Going with nature
I had to leave town for a couple of months, and I came back to a tank pretty well overgrown with a single species -- sorry, but I can't remember what it is (I buy my plants in Indonesia and naming is not their specialty!) As you can see, it is quite over-grown (as you'd expect for 2+ months of no attention). There is also still a couple types of problematic algae.
The tank is about 1.5 years old now, so I think it has 'matured' to the point where I'd like to try and work with what I've got.
In other words, do you all have any recommendations for plants/fish/shrimp that would do well in this tank--considering the lush growth that you see here?
The tank has 4 regular-output fluorescent tubes, CO2 supplementing, a simple 'over-flow' style flooded trickle filter, and a nice bed of substrate.
