Still trying to put this one into shape I think this tank will be a while before seeing the results I'm after but slowly learning through the process so it's still a pleasure to maintain.
A lttle from this to this

Both still running off the sump very well.
I've removed the k1 micro media and added another litre of siporax, 4ltrs total. So far so good
The sump then and now.

Sea of greens tank is looking great, fair play for going for something different to the norm
Thanks mate.
As you may know it was an iwagumi style at first then island now this, i think I have that newbie plant buying disease that nobody really talks about on here, I'm slowly getting better. Just to add after buying 20kg of dragonstone today I feel like my plant buying problem is shifting to hardscape.
Cheers

Plant heavy and trim low fill in the gaps with the (tops)cuttings a few times until the area is full also cutting slightly higher each time will help, this works for me but OCD don't help or does in this case, have to say I trim every 10 days or so or this happens

Over the 10 days after trimming heavy it goes through stages of growth and colours which I enjoy more than having the tank constantly in show condition
