Looks fantsastic. I really like how you have not gone with a mass of different plants all over the place. There is something to be said for simplicity.

I have questions about your retention of CO2 within the water column, running two HOBs.... I wonder if this could have had something to do with your previous algae issues?

Should look awesome once it grows in.

Well done!

Thanks for the nice comments.

Peter16 - IME HC has been easy to grow once the roots have established. Just separate individual stems from the bunch and plant them individually. I don't bother trying to just plant the roots, just stick it into the substrate so a few leaves are showing. Dosing iron helps too.

Ghengis - The algae issue (BBA and Staghorn) with the old version of this tank (CRS breeding tank) was due to the tank sitting in front of a window and I wasn't using Co2 or dosing any ferts because of the low yield of babies. Though I will be getting a canister and lily pipes when I get paid.

Kit - The reason why I'm broke is because of the rare plants and fish ><
