Your tank looks so much bigger than a 10 gallon.
Are you going to keep the HM trimmed to just that little bush or are you going to let it carpet? IMO I think this tank would look fantastic with a full HM carpet :S

Definitely would like it to form a carpet. I have only trimmed the height once or twice before, that's all. If I had an actual CO2 system and/or fert dosing then I'd probably have a good carpet by now. Still, it is slowly, but surely, creeping along the substrate.

Trimmed the HM a day or two ago. The RRF really propagates quickly. I'll probably be selling a fairly large floating plant bundle for a six bucks tomorrow on this forum if anyone is interested in some RRF, Water Lettuce, Frogbit, and Duckweed (unavoidable).

You should be able to find some great deals on plants within the For Sale section of this forum, along with the For Sale sections of other aquarium forums. May take a bit of time to find the good deals, but they do come along.

And thank you for the compliment!

That riccia is taking off. Looks beautiful as usual.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

Looks really great. What's your plan for the riccia? Also, your HM is getting close to trim time, I think.

Thanks.

For now, I am just letting the Riccia grow. Maybe I'll make a Riccia only tank once it is big enough to distribute.

Yep, HM is definitely a giant bush now. Will be trimming that whenever I have time to do so.
