thank you.
the anubias is starting to bug me a bit though. the nerite is doing an AMAZING job cleaning off the GSA thats on the older foilage (this is my first plant ever, so its been through a lot), but the thing is, the spots have been covered so long, the leaf directly underneath is yellow. so i traded green spots for yellow spots, which are more noticeable.
ill give it a few months to color back up. if it doesnt, ill use it in the betta barracks (dimmer lighting should make it less apparent) and put something else as a background in here.

anyway, i replanted the UG so heres some more pics:

Nice tank, love the 2-angle design and hearing about it on the AB radio show. How many stems/crowns of Downoi did you start out with? Looks really good.

Don't take that monster petite out! It must be pretty happy in there. I say trim off the leaves with yellow spots. It should spur more growth.

took your advice and cleaned up the anubias instead of replacing it. still undecided, but for now im feeling happier about it. the UG really has been taking its time for some reason, so i bumped up the CO2 a touch, but now its almost grown back in.
some android cellphone pics of the tank:

thanks. the thing i like most is that they are 2 significantly different shades of green. there are too many nano iwagumis with all 1 shade of green. i was initially considering e. belem instead, but then realized that its the same color as the downoi.
