After I started using NilocG dry EI liquid diy fertilizers my plant growth has at least increased by 3x or so lol, crazy! so I had to do a trim on my ludwigia arcuata. And the carpet is finally growing back after a week of staying low to the ground. Good things good things! also have a pregnant CPD which is interesting, fry most likely wont survive if they even hatch from the eggs that they scatter around. But who knows maybe they will, maybe ill just have to purchase another tank..... darn

Just received some amazing Sy. Belem!
Hope it lives im putting it in the exact opposite conditions it thrives in that being hard alkaline water...
Overdose on fertilizers though so I hope that has a positive effect.
Wish me luck with this plant ill try to get some pictures tonight

also thinking of starting a nano SW tank as that may be my first one if I go along with the plan I have.... muahaha..
Anyway I have to thank @strungout for the plants I got from him, awesome and got a couple extra plants of a different kind to which was very nice! Hopefully they do good in my tank. Some of the stems already are practically dragging atop of the water since they are so tall.

Trimmed the tanks middle PW section, half way down since it was getting kind of To wild.. Got banned on TPT for reporting a moderator (somewhatshocked) and unfortunately most of my really good friends were on that forum... now I guess ill have to truly move onto greener pastures.. Sadly, but it will have to do. Therefor I guess ill be updating on here more often, just because of the spare time I got. :(
Good news; the indica I got is super straight and adds a good pinkish, but green and yellow mix to my other iwagumi tank I have... well hybrid iwagumi.. lol :)

It's looking good.. keep the updates!
Don't be afraid of throwing plants out and adjust with others.
I had this scape..:

Now, adjusting (I mainly get rid of the high maintenance plants) little by little it looks completely different.
It looked poorly for a while because now I only have slow/medium growth plants.. so, it's taking it's time to look decent BUT we can agree this is a life time hobby (at least to me :p)
