Yes, too quickly, some of the Buces are already getting too big and I'll have to consider splitting them in a few weeks.

The Neons works perfect in there. Is that a Harlequin Rasbora as well?
Its a small school of Espei Rasboras(Trigonostigma Espei) or Labchop Rasbora, smaller cousin of Harlequins. I might get a few more after my trip to bring them up to 10 or so as they school tightly with numbers. But I wanted to get Mosquito Rasboras as well so I'll have to decide one or the other.

I don't actually know, it has coloring like the L-085 Gold Nugget Pleco, small spots, with a white stripe on the edges of tail and dorsal, but its white not yellow.

The tank has been growing in nicely. Rotala Rotundifolia and Pogostemon Erectus beginning to color up as they reach the top of the tank. Spiky Moss has become darker, more dense, and is slowly creeping along the spider wood. S. Repens is maintaining large leaves and showing more vertical growth. Bucephalandra are coloring up nicely and at higher light I am seeing more bluish tones. Hygrophila Pinnatafida is finally showing faster growth.

Things I am working on:

Ludwigia Palustris is coloring up and growing quickly but the emersed growth is melting at the bottom of the stems and the increased height is causing the stems to detach from the spiderwood. I will need to get guidance on how to attach the stems more robustly at the top of the spider wood. I will soon need to top the ludwigia into shorter pieces and reattach it to the spiderwood.

I need to get more types of moss possibly to put on the spderwood thinking about weeping or Christmas but trying to keep things really low maintenance so I don't want moss that gets messy when you trim it any suggestions?
