Thanks! It was coming along until I incorrectly applied the 1-2 Punch and killed off half my fish and made my carpet melt away.

Total fish loss is 1 BNP, 3 zebra oto, 2 reg oto, 7 rumy nose and 2 paleatus cory

Big update. Lots of changes.

I've moved since failing at the 1-2 punch. Moved everything over and did a large rescape. Moved about a year ago. Since then, my gold rams died (bad genetics I believe). Lost an angel (ate something bad and bloated) and I acquired a pair of WC atabapo sevrums. Being that they were wild, they saw my rumynose tetras as a tasty snack. So now I'm down to 1 of them. I just picked up a HUGE piece of driftwood and finally got around to adding it to the tank last night. Did a big plant pull which resulted in this thread.

So my tank went from this:


to this:


I still have some planting to do on the left side to fill in the bare spots but I wanted to let it clear up more before I do. Pulling plants in a dirt tank (especially crypts) makes for a mess.

I do have this to use to fill in the bare spots so I think I'll be set
