Thanks! The tank has gone through a lot of phases, the glosso took over, then my blyxa did, now the blyxa isn't doing so great and the crypts are taking over, sending out runners everywhere.
Where I once was not able to keep any shrimp alive in the beginning, I now have a thriving population that is still expanding.
My main focus right now is cultivating the HC, and possibly ridding the tank of glosso to make room for an hc carpet. If I can get the HC to take over I will probably remove all other plants and have a sleek HC iwagumi.
Deep down inside, we all just want a sleek HC iwagumi within an ADA set-up . . .
