Yeah I knew it would be around medium-high par. I plan on breaking the tank down soon and completely rescape along with getting a proper co2 setup instead of just dosing excel. Appreciate the advice!

Yeah let them grow out a little and you should be able to pick them off. You could always do a RAOK on here if you want to get rid of some or take it to a LFS and they might give you credit.
