Neat! I've considered trying this but worried it might introduce filter pump life issues with the introduction of gas and subsequent pressure loss there. Have you noticed any problems?

Air plants above the tank attached to the prime mount. Superglued onto some sponge then onto an old nano magnetic glass cleaner, easy to detach and soak. Inspired by @Hendy8888

Minor renovations include:

Pulled up all Hygrophilia and replaced half with Ranunculus papulentus, replanted the tops of the other half
Pulled up all Pogostemon and replaced half with Rotala colorata, replanted the tops of the other half
Trimmed mosses & pinntatifida

Your tank is over the top. I've never seen anyone plant Glosso so meticulously, and I've watched Amano in-person plant Glosso.
Just planted and not grown in that looks better than mine. I can grow plants, I just don't have the design skills. I'm working on it.
Love the Pogo helferi. I've never gotten it to like me, but it might in my current set up. I have some I tissue cultured. I need to pull it out of flask.

The Glosso should be a nice change and will give good contrast. That's the best way to plant it. I've planted HC one stem at a time and it always came in great. The Papulentus is the same as Inundatus right. That's a nice plant. I always had a problem keeping it short. It's very invasive, but easy to cut back.

Still digesting plant growing out of inanimate object (light stand)

I think it pays off greatly planting your carpet meticulously from the start if possible as @Asteroid concurs. Also, I paid for one day shipping of the tissue cultures but they ended up coming almost a week later. Glosso looked the worse out of the bunch and didn't leave me with a lot of plant mass.

Yeah, I agree with you about the helferi.. So satisfying to see it grown in dense bushes. Just need to find out what's the best course of action for maintaining, trimming or replanting tops?

"The river buttercup from Australia, Ranunculus inundatus, is also sold with the label Ranunculus papulentus". Interested to see how it grows, I just love the leaf shape.

Beautiful tank, very delicate and detailed. This is something I like about nano tanks, that you can really focus in the tiniest of details and make the scape look compact and complex in a very tiny space. I like the changes a lot, especially the carpet changes, I think in such a small tank like this a very short carpet like glosso, would look a lot better.

Yeah the glosso is a big hit I think, really improves the scape. I've always wanted to try it ever since seeing it in ADA picture books and online but never got around to it till now.

I remember scaping with riccia once.. It's crazy how not a single soul uses it anymore, rip riccia.

Glosso update coming soon, the patience does pay off for a quick way to fully and evenly carpet an area.
