Gary, all of that is there. You can't really avoid it all. I suck up visible mulm, and do top offs directly over the plants to shake any detritus off that may have settled onto the leaves. There are spots of BBA....I just trim off old leaves on occasion to keep them looking nice is all.

Thanks Kwheeler! At the moment, a lot of bronze corys are in there. You just don't see many of them. I had a CO2 dump a while back that killed most of my fish, and I just haven't replaced them yet. I'll need to soon.

Your tank is stunning! I am absolutely in awe!
Could you give me an idea of the emersed plants in photos 4 +7 in this post? And where I might find them for sale? They are gorgeous!

Hey UD! Thank you! I'm happy that my advice paid off for you! At least, it didn't destroy you, and I'll take that as a positive! :-)

Hi Autumn! Thank you for the compliments! Most of what you see growing emergent is Mexican Milkweed, Dwarf Umbrella Sedge, and Common Mint. I have some smatterings of others....such as: Hygrophila corymbosa that I let grow out of the water; alternanthera; and some Pilea species (Coral and "Aluminum plant"); Persicaria hydropiperoides; not sure if the mosses and creeping fig count or not!

You can get these either at your local garden center, other traders, or contact Devin at Riparium Supply and see if he has any of the species or not....I got the Pilea species, Mexican Milkweed, and Cypress Umbrella Sedge from him directly.

Hi Brooksie! Thank you! I'm grateful and flattered!
