Curious did you get the King Crimson from ABC plants? I killed mine pretty good after a flush of growth, I'll be following their progress. Tank looks great, I like the change to glosso too.

Yeah, a store in Toronto named Tails and Scales got a shipment of ABC plants in and it was $12.99/cup, so why not.. My only regret is not splitting them up more but we'll see how they do.

June update:





- Dosing ThriveS fertilizer to switch things up
- Recently replaced most of the weeping moss with mini pelia as it was getting huge and shading other plants beneath.
- Downoi is in serious need of a major trim/replanting, getting way too tall now and hiding hardscape.
- Erio doing okay it seems..

- Livestock now includes:
- 4 Emerald eye rasboras
- 3 Celestial pearl danios
- Lots of fire red cherries and one amano

Will be picking up a school of Pseudomugil gertrudae sometime this month.

The downoi look awesome! I have some in my tiny cube. If they grow nearly as big as yours I will probably have to replace them with something else =(

Dry food mostly, throw some live in every now and again.

Looking good. The glosso really filled in quick. First time I have Pogo E. growing that thing can really move. It grows so quick, I also have mini pellia, that thing just sits there, the growth is so slooow.

The big quarantine trim

- Experimenting with hacking down the glosso to substrate level, hopefully it comes back
- Scattered Erio crimson towards the front for more co2/flow/light
- Removed Pogostemon erectus and back corner is now completely Rotala colorata
- Replanted all Downoi tops
- Moved Pinnatifida to the back and replaced with Downoi

DOOA Terra update



Really loving this setup, the back wall is now planted with weeping moss and the water is running.. I picked up some great looking driftwood and I have some Anubias golden petite/Anubias nana variegated floating. Still a lot of work to do and plants to acquire..

A little over a month since the last post and massive trim. Since then i've added a nice little group of Pseudomugil gertrudae which are amazing and I really wish I had more but the LFS sold out unfortunately. Wondering if I could add a equally sized group of Pseudomugil furcatus to the mix? Anyways, I still need to get some good pics of these guys and their unique finnage.

I finally replaced my broken lily pipe intake+sponge/outtake with a new Chihiros set and am now running an inline co2 diffuser. Two things I like about the upgrade include the Chihiros lily pipes being a bit smaller than my old VIV ones(better for nano tanks like mine) and having two suction cups to attach to the glass instead of one.

Plant wise, everything survived the huge trim and is doing great except for the Ranunculus papulentus. Trimmed the Downoi again but left the area in the back to grow taller. Added one tc pot of Staurogyne repens to the mix. Rotala doing great, erio's doing okay and the glosso needs a light trim..
