I really like your hardscape and your plant selection. Blyxa & HC is one of my favorite combonations! And that drop checker looks awesome! I think this will look AMAZING when it's all grown in!

Well, after 2 failed attempts with Hemianthus callitrichoides "Cuba" and one with Utricularia graminifolia, I decided it was time to do what ever I had in mind at the beginning of the project, only Eleocharis acicularis

Did you remove all of the UG? If not I'd be on the lookout for it to spring back up! I had a few patches totally melt (so I thought) and there are now tons of little leaves poking out of the substrate!

Looking good Okocha! I see you have trimmed your grass recently.

Got any close ups of your invertebrates?

My tank sucks now
