Here it is as of now, about to be with shrimp added. I had to trim the hygro and got rid of most of the hair algae. I also switched from tap to a 50:50 of RO to tap.

Sorry for the instagram-ish looking pictures. They had a green tint for whatever reason and I wanted to edit it out for truer colors.

Oooh, I think I'll have to get on that. Thank you for telling me!

They got recalled but to be honest most heaters have the potential to blow up. I think I got it from Dr. Foster & Smith? I guess it's too late to get it replaced now...

Thank you!

Java moss, parva, wendetti, lucens, and hygrophila siamensis. (the wendetti is not doing so well for some reason)
