For a lack of a better word.I dont even know what style it is anymore.Microswords at front as suggested,whats left of monte carlo after 1.5 weeks,limnophila sessiliflora,bacopa carolina,rotala bonsai,limnophila hippuroides, bettzickiana green,alternanthera reineckii ,subwassertang,java moss on lava rock above filter,dwarf papyrus on driftwood with bucep,anubias mini and anubias petite on rock covered with fissidens, helanthium sp at front sides and nymphoides aquatica at front.
Realised its hard to see the anubias.

Def need increase ferts possibly only potassium and maybe trace.We have nitrates and phosphorus.
Do I need co2 considering these are easy plants.Is liquid carbon a worthwhile investment that helps to get my plants to desired growth and height then after that i can stop?Co2 is too costly for me.

What i learnt:
NEVER BUY SUPER TINY STEMS OR URE GONNA HAVE A HARD TIME PUTTING IT IN SUBSTRATE.
Superglue is good for small plants and my clumsy hands.
Gravel needs to be deep enough or plants will float.

Did a bit of shifting and binned the bettzickiana as it looks ugly and *too normal*.Got a secondhand shiruba PF1000 which looks big but ohwell.
