Thanks! I'm leaving on Monday and won't be back until august, so hopefully I'll see some nice growth when I return!

Looks great! The only thing i dont like are the two manzy branches going from the bottom middle to Top corners, detracts from the focal point IMO

Thanks! Without those two pieces like that, the layout looks too flat and one-dimensional. My hope is that as the Java Fern grows in, the tops of those particular pieces won't be seen; and the bottoms will add to the dimension.

Diatoms will go away on their own. If you're sure you've also got cyanobacteria, you could mist the substrate with Maracyn-Two. If it's just green dust algae, spot treating with Excel while everything is still in dry start will probably do the trick.

I'm pretty sure it's cyanobacteria. I'll try that, good idea!
