:lol:

I'm going to order some HC from MA later, so that should sort out the nakedness in no time... I'm also thinking of replacing the rapid growing hygrophila polysperma, with several forms of Rotala.

The bacopa australis melted during my week of no co2, so thats also gone. I've replaced it with some crypts, but now I've done it I'm not sure they work that well with the rest of the tank, so I need to look for alternatives...

I've retained the stones, wood and rough layout, but kept it a little more simple. Please ignore the hardware, I was testing a few things out with co2 flow :lol: I've also got what looks like Rhizoclonium growing on the fissidens, so I've removed as much as possible and up'd co2 + ferts. The old tank still exists as a shrimp and moss colony, with 15w T8 lighting, EX700 filtration, no co2 or ferts.

Yup, she sure did :lol:

Cheers bud, yeah, the Fissidens is the moss on the wood. I'm more happy with the gravel than anything - that grey river stuff I had before was foul... I couldn't afford AS or Eco Complete this time around, but I have an ample amount of JBL Aqua Basis underneath. And I hope I've got all that bladderwort out :p
