OK. Today I finally decided to start rebuilding. As you can see the tank was very out of shape. I had not done anything to it for at least 3 months. No CO2, No Trim, Nothing.
The HM has pretty much died off, however it will grow back. The Rotala walichii is gone, but that will grow back too. The Ammannia gracilis however stayed great and even showed better colors. The other rotalas seems to be fine as well. That weed you see all over the place was a pain in the ass to get rid of.
I restarted the DIY CO2, cleaned out the filter and all other mess. Trimmed, etc. I am not going to touch the tank at all. I feel confident that with the CO2 regoing and the tank clean, all of the plants will grow back on their own. It may look all dead but I will give it a shot. It will be interesting to see how things grow back, if they even do. I may end up having to get new plants, but I don't think I will.....
Enjoy the pictures...
