Brownie brown, brownie blue, and fake catheriniae, I think. Kind of lost all of the ID's soon after planting them. It's been just about a year since startup to the last pic. I used a caribsea buffering substrate because the tank was originally planned for Indian white banded shrimp.

A delicious mix of clado and black beard algae, lol.
