Planted some Hemianthus (Micranthemum) micranthemoides in the back. Also there's some Süsswassertang here and there in the tank as well. I'll be adding some more color to the tank in the coming weeks.

Looks great. I really have been thinking about buying this tank for awhile and this is inspirational.

You said you bought your plants from Oleg, is that OVT on the site? He is my favorite aquarium friend lol, super good guy, extremely intelligent but also hilarious with great plants too.

That's the one! He is quite the character. He told me in one of his PMs about some runnings with some scantily clad women in Houston. I got a nice kick out of it.

He is a character for sure. I have only met up with him 3x I think but he is a super cool dude. His tanks are amazing, even though he doesn't really scape them.

That's one impressive turn-around from an algae disaster, good job. Nice design on such a small tank.

Thanks!

Earlier this month:



And now.



As you can see, things are stupidly over grown and despirate need of a trim. As well as half the tank is being taken over by thread algae. I started a blackout yesterday. Planning on a CO2 increase after a couple days of darkness and hope that takes care of it. Parameters are spot on and I stopped dosing ferts. Lighting schedule is the same as its always been. Any ideas?


Also need tips on trimming everything. Never have had any of these plants before (minus the various baby tears).
