Since the last update this tank has gone through alot of changes...This is what happens when a hurricane wipes out a big tank of crypts and you cram them into your office tank...madness...
so it looks like a jungle...but my Cory's love it.
I've got a little bit of BBA but since I stopped all dosing its definitely gotten better.
I also constantly pick leaves off and the growth has just exploded.
My favorite plant the Latgenandra meeboldii "pink" looks better the more I hack leaves off...

A few changes...
I suspect that my lights were driving the system so hard and a lack of nutrients were the cause of the algae...staghorn and hair. I also think some outside sunlight was hitting the tank. But I'm not sure that sunlight is the culprit because I've had this tank for a few years and never had these problems.
So I started dosing a modified EI schedule.
I also pulled all the M. quadrifolia and put some in my emersed setup for later...then chopped up the Hygrophilia "kompakt" and spread it out.
I added my all-time favorite plant, 5 Ladenandra meeboldii from my 100g.
I added some fauna in the form of 6 Otocinclus vestitus and 24 Japonica shrimp that also aided in cleaning up the tank.
I am currently looking to add 15-20 cardinal or ember tetra's, 6-10 Corydorus sterbai, and 8-10 marble hatchets.

Sorry about no updates.
This tank has gone haywire...for 2 reasons I think...
reason 1...ambient sunlight hitting the tank...got lots of staghorn.
reason 2...no fast growing stems to suck up nutrients.
I'll update once I get things under control...or IF I get things under control...lol

I was looking at the pics today compared with the actual tank and the sand isn't as red as the pics make it look. Its funny what looks good to clients...
everyone loves it. I probably could have thrown some purple and pink fake plants in there with a castle and sunken ship and it would have gotten great reviews...lol

The weird looking plant is Hygrophilia pinnatifida...slipped it in there...wanted to see if you would notice...lol
As far as the gecko, give me a few weeks...
