Was nothing much to see at first.. Crypts just shooting from the rhizome, my only remaining fish - a stubborn colony of kuhli loaches - sulking and pretending to be invisible.
Its simple, but its coming together. The (previously) carefully layered NPT substrate was dumped back in and allowed to settle, very messily, until the magic of trumpet snails stirred the silt back below the sand.
The crypts are coming back surprisingly fast. The wood, which was completely dried out in my shed for several months, is returning to life from the dried bones of moss and even fissidens remaining.
A few colourful guppies, chocolate cherry shrimp and a tiny baby peppermint bristlenose were added after the recent QFAS Market, and the whole thing is as low maintenance as I could wish for right now
