During the 6 week process of packing and moving I neglected the tank badly. I had some algae problems and I wanted something different so I got rid of a ton of stuff.
Sticking to slower growing species now. I have a long term plan that requires more anubias and ferns so I want room for them to grow
That's understandable. I know how much of a pain moving can be.
The tank still looks beautiful even without the stems. Sometimes (actually all the time) I wish I would have went with slower growers in my recent tank but I do love all the colors of stem plants.
