The crypt parva is three times the size of the anubias petite, but i think it can be trimmed down to smaller size. As for the mini pellia i think its just dirty if your seeing yellow in it or i could have dose excel on it to kill some algae. Mini pellia is vibrant green imo.

update pic i removed rotolla vietnam, also lowered my light to 4 inches from water line.
added CRS SS

Sorry if you have talked about this before. How did you hook your ada 13mm inflow pipe to the 16mm inflow elbow of the Eheim 2217? Did you use a reducer? Do you have any cavitation or air in the canister problems? Thank you for your journal.

Niptek,

It's been great watching your skills and tank evolve over the years.

Really excellent work here, bravo!

Will you enter into IAPLC?

shifted drift wood, removed a few plants, and added some chili rasbora.
ADA soil is still holding up for 3 years old. It may be time for replacement.

I added ADA multi bottom. we'll see how that works out.


Plants:
Fissiden fontanus
Glossostigma
Crypt wendtii "brown"
Anubias nana petite
Mini pellia
Ammania bonsai – (true rotala indica)
Limnophila aromatica ‘broad’
Bolbitis heudelotii

Fish:
10 Boraras brigittae
40 CRS SS
2 Otocinclus Vittatus
1 Assassin snails

Yeah. An update once a year is fine, as long as it's a good one.
