thats a nice, healthy-looking tank. Just wondering if you should remove the floating riccia (?) if you want to get really good glosso growth. See how it goes. The more direct the light, the better glosso grows. keep us posted!

yes you have .... (come si dice ragione ) reason

every saturday i'm going to the acquarium shop to change the 90% of riccia whith fertilizer or gish-food or caridine ... ecc... but the riccia grows very fast and every week I remove one cup from first breakfast.

Rek - Getting some good, healthy growth there for you first 5 months. Well done!

It looks like you spread plants from the same species throughout the tank. To me, it looks better if you plant the same variety of plants closer together, either in one 'stand' or possibly in a couple groupings. Just a thought.

Good job!
Brian.
