In the meantime i also attached the Riccardia on the roots and added a few fishes.
Btw, superglue still worked under water, as long as there are less than 5 seconds between dipping and attaching.
As far as livestock goes - i will probably make myself a few enemies with the decision.

Images will follow this evening.

It's kinda not about making enemies or not, but about the welfare of the inhabitants.............................

Day 12.
Plants are healthy and rooting, CO2 is stable and unfortunately jumped two fishes. Right now I’ve put a clear wrap on the front half of the tank to keep the remaining safe.

Thank you both for the recommendations. I'll add some limnobium laevigatum this evening.

Very nice setup, love the guppies too...how do you like the tank size? Would love to upgrade from my 60P to this.

Nice scissors btw, got mine since 3 years and they're just the best on the market.
