Thanks, Nate. I hope you’re settling in well in your new home. Start a new tank and journal when you can.



I know right, who cares about the move. I need a new inspiring journal ( :

FTS.

Upon Joe Harvey’s (@Burr740’s) suggestion, I moved bright green plants to the corners to visually expand the width of the tank.

Eriocaulon ‘Feather Duster’ (what a weird name!) is growing thicker, and Pogostemon erectus will need trimming soon.

Tonina fluviatilis is growing slowly, but I like the new bright green stems coming out. Last time I planted T. fluviatilis, all of them melted. This new growth gives me hope.

On the other hand, I gave up hope on Cryptocoryne sp. ‘Flamingo’ which didn’t really take off.

As for Pogostemon helferi, I suspect someone is nibbling on new leaves. Could it be shrimps? Or maybe twig catfish?

Helanthium bolivianum angustifolia is thriving. As long as you keep an eye on aggressive runners, everything should be fine.

Well its official

this Will win AGA if you enter.

Let things thicken up a bit more, otherwise you have first place in dutch category.

Once you start getting advice from joe then you know your pretty much set for success...!

As for the nibbling, doubt it'd be the twigs... more likely shrimp if anything... hmmm... i hope you catch them in the act or something!

Everything is looking beautiful in there, i mean like Really beautiful. Hard to describe.

Thanks for the kind words, but this doesn’t even come close to competitive tanks. It’s overcrowded with too many species, I don’t uproot and replant tops (I just cut them down). [emoji4]
