Looking good! what's in there? Hygro, crypts... Anubias in back?? Looks like a good amount of biomass. How long AHS I been running?

Could do with some red, and maybe a coat of black on the spray bar.

I would look into plastidip for the spray bar. Once it cures it should be fine. It is water resistant and is just a plastic polymer. You can get it for line $5 at Lowes or home depot. You could even spray your tank so the spray bar blends in. To remove it just scratch with a razor.

Hmmmm good idea. Do you think flex seal can do that to?

Is that the rubber in a can? Like from the commercial with the boat? I would assume so yes. I believe it is silicone, could be mistaken though. The only issue would be the holes of the spray bar. They would get filled with rubber.

I used something similar, called rust-o-leum, but I'm not sure if its available over the pond or not.

I've got a red lotus, which is doing really well and really red (almost maroon) in my no-CO2 tank, but that might get a bit big a bit quickly for you. If your crypts are doing well, how about a bronze crypt?

I have seen rust-o-leum around here. In fact I think all three of these products are available at Lowes on the same aisle. O would say just research the three and pick the best choice or if all three are 100% safe get the cheapest. Save you money for those red plants that way
