Well scratch my comment about an update photo... I bought dwarf baby tears on coco fiber mats.. but they were wrapped in a metal frame that was not ss.. the seller swore up and down that it was shrimp safe and they had kept it in shrimp tanks.. within a few days 1/2 the colony was dead and the live ones were huddled by the surface as far from the metal as they could get (on penny wort and pygmy chain sword).. so not a happy camper right now.. want to rip that lieing sack of [censor] seller a new [censor] but their site is locked down because of "a family emergency" atm... =.= So now I have a tank of possibly soon to die shrimp, otos, and dwarf puffer (don't know how sensitive the fish will be to the metal) and a big ugly bare 'front' from lack of a carpet... and I'm out over $60 on that wasted death trap.... AAARRRRGGGGGGGGG
ok I'll stop venting...

raise the outflow/return close to the water surface. It should create some surface agitation.

Question: What do people with a 12g do for surface skimmers? I really don't want to put anything bulky in the tank, and with the light so close to the surface, my usual solution of using an air stone at night for a couple of hours isn't very feasible. Any suggestions?

12G Update - Baby Tears Fail, Replaced with Glosso / Marsilea Update to tank. It's
12G Update - Baby Tears Fail, Replaced with Glosso / Marsilea
Update to tank. It's been running for a while now, but I just couldn't get the baby tears to work out. They were growing fine, but were covered by this brownish-green hair algae that only grew on them and no other plant I had. The algae would cover the baby tears and prevent them from rooting into the ground.
Rather than exhaust myself with that, I removed the baby tears and switched to mainly glosso to see what It'll do.
Plants in the tank:
lobelia cardinalis 'small form'
cryptocoryne wendtii 'Tropica'
The light is at 75% intensity and the drop checker is borderline yellow, but the fish are happy so I'm leaving it. Hopefully this'll work and I'll get plant growth that isn't baby tear covered with algae.

So the husband's 12g long (I take care of) had turned into a wild mess from lack of trimming back, everything was tangled and growing together and there was an insane amount of floating riccia.
last tank shot before the re-scape (my seat's view).
Re-scaped this past Friday.. took 12 hours (with breaks to eat and such) from starting to catch shrimp to releasing them after re-acclimation.
OMG I CAN SEE THE OTHER SIDE OF THE TANK NOW!!
husband's view ('front')
More info and progress photos on the rescape are in the 12g long journal (liked in sigy).
edit: i plan to buy more ss mesh and tie down that last giant blob of riccia.. also need t replant the few floated up stems in the shot.
