The 60p the glosso lifted due to not being trimmed often enough by that i mean for nearly 3 weeks bue it my inexperience more than any thing but its all a learning curve

but with a lil time and patience it was cleaned and replanted so all is good there found a lot of baby shrimps grazing under the glosso carpet just gotta keep on top of trimming and keeping it low and letting it achieve a good density

The 800 is just ticking along not growing as fast as i expected but not looking unhealthy i dont think

Ok, this might sound silly...but. I’ve read that it’s fine to use an electric toothbrush in an aquarium. I was seriously tempted to do this at the weekend, but didn’t, as I only have one toothbrush and thought better of it.
Just throwing it out there bro...;)

So massive water change today with a couple of issues inline diffuser started to leak at the joint of the plastic. pipe came off on the filter water everywhere. hose managed to pop out of the sink as I drained the tank so again water everywhere Haha the misses just kept giving me the look as she started to mop the kitchen about 1 min after she had mopped the living room floor
Aww well all good ways to keep your elbows wet I told her she just fround at me with no clue what I was on about
So back to intank diffusion
The water is crystal clear and the plants look amazing I need a glass outtakes if any one has one
Was going t .try and keep it low tech low light but I just couldnt resist the co2 as I had everything available
With lighting I'm going to keep the twinstar 600EA
On 60% but keep it a lot higher above the tank as it is suspended from the ceiling so the par isnt so high for the plants I really want it to be easy to maintain if any one has any suggestion to keep it easier please do chip in any suggestion on stocking welcome too
Thank for reading happy new year to one and all

Cheers

Floating plants to shade things along with good Co2 management should go a long way to making life simple. That’s if you like them though, I know they're not everyone’s cup of tea.

There’s always frogbit but floating a clump of watersprite during the first month is what I usually do @Jayefc1

It doesn’t block your skimmer, tolerates being blown around by your outlet and sucks up excess nutrition whilst having access to Co2 above the surface; extra dissolved oxygen for the system to get it on its feet.
