New update.
Hope you like at least some parts of my tank.
As I wrote before algaes are still present, but much less than 2 weeks ago.

New fish to arrive in a week time. My CPDs , 15 pygmy corra, few ottocinkus, 2 more platy.

Looks like everything is coming along really well. Only comlaint I have is the boundary between the foreground and the rocks. I really like where you have the glosso creeping up into the rocks. Personally I would do that for the whole length of the tank where hc meets rock. It helps unify the foreground with the rest of the scape and gives the whole thing a better sense of depth. That's just my opinion but I think it would really put a nice touch on an already fantastic scape.

HC and Glosso are still growing, so I let it grow and don't trim too much yet.
Remember that i filled tank with water only last month.

Generally I want to have that boundary effect as low as possible, with few exceptions, where I have a plan for another higher grass ( it is difficult to spot it right now, and in few places, where I want moss to grow.

On the right end of the tank I'm waiting for eleocharis vivipara to grow, to cut it and plant beside existing plants.

Welcome back on my page after over 1 month absence.
Work, , work, work , work and work stopped me from browsing my favorite forums.

I was also away for some time and had no chance to look after my aquarium.

I'm very dissapointed with my JBL e1501. It is sucking air from somewhere , I tried seal everything I could, but still no luck. It is really a nightmare to open bucket on daily basis and pump it hardly. I think I will return it and get some decent eheim.
