Is that bacopa colorata at the back?
Your myriophyllum Guyana is really dense, do you trim replant the tops and save the bottoms? I’ve only had mine going for a month but seems to be spreading upwards rather than out and it already has a lot of light hitting it. Would love to achieve the same look.
pinnatifida has gone crazy good job keeping it low ish
Actually quite long in this photo @Jayefc1 when you pinch all the longer leaves it’s more in scale and looks tight. Also know the Anubias and buce at the front is too large but had no where else to store it. Will probably replace with some mini buces at some point to get everything back in scale.

I'm surprised your pinnitifida is still green with that insane amount of lightning, is it due to the onf led Spectrum? Or because you are fertilising with EI?
Cheers @Conort2 its not very well manicured in those photos but shows how it is most days if you don’t stay on top of it.
Yeah it is. Found a pot that was on its last legs and took a chance on chucking it in. There’s a half dozen healthy stems hidden at the back that will be moved somewhere more appropriate in the future.
Looks good, I tried it ages again low tech but it just melted away and died. Please let me know if you ever have any trimmings going spare to buy as I’d like to give it a go again now I’m using co2. I don’t believe it’s that hard a plant.
Oh thanks, didn’t realise they had anymore than the limited edition plants shown on their website. Might give them a shout at some point then.Not really tested it out yet @Conort2 so can’t say what it does or doesn’t like.
It really was on its last legs when it went in so placed it right at the back so it wouldn’t get pelted by 200 PAR thanks to some shading. Downside is it doesn’t get any Co2 mist back there.
The Amanos have turned their attention to the Macrandra in the back left corner now so suspect that patch may become vacant pretty soon. Can try moving the Bacopa there and see how it does.
If you’re looking more immediately give the good folks at Aquarium Gardens a try and see if they have some in or coming in soon. It’s a limited edition line from Tropica so may not be on the website.
They have so many diffrent plants coming in I guess it would almost be a full time job just updating the web site every other day loldidn’t realise they had anymore than the limited edition plants shown on their website. Might give them a shout at some point then
@Geoffrey Rea - quick question if I may - how do you go about removing the lid off the 'tickle box' - do those pipe fitting unscrew somehow?

Also, what kind of water level do you typically get above the sponge in the trickle box? Do you get any noise from the water fall in this box?
