Well it's been almost a year so I thought I would update my journal. I've made lots of changes. Added an s repens carpet, a nice bush of rotala, and recently added some Rotala wallichi and ar mini. I also upgraded the lighting by adding a Finnex planted + along with the old Marineland double bright.

Update after rescaping. I'm still not happy with the background. I've added s repens in the foreground, some sunset hygro which grows like a weed [emoji13] and a fefew stems of ludwigia sp red.

Wow! Your tank has grown in nicely and looks great!
As far as the rescape - I think its due for a nice trim. You may choose were the plants look best, I would personally swap the two plants in the back left.
It would look really neat and add a lot of depth if you add like an open area(like a break in the foliage) in the back; looks like you've already achieved this, but develop it a little more!
Overall, I think it looks lush and almost dutch-ish! Nice job!

Update before a major trim. I know the scape is a mess but I've finally got everything balanced and my plants are growing well and algae is down to a minimum. I really need to do a rescape and have been looking at other tank journals trying to get some inspiration. Any suggestions are welcome

|NCSteve||Thanks. I'm just using pps pro ferts, modified slightly and iron. Doing nothing special for the anubias. It's just doing its thing on the driftwood.|

|Chafire||Tank looks good Steve! Plants all look really healthy. That's awesome that your anubias flowered. Do you use any kind of root supplement or just sticking to the EI method?|

I've added a SunSun 403 cannister filter and upgraded the Co2 to a 5 lb bottle. The regulator seems to perform much better since ditching the paintball tanks.
Plants added: Lobelia cardinalis dwarf and Rotala Mexicana arguaia
My Anubias finally flowered for me!

Here's an update on my tank....the Blyxa is turning into a jungle but I've just acquired a 29g tall that will get lots of it when I start setting it up. I've added Limnophila aromactica, purple cabomba and ludwigia Atlantis to the background. I've got a bunch of crypts in the middle that will also go into the 29 and my erios is getting huge. I'll do a rescape on this tank once I get the 29 up and running so I can clear out some plants. I started using dry ferts about 2 months ago and still getting that balanced but I think I'm close. I have a little algae here and there but keeping it at bay for now. Thanks for looking...
