Maybe because you were adding the excel, the extra carbon source was what improved the health of the plants? I am not sure, but that is interesting if it is continuing and you are no longer adding excel. Maybe BBA is a major nutrient sucker? I like the tank, and I am glad you are moving out the java fern. I was going to tell you it was a little out of place.

Ok, update time,
I'm managing the BBA, one day at a time.



The foreground plant has grown in but the rocks are engulfed. I'll have to do some trimming.

I trim out handfuls of dead, algae covered leaves every week. I'm not afraid to trim in this tank.

IT DOESN'T LOOK LIKE YOU ARE!

That tank is overgrown! You need to give it a trim back so we can see those wonderful rocks of yours!

Plants are looking great. But I have to agree with an above post; more trimming! I really loved the original hardscape and would love to see more of it come through. Looking great though!

Mistergreen, your dragon got too fat this winter. I can't see his bones anymore. I like it even though the hardscape is engulfed.

All I have to say is these tanks do take away the winter blues. The light and plants trigger something in your brain.

Oh, I'll have to take pictures of the fishes. They're characters.
