My fluval ebi has been running for over a year now, but the last few months it hasn't looked it's best. Perfect time for a rescape after seeing all the beautiful nano cubes, floras and Ebis! Let me know what you think!

The tank is experiencing an ammonia spike at the moment so all the inhabitants are elsewhere. Last reading was 0.50 ppm. Only added about 3 - 4 cups worth of ADA so hopefully things will be back to normal soon.
What does everyone think of the wood? It was bigger than I thought it would be. At first I tried it vertically, but it just didn't look right. I like how there is a mini cave for the shrimp.
Never had any moss either so maybe some for the wood? Also thinking of adding some of those thinner twisted branches at the back right corner. Perhaps arching over the top? Thoughts?
If anyone had tips on how to use Staurogene Repens as a carpet please share. I've never had a carpet plant before. The stems like to float up! Thank you Bien for the wonderful plants.
I'm loving the clover-like Marisilea. I'm not sure what kind this is.
Would like thoughts on what plant to put in the right back corner. I'm looking for something fluffy, but not Cabomba.
Wow! Very nice setup. I love the marsilea in that corner. It looks like minuta but could be a larger variety, not sure.
Are you planning to add branches in addition to the stump? I like it the way it is, maybe tie some moss on top of the stump with fish lines.
Nice! that wood looks epic
I was thinking of adding a few of the branches so it arches over the top starting from the bottom right. Maybe some moss hanging over it?
I have seen someone gluing s.repens on driftwood. I was thinking of trying that.
Usually when Marsilea species are grown submersed, their leaves take on a single rounded shape. I only see one of those. If that plant is truly submersed-grown and has been for a while, then it may be M. quadrifolia based on the fact that most of the leaves are still clover-like. That being said, are you supplementing CO2 at all?
It looks too tall to be M. minuta (at least based on my experience), but I'm not familiar w/ the Ebi lighting setup.
Nice!! Here's my EBI, It's only been up for about a month. :) It's got some moss, ferns, anubias, floaters, a load of cherry shrimp, some CRS/CBS, and an oto. Still letting things fill out before I do a real scape.
I got one of these On the way. Can't wait to set it up. Yours looks great it gives me some ideas.
Thanks. Never heard of rootmedic. I guess it's working quite well for you. Do you dose excel in place of Co2?
As far as excel, I haven't really dosed it much at all. I'm a little worried it will kill my weeping moss or harm the shrimp, the fact that is smells a little like bleach doesn't ease my mind lol.
I don't mind the smell excel. I hate prime though.
Added the white clouds back into their home and also some narrow leaf java fern and a few more S. Repens.
Closer view of wood. Stuck some S. Repens into the crevices. Hoping it will grow.
Does anyone know if shrimp will eat the white slime off of the wood? I really don't want to have to take it out and scrub it every time.
I'm thinking of adding some Rotala rotundifolia to hide the filter and heater, but I'm afraid I won't have enough space.
Yeah, I had white slime growing on my driftwood while my tank cycled. As soon as the cherry shrimp went in, they started gobbling up the stuff and the driftwood is pristine now.
Most likely fungal spores, yes shrimps love it :)
