Quick update:

I am loving this tank/project! Very low maintenance - I have not done any fertilizing on this tank, only 50% weekly WC. The light is perfect for the plants I have in it.

My crypts are loving the dirt and have taken off and I'm seeing new growth and getting bushier.

Close up:


Algae is not a big issue, although I have some threads growing on the leaves closer to the light. A light brushing takes care of that.

Also, I noticed the other day a few baby MTS. I only added 5 a month ago, good to know they are prospering

I really would like to add RCS to this tank but my fear is the Platies and Guppies would make a quick snack of them.
