10 G rescaped but can improve

Hello, Just want to share some pictures of my 10g. This one have been running for a long time but in the last few months I've been paying more attention to it.
Filter: Eheim 2213, Lilly pipes (thanks Orlando)
Substrate: AS
CO2: inline diffuser @ 1-3 bps (from an user of this forum), paintball tank
Lighting: PC 40 watts for 8 hrs
Dosing: Dry ferts
Fish: 4 ottos at the moment
Flora: UG, HC, creeping jenny, Erio ?, blyxa, Crypt parva,Nesaea pedicellata 'Golden' and on the far right I don't remember the name .

At the moment I'm trying to see what grows fine in my tank...blyxa is growing great. The HC left was the only amount I could save from algae. The UG was planted during this week. The
Nesaea pedicellata 'Golden' came in bad shape but it will make it. Parva is very slow, I might remove it away from direct light because it's starting to get some algae.

Any advice will be appreciated.



UG trying to swim away !! will be fixed.



Hopefully Nesaea Golden will turn ok in some time


Parva

wow, youve done an awesome job with this! keep it up! give this tank some time, commit to doing no rescapes for a few months, and it will look amazing. once this tank grows in, it will really be stunning. My only suggestion would be to swap out the blue background for a black one, it will make the plants look greener and the tank look bigger.

First: in about a week I'll take some pictures to see any progress.
I replanted the UG but it seems that the ottos like to play with them. They actually uproot it when they are cleaning it. I'm thinking on removing the ottos to other tanks and drop in a betta for the moment.

You've done a great job making the tank look larger than 10g! Wish I could say the same about mine. I'd love to fast forward and see this all grown in nice, should be something.

It has been a little over a month now. Still using the same blue background, want to change to black ..lazy
The tank needs some TLC and some pruning over the weekend. The UG started slow but it is growing.
Any suggestion on moving/changing plants ?

Amazing transformation. That betta is simply gorgeous!

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

Well I took out some of the blyxa as they where taking to tank. Then added a wood I found at the beach last summer.

Not really liking the tank right now

UG is growing great and everything is pearling. In about a week the rummys will be removed ( this is a QT tank).
I want to add some red plants, any ideas what might look good?
