Yes i have about 27 seperate anubias petite rhizomes in the foreground. Last time i had about 14 in the first video. I still plan to get maybe 10 more or so at a later time. Since the last update i added more golden anubias nana and more java fern.

Great looking tank. Anubias is an awfully pretty plant.

Did a water change today and rearranged things around and removed all the algae on the leaves that i could. Here are a few pictures of the tank.

I do water changes twice a week. While doing water changes i scrape with my fingernails the leaves softly to remove any visible algae. It rarely shows up since i have good flow in the system. The petites are the hardest to keep algae free. Removing the algae on them takes a lot longer due to such small leaves. I am glad i found a dosing schedule that has allowed plants to flourish well and stay lush. It took many combinations to see what worked best with the system.

I dose microbe life bloom and grow and flourish excel the day of water changes. After that i add excel every other day. Flourish trace and comprehensive done twice a week the day after a water change, Flourish iron done once a week, Flourish Potassium twice a week, Flourish Nitrogen once a week, flourish phosphorus once a week. I slightly adjust what gets done less and more every week tampering with different combinations. But that usually would describe the dosing regime. I am currently looking forward to get a thick carpet of petites. Might buy a few more to help speed the process.

This is honestly one of my favorite tanks here. I might have to steal your idea and try this with a 10 gallon that I'm setting up.

Wow, that's a lot individual rhizomes. My tank became Anubias-dominated too but by accident, and not to the same extent as yours. Great job, gorgeous looking.
