yeah, the dwarf hair grass is slowly thinning. The loaches are not grass friendly. The anubias and the kompakt is a good transition I think. Instead of the harsh grass to rock, it's now, grass, bush, then rock. It's a better transition, I think.

Oh, the the grass is collect mulm too. And then the algae grows on the mulm. So, it's not the easiest thing to take care of.

if my rotala decides to grow like I want it to, I'd like the tank to look like this.

It would look great like that! I like it already, though. How are the algae woes going?

I think the algae is under control as much as algae can be controlled. A week of excel and correcting the nutrients helped. The otos helped too but 2 of them died, as expected I guess.

I think my tank is overstocked too maybe but not too much.

That looks amazing! What variety of anubias is that, and do the leaves stay that small?

Everything looks awesome. Why don't you just get rid of the loaches?

It's like saying why don't you get rid of your kids
They're a pain but they let me pet them while I do my water change. THe hairgrass is now gone and the H. compakt has taken over and I just planted Staurogyne sp. 'Porto Velho'. They're staying so that's a good sign.

So nothing much to look at in this tank.. I got the case of BBA.



I'm doing excel right now.

On a good note.
The emersed Hygrophila corymbosa 'angustifolia' is flowering.

So you are actually going for the Excel, huh? I am wondering how many people that are 'algae free' also use a product like Excel. Would be an interesting study. The emersed growth is fantastic, are you going to give us a full tank shot or is this all we get, mistergreen? As strange as this sounds, BBA is very pretty in its own evil sort of way.

Everybody's tanks look so good lately, so I feel a bit envious.

The BBA has been defeated.



This tank is now running a UV 24/7. My tank can't go without it without getting taken over by brown and that black diatom algae that's not BBA. I'm not sure but growth is better ever since the BBA is gone, all parameters being the same, coincidence?


Full tank.


The dragon bones (rocks) are showing through. I'm playing this a smaller plant, Staurogyne sp. 'Porto Velho' on the front right. Hopefully they'll take off for me. Is Staurogyne repens another species from this?

The idea on making this design unified is the use of plants whose leaves are the variations on the spear shape. Forgive the Java Fern stuck on the rock. I'm growing it for my sister.
