Thanks guys for the complements, what a great forum we have here!
Nice 75g tank problemman, I love your netting on top, it looks great. My 6 deceased rummy nose tetras would have appreciated that.
The grass looking plant on the left seems to grow by runners, I actually haven't taken it out of its pot/wool. It has been two weeks and looks like it will survive. Thanks for giving me the name, it looks to be the correct plant! Now I can find out on pruning techniques, because it grows fast.
The substrate is actually just small pebbles, I was new to aquariums, didn't know about soils, or even black flourite. I plan on swapping tanks (to a tank a couple inches higher and longer, without the rounded corners like my current cheapo tank) this summer, I will probably get some black flourite or the new Fluval Stratum soil that supposedly will not leech ammonia like ADA soil.
I actually do not have any regular fert dosing regiments, but when I am home, I would dose Seachem Flourish twice a week (around 3ml total per week). I just recently bought some Flourish Excel, sole reason being to combat the hair algae. It has been 4 days, the hair algae definitely toned down a bit. Too bad the cherry shrimp, otos, and the nerite snail don't seem to touch the stuff.
The flora are basically the plants that managed to survive in my tank, of course, most of it are mosses, java fern, and other easy to grow green plants. I have thrown away many plants that just couldn't survive, good thing plants in Hong Kong are cheap.
Two of the best investments in my aquarium so far:
Canister filter because they are quite and can be hidden in a cabinet for a clean look
Surface skimmer to get rid of the disgusting white protein film I always get, but not anymore, crystal clear water on the surface.
