update:

so I trimmed the rotala on the right and the myrio on the left about 2 weeks ago, carpet is coming in nice, although I went away for 11 days over the holidays came back and my riccia and ludwigia arcuata was all melted away and i had to rip out some of the carpet in the middle back too it's looking a little bald, has some bga, the usual, not too bad, this sort of layout just needs time

also the rotala nanjenshen I planted to the right of the indica never really took, i planted a bunch of topped stems and they're just hanging on, it hadn't been ferted for 11 days as you can tell the indica is a bit yellow and the mayaca is a bit white, my next update will be awesome lol

Looks great. How are you getting the stems to grow so thick? It looks so dense and lush.
