Thanks, not quite the look I am going for long term... but the stems here and there has inspired me quite a bit. Well now they are pretty much just all over to help stabilize the tank.
But with they could look,like small single "trees" for the background, with the smaller ones like R. Indica and R. H'ra... then some a bigger stem for the midground like I have in the middle now, R. Macrandra and in front mabe a single bigger tree made by wood and anubias petite or moss.
but thanks for your comment anyways, those diatoms is a real pain in the ass, but with the VIVID running only at 20% for a few hours I am glad all the HC have not died off yet.
Pretty sure all the carpeting plants is about to lift them self off the substrate, because they need a serius trim. Can I do that, and will they grow back with so little light?
Today I did a big water change after what I would guess was 6-8 weeks without one.
After all I was happy to see that the diatoms have forgot about the rocks and was mostly sitting intense on the glass.
Allways forget before maintanance pictures, but imagine 3 weeks after pics in my last post!!
A good population of RCS have grownup in there. I still keep some stems, and 'guppygrass' to help stabilize the tank. Planning to pull that out some day.
Allso added an African floating plant for the same purpose.
Think some kind of DIY backlight could be a great addon for the tank. Can't wait to play with that now.
Critical feedback/suggestions allways very welcome.
I still don't change water as often as I should. Mabe every 3 weeks in average. Anyway tank is getting more and more stable. Or at least not so many cyanobacteria now, as the most part only sits on the left side glass.
The front glass is now gets completely covered in green algae after 5 weaks of no maintanance.
Anyway plants looks pretty good.
Some BBA I guess in the weeping moss and on the rock where flow is strongest.
Removed a lot of a crazy growing african floating plant giving light to the rest of the plants.
Still planning to ad some backlight, that hopefully can light up my 'bluesy and clouds' wallpaper that have lost a lot of detail after I filled the tank with water.
It's been a lot of fun with the hard scape, and yes I will add more livestock.
But can't really choose... my main plan is some really small fish like rasbora galaxy's, but their are a lot of caves here and there, many not visible, and could allso be fun with some, not to big fish, who would enjoy theise.
