So, this is my tank 1 week from my last trim. Quite a bit of detritus in the front of the tank, and I can see a bit of blue-green algae growing in the front... so I'll be doing a thorough cleaning with my gravel vac soon.

Does anybody know why my HC might be dying? I thought it would love CO2 and high light . On the other hand, my Alternanthera reineckii is doing a lot better than before, as I can see the leaves opening up nicely. The leaves are a bit fat though, is this natural, or am I lacking some nutrients? The hygro and anubias are loving the current conditions.

Additionally, why is my ludwigia repens growing in a bit horizontally instead of vertically? Should I wait for it to grow out, and then cut the stems and replace the old stems with the new cuttings to get more vertical growth?
