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:

glossostigma elatinoides
bacopa australis
lobelia cardinalis 'small form'
marsilea hirsuta
bacopa caroliniana
anubias nana
cryptocoryne wendtii 'Tropica'
pogostemon helferi

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.
i really like your tank a lot! maybe you can try replace the baby tears by monte carlo?

AquaAurora 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')


My view('back')


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.

dirtydonato Here is an update of my low iron 12g long. This has been in the dry setup for over 6 months now just because I have been moving places and it would be to hard to transfer once
I fill it. The carpet is beautiful and perfect.

I am so happy everytime I see the tank. It truly is a art peice.
And thank you MsNemoShrimp for the stickers!!! I love them!

I'll wait till they stretch it to the 47.7" like the 75G.

47.7 X 11.8 x 11.8
I was actually considering building a tank like that, I mocked it up with cardboard and it looks very nice. Super long, and very skinny.

Depends on your scape but should be plenty. With that volume, should put you at a substrate depth of just over 2 1/4" flat.

My current thought is 1 9L bag and I will also be getting a 2L bag of power sand. I just don't want to get to that point and be limited by the amount of substrate. Thanks
