    Well i did it!:eek:
    Pruned right back, just left a few of the smaller stems. You can now see the pogostmen and its looking good! So as planned it should grown at a similar pace now.

    Looking lovely and clean after the trim mate, I'd live to get lily pipes but I've heard how they quickly get dirty

    So the tank is coming along nicely, the pruned back plants are starting to show new growth. I have also pruned some of the Staurogyne right back to get some nice fresh growth.

    Apart from that not much else to report.

    Hey mike, Good news, tough old plant that then! The stems are just starting to come back good since i pruned your lot out, another couple of weeks should be back to full steam.

    Thanks Stu, still not happy with my pics though, your going have to give me some coaching! I havent managed to take a "great" pic of this tank yet. One that really shows it well. Never satisfied :)

    Cheers:hungry:

    Noted! You may regret that! It may involve a trip to my house with your gear!
    The Rasboras look even better in the flesh!
    Thanks Dude!

    Update!

    So managed to get some time on the tank over the last week or so, and given it a good clean and tidy. the pruned plants seem to be finding their feet again. The Pog Erectus is looking good dare i say it!!! Never been successful with this plant and its a good 3-4" tall now and still looking healthy.

    Here are a load of pics, i got a little carried away:
    (For the first time in ages, i removed all the equipment to take the pics.):wideyed:
