Thx. In the past i had altums in there and they where higher, the big ones are app 6 inches indeed. These are regular pterophyllums from peru (peru altum) and guyana (red spotted).

What are you going to do about the algae?? Looks pretty bad ATM. Wondering how you plan to deal with it.

I would zap that BBA with some hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), it'll clear it in a matter of days. Very nice and natural tank BTW.

First come the plants, having those growing wel and fast is most important. I am not bothered by the algae on the wood for now. Pumping in a lot of CO2 and ferts.

My personal preference would be to remove that driftwood piece on the right and add some colorful stems over there. But I still like it as is !

Came home to an empty CO2 tank (unexpected).
So i decided to go low energy for a while. Raised the lights to the ceiling (5 ft above the substrate), will add floaters. Only 2x 80W T5HO and 2 125 W HQI. See if this kills the BBA. Mostly swordplants in there so it should work.

update: lower light and lots of floaters. Trying to get a more natural feel.Liitle to no new algea, just some remaining BBA.
Lots less work, only give ferts 5 times a week and have continuous waterchanging on (app 50 liter /day).
In the end i want fewer plants in larger groups.
I have Hydrocleys nymphoides, Pistia, Ceratopteris pteroides, Phyllantus fluitans and Limnobium.
