whoa! there's fish in there!
The fish is like..
now what ..
yea, that patch we were fighting for yesterday? all gone!!!
They are normally out an about but lately they are schooling more so might have to check my ph probe for drift. I think my daughter is out of frame on the first pic and scared them into hiding.
I actually like the trimmed look much, much better.
The detail is impeccable. The rock, the texture, the color.
The fish enhances this intricacy.
I too enjoy the trimmed look, this one was a little excessive but it was getting too overgrown and slow growers were being affected by algae on old growth. Bonus is that I wonít have to trim during the summer too much and can enjoy other things.
Those S. Repens should come back, may take a bit, but I've done the same without issues.

That is good to hear, I have cut the entire stem off at ground level and they came back once before, I am only concerned since they were already stressed and dropping leaves. Hopefully the shape fills in and donít have to take it down to substrate.
Once a plant becomes established they are very weedy and just want to grow. Thereís H. Pinnatifida that keep growing in areas I long removed them from but a little bit of stem got stuck in the lava rock pores, next thing you know itís back.
I will probably be removing all the ground cover at some point to thin it out and replant, the Monte Carlo might be replaced with UG at the same time.
