ok cool. looks like you have the e. acicularis on backup already so you won't need any from over here. pretty sure the plant that pacific gets is grown emersed in those cups and then they submerge it in their tanks when they get it. sometimes they get them with flowers on it too, which I've never seen underwater. they just put some new tanks in the back of their shop (a long overdo update). Waiting for them to get some male endlers in for my edge. glad you didn't give up on the tank. it looks great cleaned!! these little tanks need crazy maintenance for them to keep looking good with high light over them. I'm sure the window shade is working wonders. sunlight can really get the algae going. for your bba have you upped your co2? I noticed a small tuft appearing on one of my rocks. It wasn't black though, it was light green but looked just like a bba tuft. I increased the co2 and everything is peaches now. You bleached your atomic diffuser right? I picked up an acid wash for my inline diffuser from GLA which is amazing. three drops of it cleans it pretty well if you let it sit for more than 30 minutes. I read somewhere not to use bleach on the atomic diffusers? I'm not sure what it does exactly to it though. anyway. co2 fluctuations can be a big issue too. another thing to keep maintained. lookin good. keep it up!
