I love the look of the stump with all the anubias! Very nicely done.

Thanks!

There is some Anubias growing emersed too, but it is hard to see due to the tape:

Found my first female Lemon as she just developed her eggs a couple days ago. The males have been going wild trying to find her.






One of the many male shimps:

Yesterday I found out I had a RCS hitchhiker in this tank. Luckily it was still young and I was able to siphon it out of the tank. Note to self: wash plants from other tanks before using them in this tank.

I'm tempted to begin removing the tape holding the DW down. From my past experience with it, it took around 3-4 months before it was safe to do so, but that was when the DW was fully submerged.

Wow, a comment!

Here ya go:
I removed all the tape holding down the DW except for one piece. Now the Blyxa on the left should be receiving enough light.

Amazing anubias tree, seriously awesome. I like the white sand in the front, dont let the MM cover it up too much

The tank will look awesome when the MM fills up. It compliments the Anubias really well.

Did you get any female yellows? When was the last time you top off your tank?

I had one female but I am quite sure I accidentally siphoned her up during a WC as I saw a glimpse of something when dumping the water out. What are left look to be males only.

I had to keep the water level low when I had the straw holding the wood down. I removed that today so I can finally fill the tank up more to my liking.

Seems my Blyxa will not survive. Not positive why they refuse to grow as I had success with the plant in the previous scapes. The good news is that the MM has spread to the left-back side of the tank.

I'll try to get new pictures this week.

This is really a cool little setup. I like that way you used that 'Petite'.
