Removed a small portion of s. Belem and brought tbe l. Sp red around further.... still not sure if I like the s. Belem in this tank.. on stem of the l. Sphaerocarpa is growing nice but the other stem the tip is kinda crinkled up looking...not sure why

S. Repens is starting to fill in a bit...will trim those in a couple weeks to get a more even growth.. need to trim the hc but feeling lazy

This spring im gonna change out my spray bar and intake line to something nicer...I hate how the spray bar is pushing my back stems forward. ..mainly the mini butterfly

Well decided to switch out my carpeting plant... I may have come back to hc but I want to see what marsilea crenata will look like... its leaf size isnt much bigger than e. Hydropiper. .its just a darker green... plan on pulling it up soon so if anyone wants to buy some hc give me a shout. . I haven't trimmed it in a couple weeks so it should be easier to plant

Tank is looking baller my friend. Once that GV fills in a little more and peeks out over that branch a little more I think it'll look stellar. Are you going to attach the buces on the driftwood or leave them planted on the substrate like that? Have you ever seen buce lamandau purple or green? Very similar to brownie types, but the leaves and structures are much smaller, making them a really good candidate for buce carpets.

Overall, everything looks grand though man, I really think you've got the background stems nailed for this tank. Them bushes are fluffy!

Thanks Josh

Han was griping about my handy dandy zip ties to tie the wood in place so im gonna do the barr method drill some holes for stuffing mini pellia or some mini fissidens in and eventually it'll cover it...probably just in time for me to rip it apart and scape it differently
