    I like it on the table. Our table is covered with homework, watch repair tools, and dog toys....

    So i swapped out the Bolbitis heteroclita and placed Microsorum mini instead, that bolbitis is really not for submerged growth it only made alien like stumps as new leaves. Further today i noticed some really small tufts of BBA on the sand in the front of the tank where it gets the most light..:eek: All the plants now grows at a good pace but i think they could do better.. Don't know what is the cause maybe the flow is not optimal? Could have been cause I was lazy vacuuming the sand for one week, think that it would not matter if the conditions where right?

    Long time since an update.. Most of the plants are doing pretty well. The monte carlo I took out it was shaded to much, swapped it for more anubias pangolino thats does great.
    Put some vesicularia ferriei on some branches. The rotalas i'd cut back and replanted the green version is doing great as the yao yai has a really hard time recovering. There has been no more BBA on the sand anymore. But after installing a wave maker for better flow it started too grow more on the buces although it is removable and the buces are growing like crazy and the ones on top are pearling also.. I'm a bit worried, there must be something i can do to stop it?

    Here is an picture of the current state, don't mind the cut down bolbitus and the moss in the front thats just temporary :)
    Pogestemon broad leaf is stunting now andthen its also not really full as i would like it don't know if it is something i'm doing wrong or it is just the species? Wonder if i cant find something similar that gets more bushy.. Ordered a surface skimmer lately I'm getting more surface skum. I increased the lighting a bit maybe its too much after all..

    Natural is the way i wanted to go only it takes ages to get filled in as i want..
    Today, finally got my self stainless steel pipes with surface skimmer wish had got it way sooner such a difference!
    Set the wave maker on the same timer as my co2.. The tetras where avoiding the flow too much.. Now they happy swim the whole tank after the co2 shuts down 2h before lights go to moonlight..

    Long time since I posted an update. Tank is still going changed some plants.. added some different crypts to the left side its pretty low light.. and under the dark spots of the tridents anubias coffefolia.. Changed the pogestemon broad leaf to limnophila hippuridoides wich grows way fuller in my tank. Have some co2 issues due to my valve i guess causes some bba but nothing that trimming old leaves cant handle.. have some submersed growth hope it will flower .. As my tiger lilly still has not.. :(
    Photos are really poor quality from a cheap replacement phone..[​IMG][​IMG]
