Small update... I need to post some pics soon...

Cabomba really starting to overtake the tank now. This stuff grows fast in this nano. First time I've tried out this plant and it looks nice. Moss growing in a little bit as well. I can see the mini xmas moss starting to grow above the mesh on the rocks finally.

I'm also starting to notice some Diatoms on the driftwood as well as some hair algae on the Anubias

The tank is still cycling... gotta love the waiting game. I stopped keeping track for a few days, but still kept adding a little bit of Ammonia everyday. I tested yesterday and everything was 0's so I brought it back up to 4ppm Ammonia last night

Ammo: 0.75ppm
Nitrite: 0.25ppm

(Added 4ppm Ammo yesterday morning)
Ammo: 2ppm
Nitrite: 0ppm

Ammo: 0.25ppm (adding 3-4ppm Ammo)
Nitrite: 0ppm

Who would have thought that plants like dirt?!
