Early days, would be good to have some more stats! Other than 65 ltr

No point in trying to guess: What is your filtration/lighting/substrate/dosing regime.

Sorry if I have missed something and you mentioned this earlier, no offence

looking good you should look at some lower growing fore ground plants like a hair grass (im not too good with what plants you can use for your light) check out the tropica website for some ideas

Thanks, i will look into that :)

Also on my Anubia there appears to be little strands of something floating with the flow of the water, should i just gravel vac it off or is there a better way?

I just broke my glass co2 diffuser :thumbdown: and i cant afford another for a while. is it ok to repair it with epoxy glue? will the chemicals effect the fish? i wont place it in the tank until its completely cured of course.

i have found that an air stone can work with co2, isnt amazing but it works!!! saves messing with glue

will need some more detail on the things on your anubius is it a form or algae if you are unsure check out james c's website is helpfull.
