Yeah they grab lots of soil with, usually I swish around the roots in the water so all the soil falls down.

Sorry guys, I was getting algae and slime at the top even though the tank is packed, but flow was being blocked by certain stems as well. I don't know reason for the algae but I tore the tank down.

Well heres everything I uprooted. Belem won the fight and seems to be the fastest of all the syngonanthus I have. Madeira had the least roots and was very easy to pull out. Took 1hr and 25 mins to tear all this down.

Not much to look at, water cloudy and debris all over the plants. Maybe I should get a better clean up crew, any recommendations? I'd like to get zebra ottos and panda loaches, but no source at the lfs's. What I don't like is the eriocaulon watery eyes on the left side that says in the current so easily and the thin leaves get on the other plants. All the syngonanthus you see were mainly sideshoots pulled off, the hybrid I kept most of as its a personal favorite, with all the sideshoots, I was able to fill the whole tank up again. Everything for the most part is planted very closely together, I had to use my planting tool along with my fingers(hold the plant straight up while planting). Including the short tear down, total time with many breaks and sleep took about 12 hrs to do so. After tank setup, ended with a 15g water change. I siphon the water out and pour the water onto the lights or onto the mini pellia as not to disturb the substrate or the plants from uprooting. Right now, I got pantanal, rotala sunset and eriocaulon goias added to the tank floating. Pantanal is planted already

I forget where you are but I know a guy who can ship zebra ottos to you.

I think the best cleanup crew though is nerite and amano shrimp.

Got a lil algae in my tank I hope to rid of asap. Brown algae on the glass and tiny bits here and there of a green algae on certain tops. Not sure if its diatoms on my erios or just collectoritis, but here to you I showcase my erios. Shows all except the floating erio goias I have as well.
