Time to wage the war! 2liters of seachem excel vs. the BBA infestation of my tank. I have also raised my lighting, as well as decrease the photoperiod from a foolish 12 hours to a manageable 8 hours. Going to be performing more rigorous water changes to see about improving the water quality.

|synaethetic||I got the urge to switch back to my good ol' ugly spray bar, took out the algae ridden lilly pipe for a cleaning. Removed a good amount of moss, trimmed the HC, cleaned the glass . . . plan on trimming the stems down significantly and planting the tops. You can see my two types of rotala on the left growing. The more reddish looking of the two is not growing very well ... you can see how magenta the Macandra is on the right hand side of the tank, which leaves me wondering why my troubled stems are not growing very nicely. Too many off shoots, inconsistant color, etc. I may end up swiping it out for something that likes my conditions a little more.|

|Duck5003||Tank looks great! As much as i love Blyxa, i think the tank does look better without it. At least in the position it was. Great update though, cant wait to see that carpet filled in!|

|All that is Fishy||Great tank! Loved looking at it progress!|

|synaethetic||rescaped the tank a bit. Took out a lot of the blyxa and trimmed everything, moved all the anubis into better locations.|

To further emphasize the rate of growth, here is a shot from just a moment ago. You can see certain stems are almost 1/2-1" taller than earlier today.
Spotted some baby shrimp as well! Despite high c02 levels the shrimp are breeding still.

Full tank shot from this morning, right after the ray 2 turned on.
Too much blyxa! Things have started growing fast now that I am adding Excel daily to combat the BBA, which is disappearing.

Here is a crappy picture showing some of the growth lately.... things are moving along.

Thank's for the replies everyone. Yes I miss the crypts as well and it was a shame the BBA took them over, pulling them out was tough.
The macrandra is growing very quickly haha. Same with everything else, yikes. I really want to achieve that dense stem plant background. Going to be moving the anubis and rock with moss in a few days most likely.
