I could use some advice/tips for aquascaping. I hate how it looks currently and I need to get some wood or rocks to add some more depth/balance to the tank.
There hasn't been much going on with the tank. I'm starting to see runners from the DHG I planted a few weeks ago, and its now bright green, except for a few dead leaves.
The tank is still cycling, nitrites are about 3-4ppm, but my nitrates are skyhigh... when I tested last night the tubes color was bright red. I did a 50% water change last night, and plan on doing another 50% tomorrow morning.
My ludiwgia repens looks like its doing poorly. The bottom half of the plants have BBA (i think) and all the leaves are melting. So, last night I trimmed them and replanted the top healthy portions of the stems and I'll keep the dying bottom stems for a few weeks to see if they recover at all.
I have 2 crypt wendtii green plants which have almost completely melted. Each plant has 1 leaf , but I hope they make a comeback. It was one of my favorite plants
