Long overdue for an update... A few plant changes, no more vals, hairgrass, hygrophila, and p erectus. I have added t. fluv, some type of p stellatus narrow I think, x-mass moss, a couple buce's, A reiniki mini and fissidens attached to DW. Some more minor changes in plants. Fauna... golden ram eventually perished, I now have 5 pencil fish, 5 until they spawned and 2 survived my angels. 1 endler was added and seems to be ok, also added back a single white cloud. I also changed lighting, now have 2x finnex planted LED's.
Prior to this pick, the tank was exteremely overgrown, now also have some hair type aglae attached to DW and it keeps spreading despite proper CO2 (well I think proper, I keep increasing a small amount every 2-3 days.) and finally getting back to a regular fert schedule. Also as you can see in the last photo especially, GSA on the glass. Otherwise plants are flourishing, soon time for another trim.

|vvDO||Thanks, I bet they can't wait until I can upgrade to a 40B or 50.|

|GMYukonon24s||Sorry to hear about the casualties. You have some beautiful angels!|

Added a few... P. Erectus, H. pinnatifida, some limno (thin jagged leaves), downoi
Significant trimming yesterday, had to cut hairgrass down, it reached just past the upper wood.
Since last update, 1 golden ram died, cause unknown. 1 week later, 6 of 9 white clouds had jumped over a weekend while I was away... Maybe my feeder scared them or didn't feed them enough and angels started hunting. This was over a month ago and everything's been fine since.

I really need to update, only minor changes, trimmed hairgrass, added 2 more white clouds.
Video in my previous post isn't working for me, so here's the link...

Petco has a stand made for a 40B, may not be the best looking but it should do.
Here's a video...
2 Koi angels
3 golden long fin rams
7 white clouds (feeder quality)
Bought 6 Amano shrimp however I rarely see them

Damn heaters and their awkward sizes. If you put it in the back left corner horizontal behind the stems it might make your stems look a little fuller because it would push them forward a bit. The plants will find their way around it. It does look like a good setup as is though because with your outflow blowing on the heater you want get cold spots in the tank when the heater is on. Not that it matters a ton. Good looking tank though, the 20l has so much variety of planting styles. Probably my favorite tank size so far. I want a 40b pretty badly! Too bad stands for 40b are limited outside diy. :0
Some Anubias Nana petite would look great in the right side of the driftwood.

I like how this is evolving vvDO. You are getting some nice growth and ought to be hacking away at stems on a regular basis I expect.
Hey , why not hide the heater in back behind plants or the dw?

Tiz... Yes but sunken. Lol.
Aqua... Thanks, I bet it would look even better in a 40B.
