Nice. I changed out the light with a Finnex 26w too on mine. What bulb did you end up purchasing?

1 month update:
I got hit with rhizoclonium but it slowly going away now, my mini pelia shot out root and over few days i had all this green stuff completely covering my driftwood thought it was algae but it all mini pelia. those root must have shoot out spores or something like that.

New plants added:
Downoi
Crypt nurii

Added 10 crs and 4 cbs, i think i lost 1 or 2 crs they always behind the driftwood that where i added the almond leaf and where the sponge filter is hidden.

Added 2 amanos and 1 really large cherry shrimp i think she sakura or fire red, they did a really nice job clearing the rhizoclonium however 1 amano disappear overnight i couldn't find him on the floor.

Full tank shot


mini pellia every where


mini pellia roots i never new they had roots, accidentally remove tons of root when i try to pick off some of the rhizoclonium off, this pic is what left but they still shooting out roots. It make the driftwood look really natural when the root get very long, they look like vine

Very nice indeed. I get that MP on my wood also. I think it looks really good considering my Java Moss didn't grow up like I wanted it to. It's a nice green and brings a more natural look to the tank. I also LOVE that Downoi! I want some for my tank, and would get it if I had the room in there.

I have light on for 4 hrs daytime and 4 hr night time so 8 hrs total. Actually those algae was my fault i had a rhizoclonium outbreak in my 5.5 gallon that i manage to clear out with excel , through my stupidity i move some frogbit over from 5.5 and accidentally transfer the algae into the ebi i can't overdose excel in this tank because of the crs/cbs so i might have to do a 5 day black out.

Update sry no picture but i remove 90% of the HC since the shrimp wasn't liking it to much they prefer to walk on the gravel i did planted some more e.belem.

here update of it:
No Co2
Fertilizer whenever i remember
Move 9 chili rasboras in to the tank and 2 otto catfish and 4 peppered cory
Still have TFR, CRS, and CBS in the tank.
I remove ton off moss off the driftwood it was completely covered in mini pelia and Fissiden Fontanus. Added Two peacock moss attach on steel mesh and it growing out of control. I remove the Philippians java fern and place it into my CPD breeding tank, it was growing out of control in Ebi.
The watersprite look brown in some area because i didn't trim it in awhile and the bottom was browning from no light so i trim like 3/4 of it then i took the latest picture
Got bored of the HC carpet so i remove i toss it out and added MM since it grow very slow.

I LOVE, LOve your tank. One of the most natural looking tanks on the site now IMO. Looks like my Dartfrog Viv. So lush.
