It's coming together so we'll that I've blown myself away

A peace lilly and pothos is growing from the stump and hanging on the edge

I Have a red lotus in the front right of gravel, hoping it goes to the surface because that area doesn't need light and will complete the look I am going for (floating plants without overwhelming reproduction)

The tank is thriving and all fish are doing great with full bellies.

  • No pests made it through (snails)
  • No algae problems on the glass
    • Both light sources I have, the LED strip on the right and flood light on the left, are not hitting the front glass and I can go over a 6 weeks before I notice some vision hinderance from algae
  • Water changes once every 6-8 weeks
    • I have enough plants (in the water and emerged in the back corner) that all my readings are 0 (Amm, Nitrite, Nitrate)


The baby endlers sometimes sleep in the 'blades of grass'

This is about 4-5 months growth... Its time to thin some of this out
