My tank is being run over by algae! I'm definitely seeing blue-green algae as well as algae all over the sides, but that's nothing my toothbrush can't handle .

The HC is FINALLY starting to spread a bit, I can see new bright green shoots from all over and there's a bit of creeping going on too, so hopefully it does well after I do my WC tonight or tomorrow. The hygro at the back's doing great and is loving the CO2 and high light. Repens is slowly starting to creep back up, and has shoots EVERYWHERE.

On a side note, I'm not too sure what the plant on the back right is, can somebody ID it for me?

-Unknown plant- is growing.. but unevenly, not how I anticipated it to be after my last trim. So, this time I'm going to let all of the stems grow out (ludwigia as well) and I'm going to try and cut the tops and replant those.

When I replant the tops, I'm planning on putting in a new hardscape, I've found some sweet rocks and put together a little mock hardscape on my desk, let me know what you think! Also, ignore the rock at the far back, I'm not sure if I'm going to be using it, as I don't see an appropriate spot for it. Also, keep in mind I'll be keeping the rock I currently have in my tank, as it has all my anubius wrapped on it.
