Day 1 vs Day 92



Not the greatest quality but it's awesome to see big growth from the mini pelia and other slow growers. The explosion of pinnatifida and monte carlo is so satisfying to watch.. All the stems have had multiple trims throughout the tanks life by now and are not at peak height/shape currently.

4.5 month update:

Had a wonderful time moving this tank downstairs to have the carpets redone and then move it back afterwards.. Thankfully I was able to drain the water down to a couple inches and just pick it up. Lost a couple shrimp and fish but it went smoother then expected. Also was able to upgrade my filter from the Eheim 2213 to the 2215 for more flow.

Current inhabits include:

4 CPD's
2 SAE's
2 Ember tetras
Amano/Cherry shrimp
1 Nerite snail

Tank is kind of on autopilot and doesn't require much attention. Just a trim here and there, some feeding and water changes. Thinking about a rescape in a month or two and getting a new school of nano fish.

7th month update:

The scape is doing great but has gone through some minor changes..

I ended up removing all the stems so maintenance would be easier on me as the summer gets super busy. In replace of the stems I split all my blyxa plants and created a super blyxa field, might look cool once filled in fully? I ripped out all of the thick overgrown monte carlo and planted some small plugs which are beginning to fill in a small area on the left. The bolbitus has been producing larger leaves/rhizome and was overshadowing the monte carlo/everything else below it so things had to move around. Now the only thing under it is mini pelia/anubias/buce. I love the bolbitus but unfortunately my tank is too small for its mature leaf size, constant trimming and it's leaves are still hitting the glass so it could be replaced sometime soon. Other then that, everything is growing pretty smoothly and the tank has no problems.
