Just a quick update. Here is the hardscape with water in the tank but only one light is on.

Here is a small update. I have planted most of the plants and things are looking good. The crypts have started to melt a little but one or two of them are already sending out new leaves.


I did change up the plants a little but here is a list of what is in the tank now.

Cryptocoryne Parva
Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Green'
Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Mi Oya'
Anubias Nana 'Petite'
Anubias Nana
Echinodorus ‘Tanzende Feuerfeder’
Rotala roundifolia
Rotala nanjenshan
Microsorum pteropus 'Narrow'
Microsorum pteropus

Here is a new update.

I had a few outbreaks of Green Hair Algae because I did not have my CO2 and lighting right. I had too much light and not enough CO2 so I cleaned the algae away and increased the CO2 from 2 drops per second to 4 drops per second and the change was like night and day.

I have tons of new growth and will post some new pics this weekend but here is a list of plant growth per species.

Cryptocoryne Parva - No new growth tho it seems that it is adjusting well.

Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Green' - Has melted and is throwing up about 1-2 new leaves a week.
Cryptocoryne wendtii 'Mi Oya' - This was the first plant to really bounce back. It is growing like a weed.

Anubias Nana 'Petite' - The emersed leaves are dying but it is also shooting out a new leaf or two a week.

Anubias Nana - Throwing up a new leaf a week but still has some emersed leaves.

Echinodorus ‘Tanzende Feuerfeder’ - I am amazed with these plants. They have almost doubled in size and have gone from small rounded leaves with the total plant being about 6 inches to having nice dark greenish/reddish/brownish leaves and almost a foot in new growth. I am getting about 3 leaves a week from one plant and about 2 a week from the other.

Rotala roundifolia - Started out with lots of green but is now turning red and looking good.

Rotala nanjenshan - Very nice growth. I have noticed that the tips are starting to turn red as well.

Microsorum pteropus 'Narrow' - gone from three clumps on the center piece of wood but have now grown almost completely together and looking nice and green.

Microsorum pteropus - Truthfully no new growth. It appears to be having issues switching from emersed growth.

I want to start dosing ferts but have no idea where to begin. Any thoughts?

Right now there are only a few Oto cats but also we have been cross breeding guppies so a few(about 40) were released into the tank. Here is a pic of one of the males.
