Great video, I'm glad I subscribed. That little tank is a gem, I can't wait for the Hairgrass to fully grow out, that will be something nice to behold! Great job!

Yes it is, and starting to fill into it's own!

Once the Hairgrass becomes super dense, you'll see the tank transform again, Hairgrass is in my top 5 fav Aquarium plants, one I have great experience with. As for the Hygro, looking a little pale, I understand you are aiming for low tech, but it looks like it needs a tiny touch Fe (Iron) and maybe a little more light to bring out it's true beauty.

Overall, this is an amazing little tank, congrats.

Really, really nicely done. I've been away too long again.

What's your current list of flora and fauna from the photo above?

Dwarf hairgrass, java fern, hydrocotyle pinnatifida, hydrocotyle leucocephala
S. Repens and an unknown grass that grows upwards from a mass of roots. Inhabited by 10 boraras brigittae and 6 amano shrimps

Dang. The unknown grass is the one I was curious about from the back of the tank.

Yeah its a mystery. New plants grow diagonally from the side. Every one I've asked has said it was some grass that shoots runners and thats wrong.

Whelp, after moving my aquarium to a different room I have destroyed the original carpeted and healthy ascetic by allowing too much ambient sunlight and not cleaning anything. Algae takeover! It's not worth photographing, but I will be rescaping this aquarium into a dual-island aquascape soon when I get my plan organized.

Algae...I've had about enough of that myself. Good luck with the new layout!
