I've found my anubias to be pretty forgiving if they get move around in the substrate. Like my various houseplants, I've found that the thicker the root, the less it cares if it's disturbed. It's the...

My Spec V is a couple weeks old, and I've been going through the same trial-and-error process. Either too much flow, or oil slick build-up on the surface. I prefer my flow as high as possible...

Beautiful tank - and a great sentiment. It can be daunting to see all these perfect tanks. It's like social media - people post themselves at their best, which can lead to a skewed vision.

WOW! What a great setup and beautiful tillies. Mine are relatively happy on my windowsill display, but you're motivating me to build them their own home. (Thanks for yet another project idea...ha!)

Looks great!

If you're anything like me, you'll quickly grow tried of pruning the water sprite!

You probably want to pull the anubias up a little higher, so that the rhizome is above the...

That's a happy plant!

When I do a water change, I tend to pour in the new water (which is cold out of the tap) on the left side of my tank. The two anubias on that side bloomed for me a couple...

If they are happy, they'll be spreading like crazy in no time. I think mine took maybe 3-4 weeks to settle in.

Mine grow like crazy, and get far too long. I give them haircuts on a regular basis,...

A large/tall piece of driftwood on the right side would help obscure some of that equipment, and add additional layered planting space for some anubias or mosses. Though, if you want to stick with...

I like my tank clean and orderly. Biggest regret: tossing a mat of riccia in there, which almost immediately separated and blew around everywhere.
