So yeah my old 12 L windowsill is so much a mess that I decided to get the 45F I've had here for a year going.

ADA 45F
ONF Flat Nano+
Aquaclear 20 HOB

Dragonstone
Tropica Soil
Bits of wood

Lilaeopsis brasiliensis
Monte Carlo
H. tripartita
H. pinnatifida
A touch of buce
P. erectus
Rotala rotundifolia 'Ceylon' and a bit of H'ra, I think.
Christmas moss

A few ramshorn and lots of Hyalella

Daily waterchanges +75 %.

This might end in chaos 😁

Got some good growth, and some nice dustings of algae on the glass.

Will post some newer pics soonish.

It's a north facing window if that's any consolation :D the 12 L I have in a similar position was a bit on and off with algae, although always a bit on the glass. That I don't mind too much.
A few things are different with this one: it's in a position with slightly less direct sunlight, it has way better filtration and I actually commit to loads of waterchanges.
I might reduce the light from the ONF considerably for a while until late summer though.
I also expect loads of emerse growth very soon, so that should help a bit.

Very much an experiment, but at least I have a bit of experience with it.

It can still go completely tits up though :D

Sorry for the late reply:
It's good and bad, just as expected LOL

Lots of green algae on glass, but also lots of growth from the plants. Lilaeopsis having a major melt though.
Will do a more thorough update of my journals this weekend.
