The hairgrasses are still recovering from a BBA battle which haven't ended but is winning. Trimmed them to around 1cm but somehow they still get BBA though I can see runners and new shoots.

The rocks are basalt lava i got from local LFS (Singapore). I bought many and smashed them to get the shapes I wanted, by throwing them onto hard ground from a chair. :lol:

Some server side erros. I've uploaded the pics to another server.

Hanzo, I have 4 Yamato shrimps and 6 otocinclus in there. Going to put in 6 more Yamatos.

Here's a chronological order of the glosso growth I've put together.
