock:
- 6 gold barbs
- 30 cardinal tetras
- 6 jullii corydoras
- 10 otos (I think, they hide a lot so its hard to count)
- 6 blue rams
- 2 dwarf aquatic frogs
- 2 bamboo shrimp
