You say you "keep your GH at 8"....does that mean you dose something, or is this the hardness of your tap water ?

If you "reboot" with very soft water, you will run out of Ca and Mg.
I notice in my low-tech tanks that Ca+Mg actually gets used up faster than anything else (except maybe potassium). I like to keep...

I don't think the mound needs to be higher, just thin down the sub towards the front glass and generally slope it more towards the back. The perspective will probably be better.

I would probaly have made a minor counterpoint with a small wood piece at the other golden point.

Also, Elodea densa does the same thing as vals. They melt shedding a lot of their small leaves. Then it seems they adapt and are okay after that.

Just a word of caution : Fish tb will infect humans through any small hole/rift in the skin and lead to quite nasty sores and infections. So use gloves when working in the tank if tb is suspected.
