Unhappy 10 days

I have a little melting going on in the right front corner that I'm not too stoked about. I gave the tank a little more ventilation to clear up the fungus and its chilled out but I dunno whats up with the health of the HC. I sprayed today it for the first time in 2 days because I wanted it to dry out a bit.

Update 2 1/2 weeks:

HC looks healthy but isn't spreading much yet





The dwarf sagittaria is NOT doing well. I had to cut some of it out because it was dead.

Thanks. I cut a piece of Polycarbonate for the lid today. Its plastic so it wont break and its polycarbonate so it wont warp from heat and moisture. Its super clear and I saved $15 buying it from the scrap bin at my local plastics manufacturer over the $20 glass lid at the fish store

Things are going great. I'm actually enjoying this stage. It looks nice. I hope to god I have as good a luck when I flood the tank.

So easy to take care of. I spray it once a day and dry off the inside glass with a paper towel. No water changes or algae.

I updated the video too. At this rate it will be another 6 months before I flood the tank. Its ok because I need a new table to put it on where I can set the canister beside it.
