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).

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.

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.

minicrazy592 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.

You can thank my bucket, an ottocat, one amano, and 2 cherries for their services.

As you can see I had a bit of everything growing in there when I came back, the most being diatoms I believe.

Haven't decided just yet. Something small below 1". I may move over my Dario Dario assuming he pairs up with what hopefully out of the two others is a female. If not, some kind of small schooling fish along the lines of a Raspora or tetra.

Looks really great either way... just can't help but see micro swords in that corner. The moss looks good trimmed in between the stones too.
I haven't decided just yet what I'm going to do in that corner. I have Hemianthus (Micranthemum) micranthemoides, Stargrass, and Giant baby tears coming in on Monday to work with. I also have plenty of runners to snip from the 12g of the MM, so we shall see what I decide to do.
