This is looking great! Dont worry too much about the rocks. It looks good. Can I ask for the name of the leaf plant in the middle in between the rocks? I've never seen that before and I'm interested in it. Thanks!

Edit: I'm guessing Staurogyne repens and anubias nana petite?

Yep stauro is in the middle with the anubias tucked amongst the rocks around it.

No more algae on plants, still have some brown algae on the tank walls. Tried doing a white background (paper) and well I think it looks better without a background.



I also decided that I need more light in the back of the tank so lighting will be upgraded some time next week.

Just added a Ecoxotic 8000k Panorama module and wow. Its brighter than the 32 watt pc I have in there. Within minutes after I installed the light the stauro started pearling. I'll post pictures tomorrow.

Great work! Dig it. I have an Eclipse 6 that I'm looking for motivation to convert to a planted nano. Very nice!

Beautiful! Very nice carpet. Is it UG? Sorry for the noob question but I'm not very familiar with it.

Yes it is UG and I got the stauro from SnS here on this forum. Unfortunately I have no pics as the power supply for the LED module already blew . So far still waiting for ecoxotic to contact me back about the power supply otherwise I'll just buy the power supply from somewhere else. Kinda annoying but its only a 12 dollar part.

So the new lily pipes finally arrived, along with some blyxa (which is pearling in the pic).



Shot of the hood now.


Random shot of the mess my equipment is since I still don't have a proper stand to hide it all.


Pretty happy with the way everything is going. Still fighting brown algae on tank walls and starting to see some green algae growing on my rocks.
