Don't fancy adding a cover, paradise fish are out!
WCMM I would love but I don't think they'd do well without water movement, I'm determined to do this without any tech aside from the lights.
I've removed all the Elodea. Wasn't feeling it at all, it's now just completely covered in duckweed with a few stems slowly emerging from behind the driftwood. I have some new plant ideas I'm excited about trying out but won't be much progress until after Xmas I'd imagine, too many presents to buy and blah blah blah.
Lots of life in the tank, few pond snails and random invertebrates.
Sorry for the slow progress it's just how I roll
