Thanks, that little middle section has been a bit hard, its not very deep so its hard to get anything to root in there but i have a few different ideas.

been a while, still packing in stems in the the background to make it more dense, maybe one more big trim and plant and i can start cutting for the 'bush like' effect as opposed to a hedge

Post trim 15 days ago


how its sits right now, ready for a trim, i did remove the h.c from the middle finally, fissidens mini is squashed in the s.s so that should look good in a month or so


Quick pic of my shrimp breeder tank, only a few shrimp now, mostly amanos. Want to make sure the tank is well cycled and no contaminated before adding more sensitive species.

Why you remove the HC Cuba? It would look awesome growing in the middle.

i agree but the bristlenose pleco kept harassing it so it wasn't growing well/getting uprooted.. if i could catch the dang thing i would replant the h.c. I did try some monte carlo in that spot but after a few days it was all floating.

This has a new scape, likely start a new journal for it once i flood it, but for now its in dsm so the fissidens can attach. here are the last shots before the tank came down.

really overgrown and neglected a few weeks back



I took the myrio out while i played with new scape ideas, really brighten up the tank taking that weed out


breaking things down


Test filling, making sure everything will stay put etc.


Drained and dsm for the next few weeks.

went ahead and flooded the 60p earlier this week.
started getting cyano from to much moisture around the substrate so flooded it before it got out of hand, been blasting co2 + high nitrates while churning the soil every day killed it off, did a large w/c to lower nitrates and get the water params in check. luckily most the fissidens stayed attached to the wood.
