update:

so I trimmed the rotala on the right and the myrio on the left about 2 weeks ago, carpet is coming in nice, although I went away for 11 days over the holidays came back and my riccia and ludwigia arcuata was all melted away and i had to rip out some of the carpet in the middle back too it's looking a little bald, has some bga, the usual, not too bad, this sort of layout just needs time

Once this fills out and clears up it will look awesome. Appreciate the update.

Looks great. How are you getting the stems to grow so thick? It looks so dense and lush.
