Any plans to let it grow down the topmost rock and give it a weeping effect?
Thanks man! Sure, I want to see it! Lol

Not really, as the rocks are already blending in -- I want the HC to sort of frame the rocks rather than partially cover them, if that makes sense.

Do you have any fish? I see the cherries!
No problem. You're most definitely correct here. A key aspect to this issue is plant density and choice of plants. I was having algae issues before I added the blyxa and rotala to the tank -- these plants are much better at utilizing excess ferts than just HC and Eriocaulon species on their own. Since the addition of these plants, algae has curbed to essentially nothing.

No, I need to get some, I know! Yeah, the PFR are really nice but I'm getting ready to sell some and get some fish too.
