Really nice. If the betta wasn't there for perspective I'd never guess the tank was a 2.5.

Thanks for the compliments, FlSH and Betta.

Here is an update on the emersed part. The Willow moss appears to be sending out flower stalks.

I just looped it around the piece of wood that sticks out of the water. In the summer I sometimes squirted some water on it, but now I just let it do its thing. Here is a picture from 8-16-10:

I like how you can see the betta lurking below the surface.

Since the plants have grown so lush, I had to move the Betta into my Mini M so he has space to swim in.

All of the algae is now gone.

I'm not surprised the algae is gone. With all those plants there must not be many nutrients left at all. Well done! Are you going to trim it so your betta can move back in?

I just removed most of the Blyxa, and I'm amazed how much was in there. Betta is now back in the tank. Sadly, all of my precious MP is dead from a lack of light.

Nope. I still have to decide if I just want mini micro sword in the tank instead of it plus Blyxa. Then I need to go do the actual planting.

Tank looks phenomenal. Everything looks so healthy. I may have passed it but what and how much are you dosing if any?

Thanks. I sometimes dose KNO3 and KH2PO4 roughly following the EI.

Since I gave away a lot of the Blyxa from this tank, I'm likely going to make a new scape.
