So here are a couple of shots. But after one a little history.
So, after December, my tank was in pretty shoddy health for my tastes. I had a major nitrogen deficiency; I had made a mismeasured batch of mixed DIY NPK solution that I thought was about right and wasn't, and I had a three pound mass of bolbitis in the corner of the tank that was clogging my Eheim 2026's intake and would also suck down every smidge of fertz that were in the tank. The crinum was happy, but that was a miracle. Everything else showed signs of issues I had been neglecting. The only thing really keeping it together was the massive amount of CO2 I run and the fact that my 2 year old ADA bulb was nearly toast, in my honest opinion.
Since then, I reset root tabs, pulled the B, replaced the bulb with a green one (still don't like the spectrum that much, a little to green for my tastes), went back to good old E.I., and started to replant the tank in the glacial style with parva in the front. Pruning is pain. A friend hooked me up with a bit of extra parva, and since then the carpet is moving the right way. He also hooked me up with a couple of random crypts- I think its lucens and retrospiralis, but I have not nailed it down yet (haven't been trying either, frankly I just want to see if they melt or not before I get upset). Any guesses on ID's? They are in some of these shots, but aren't really focal.
I think he's sitting on lucens, but he could just be sitting on wendtii intstead, bad angle.
Got some crazy GSA (edit i think i meant GDA) going on the rocks plus I really think the green bulb makes it look worse than it is. Plus, I only have one otto in there, and frankly the plants are digging it right now and are free of algae, so I am not getting into the algae freak out mode yet, or really ever. I can clean the rock if I feel like it, but I have three show tanks running right now, two of which need more work than this one. Hope you like the pictures, I know they aren't perfect. I see a DSLR and a macro lens in my future.
