Earlier this month:
As you can see, things are stupidly over grown and despirate need of a trim. As well as half the tank is being taken over by thread algae. I started a blackout yesterday. Planning on a CO2 increase after a couple days of darkness and hope that takes care of it. Parameters are spot on and I stopped dosing ferts. Lighting schedule is the same as its always been. Any ideas?
Also need tips on trimming everything. Never have had any of these plants before (minus the various baby tears).

Looks great. I really have been thinking about buying this tank for awhile and this is inspirational.
You said you bought your plants from Oleg, is that OVT on the site? He is my favorite aquarium friend lol, super good guy, extremely intelligent but also hilarious with great plants too.

Planted some Hemianthus (Micranthemum) micranthemoides in the back. Also there's some Süsswassertang here and there in the tank as well. I'll be adding some more color to the tank in the coming weeks.

You can thank my bucket, an ottocat, one amano, and 2 cherries for their services.
As you can see I had a bit of everything growing in there when I came back, the most being diatoms I believe.

|tex627||Looks well executed! What are your plans for fauna?|

Nicely done contours =) I like how you executed the plantings too. Are you still planning on adding marsela in the top right corner? If not, maybe consider letting the micro swords fill into the upper left corner and transplant the s. repens in that corner to the right?
Looks really great either way... just can't help but see micro swords in that corner. The moss looks good trimmed in between the stones too.
