That tanks a stunner!
Thanks Stu! That's quite a compliment coming from you- I love your work.

I thought I would add a couple pictures after I trimmed and finally got everything cleaned up.

Love this tank! You've done a great job of taking advantage of the dimensions.

I've been a bit busy but I do what I can with it here and there. It's more of a nuisance than anything. Fully carpeted with HC, hairgrass and I added some rotala to the back left corner where the intake its. It just seems to accumulate a lot of detritus....not sure why.

Interesting. Hope it pulls through!

Week 16 Update
Three weeks since the last update, things are still looking good. Increased growth, no big problems, and some new Fauna!
I contacted Rachel and had a great experience. I ordered 12 Boraras Naevus, 6 Corydoras Habrosus, and 3 Amanos.
These fish have been nothing but pleasure, I absolutely love the combination of their unique looks and personalities. The Corys are, however, my favorite.

It sure has been awhile! How's the Rotala doing? (if you still have any )
I stopped dosing Algaefix when my Fauna arrived- on the bottle it says that it's safe for fish but not for inverts. (Actually, I had otos in the tank while I was dosing, and they weren't affected.)

Thanks Freph! I can't wait until my HC fully carpets. It's taking awhile, but I kind of expected that because I started with so little.
Have you set up your 20L yet?

20L has been reset, yeah. Had an issue with hairgrass being horrendously invasive so I had to rip up and re-plant my D. diandra bush. Also a lot of my HC was infested with U. gibba so I only took the cleanest and healthiest patches and planted them. I've got like...7? small ones right now but they're doing well. It'll take longer to spread but the good thing about HC is that the growth is exponential. Plus, that tank resists algae very well so I don't even get algae on newly planted bunches or on exposed aquasoil even under high light.
