Both of my current issues can be seen in this photo.

1) the nearly half-inch worm in the center of the frame. There are a lot of these guys. I dosed some fenbendazole last week and it seems to have done nothing, dosed a stronger solution today. We will see if it works...

2) GSA! I'm sure my anubis cannot handle their current location in the scape, receiving direct unblocked light. My phosphates are good, I'm almost postive it's due to my lights being too close.

Have you been feeding blackworms?

I've never stocked this tank, only otto's and the cherry shrimp.

I have only ever fed hikari shrimp granules and algae wafers.


After the 2nd dose of the dewormer two days ago; they appear to of been wiped out. Might add a little more next week just in case.


The GSA on my anubis is getting worse. I need to relocate them to a shadier portion of the tank, or ditch them all together for high-light only plants.

A week ago I added some rotala macandra and hygro-something, I cannot remember what it was labeled as. The rotala has adjusted well, the other is taking some more time.

Blyxa should be boucing back, here is a reference shot from when the tank was dominated by the blyxa back in august of 2012.


The new stems should add some more variety of texture and color to the scape. My next move may be to add more stems in place of the growing java fern, and remove the rest of the crypts. They started as tiny plantlets... now they have spread and reached the surface, pretty much taking over the tank. I like the look of all stems, and trimming to allow more depth to the scape.

Exclamation

Hello everyone!

Here's an update on how this tank is doing at the moment. I've been photographing this tank with my smartphone and while the pictures are decent, they are nothing to that of my DSLR, which I am temporarily unable to use. So I apologize for the lack of quality with these.

The rotala has taken forever to adjust to my aquarium; almost half of it has melted away/never taken root, although my dosing has been consistant and everything else is doing fine. I am also uncertain of what kind of rotala this is, it was listed as macandra but doesn't quite have the broad leafs.



FTS:



The HC is doing great:


ive trimmed a portion to show the density it's achieved. I'd like to propagate it throughout the whole foreground, which would mean no more glosso.

The glosso is looking good, right now its about 1cm in height with it's fresh new growth popping up after trimming a week and half ago:



Looking for plant ID: This broad leafed plant here in my background is beginning to grow very quickly. Lots of new shoots formning on the tallest one. It was listed as hygro- something, does anyone have an idea?


The anubis nana has been doing well, in this image below you can see my two thickets, the one on the left has been recently replanted in a more neat, precise manner, composed of 7 individual rhizomes. The patch on the right, which is more shaded and develops less GSA is composed of about 5.

your plant ID I believe is hygrophila corymbosa 'angustifolia'. It can grow fast and very large if you let it. And the tank is coming along nicely, growth in here is amazing!

If you plan to propagate the HC more, you want to pull the glosso ASAP, especially out of the HC as I see some of it doing.. It invades HC really aggressively....found that out the hard way.

Yes the glosso will be getting torn out sooner than later.

It does invade the HC, but the runners have thus far been easy enough to remove. It is tedious though, not nearly as tedious and invasive as the java moss has been.

The java moss is everywhere, under the glosso, random parts of the tank, etc. Little pieces find their way everywhere and proceed to grow with out problem. Annoying!

The tank is looking really great. Very cool to read through all the post and see everything transform.
