Looking good! I'm liking all the grass-like plants. Can't wait until it fills in.

so i did my water change today... added some flame moss to the branches... i think it will look nice when grown in... however i looked VERY closely to the branches to what looks like bba... and sure enough it is ... i dunno what i wanna do to clean it.. its small... but it has that bushy bba look... and i dont know whats cuasing it... i may increase the co2 but im afraid its going to stress out all my preggo shrimps and baby red rams i have running about

... any suggestions welcomed...

If you are worried about stressing your livestock I would pull the wood out and treat it in another tank. You can use Seachem Excel on the BBA then or H2O2 but it will damage your moss.

No need to wait till WC. Turn off filter/Powerhead etc no water movement and treat bba with H2O2, wait 15-20 minutes and you are good to go.
