I am about to move in a month.. so this tank is going to have to be redone once again. Pretty excited to have an excuse to change this substrate out.
Anyways, here is a couple update images.

Thanks GMY.

I decided to sign another 6 month lease with the apartments.. so I ended up just grabbing a new substrate top layer and some Ludwigia repens. Happy with the results.

Still alive and kicking.

Spotted a strange developmental mutation on one of my E. stellata plants yesterday.. the plant no long forms a node, but rather an endless spiral.. similar to a spiral staircase. Going to try and clone it next week see if I can't isolate it.

The spiral is pretty cool. I also like how your fish contrast.

Thanks.

Got some new riccia in foreground. Never have grown it before so we'll see how it goes. I'm going to try a few different areas in the tank to see what it prefers. Going to chop and do some minor recapping tomorrow. Might tie some to the wood.. not really sure yet.

Few shots before the chop:
