2 gallon

This is my almost 3 week old 2 gallon tank. Used to be an Eclipse Explorer, but I took of the cover and rim. I have :
Hush Elite 5 filter
27watt full spectrum lighting from HD
DIY CO2
2x Female Endlers
2x Male Endlers
Glosso as ground cover
2x Rhizomes of Anubias Nana
Snails that came from with anubias I'm assuming.

Tank and Light Etc

Endlers

Snail

Algae on my Nana(what kind is it?)

Pearling Glosso (the bubble looks so cool.

Glosso all bunched up in a corner


I want to remove one of the nanas so the glosso has a better chance of growing in. What do you think? Any suggestions? Thanks!

looks nice. I want something similar. Anubias tend to grow GSA under direct or bright light in my experience. I forgot what the chemical term was but over feeding helped me reduce GSA in one of my nano tanks.

Well, in a tank that size, Endlers were probs not a good choice unless you want to get another tank for grow-outs. Those things are little aquatic rabbits.

Thanks for the comments everyone!
I do have a 55 gallon that I'm hoping to fill up with my endlers that grow out enough. I don't want to breed them in the 55 cause it's a community tank and yeah. I also have a friend with a 100 community tank I'm gonna donate a lot to too.

And I'm using a 1.5 L mitsuya cider bottle, lol. I use the mix with baking soda and it's working well.

And I do overfeed my endlers, and there used to be fungus growth on it D:


And oh, does anyone have any other suggestions for stem plants? Or maybe something in the background in general? I removed one of the anubias and was thinking of hm or one of the red rotalas(though they grow big don't they?)
