Nothing much to say, but rotalas are growing and pearling and the HM is getting greener growth.

The algae on the crypt leaves are still a bit annoying, I have to wipe it off the leaves daily to prevent it getting choked; but it is not a major concern. Had to replant the crypts in the right side because I didn't plant it well the first time and everything was floating. The crypts are also melting, not too much of a concern for me.

I also found a way to get glosso to grow low: cut the long, tall runners and replant them. This is working BEAUTIFULLY!!

Other than the plants, I lowered the light and increased CO2. I am now dosing full EI. One thing I learned this week is that I hate floating plants more than dying plants.

I'll get some pictures once the water clears up from the Equilibrium.
