Blurry photo, the light is BRIGHT, especially on the sand. Hopefully once everything fills in more lushly, the sand wont be visible and ill be able to take better pics.

Ok I need tips on this TC Ar 'mini' its only grown maybe 4cm over the period of time I have had it. Normal or not? never have done TC successfully before.

Fire Red Stem Myrio has grown about 5", soft water with high ph, guess it THRIVES in this water.
For real though I got it and it was about 4" tall now its like 9 or 10"

BUCEPLANTS was a disappointing joke for me to I base all my purchases on reviews and from what I saw they had very happy customers. I paid for two day to avoid the heat in Texas but they shipped it on a Thursday, I got it 4 or 5 days later. All were completely melted and smelled like a dead animal. I had to fight to get a full refund. Aquarium Plants in Florida do me right every time https://aquariumplants.com/ .
I have a 36 gal Bow Front with about the same measurements, I use a Finnex Planted + 24/7 CRV (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07SCPT6BR/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1) It gets the bottom plants and does good with Red plants. I also bought a 30" 4 bulb T-5 hood 96 watts total with 2 6500K bulbs and two Pink plant 24w t-5's ( It's to much wattage I think, it's bulky, Hot and I don't like the light color.) I love my Finnex LED and it's worth every bit of the $105. I paid.

The Ammania you commented on above can be a very frustrating plant at first. I have found it is usually sold in it Immersed form and will have to transition into its submersed form, if this is the case most of the Ammania plant you just bought is going to dye off in the transition which took me about three months to get what you see on the right side of my tank. You will start to get new leaves that are that are thinner brighter and more tightly packed. The old leaves on bottom become algae magnets and start to look bad . When I had about 3" of new growth I cut the tops at 5 or 6 " and pulled off the old leaves and replanted and threw everthing else away. after about 4 or 5 weeks they are rooted well and start to grow again.
