I've had 20 congos in my 265 and I've never seen them bother a plant. So it seemed odd to me that yours were eating them up.

Very healthy looking plants. Nice job.

Reworked the left side a bit and gave the plants a trim, things are starting to fill in a bit and I've added some new stems (p. erectus, ludwigia sp red, and ludwigia arcuata I think)

Oh and I...

The long grass in the back is Isoetes Lacustris. It gets quite tall, not a common plant in my experience.

Oh and I did change the lights, still using the LEDs but I supplemented them by tearing...

If you are looking for some low tech plants that require little maintenance I'd recommend crypt wendtii and anubias nana. Been good to me in the past along with java fern.

I had a QA for years and she always hid under driftwood. Beautiful fish, but maybe only saw her once every three months or so. It might be possible to manipulate the hardscape so that its hiding spot...

Just a quick update to say I went ahead and ordered three Tesla Sveltes with freshwater spectrums. OCreef has a sale on them currently, at $319.00 a piece. They should be here in about 2-3 weeks.
