im nearly algae free! I did a big dino spit spot dose on it all and its clearing up nicly but i burnt some of the moss and i might have pissed off some of the plants a little with it too but they will bounce back and be better for it! The shrimp didnt seem to mind at all, they have been very active after the big dose. 

Now to get the hair grass to fill out a bit more! I had to block the blue leds to get a good over head pic, all you could see was the led pattern  in the first pic i tried haha

Another week another update, algae is still minimal after the glut bombing, I've exiled  a couple of male crs from the rack for having poor colour. All the new plants have settled in well and have new growth.  I'd like to raise the co2 levels to thicken up the grass, but im not sure how im going to do it with out having to change the filter and use a diffuser (i dont want to spend money on it haha) so ill keep thinking and see how it goes.

I moved the filter abd bell diffuser so when the plants grow out they should be hidden and i trimmed a bit more.

So the dino spit didn't affect that cherry at all? Resilient little buggers.

No not at all, the red nose and DAS all went ok as well :)

Couple of progres shots, every thing is growing well and algae is staying manageable.

Filling in nicely. What is the bushy green plant/moss at the base of the driftwood?

its the same moss that is above the water line, so possibly weeping moss if inverted is right?

Im not sure that its weeping as weeping would have spread out a bit more than what that one has this is mine 0039b81f599ac2e2a4197e57652b4d8b.jpg

It wouldn't be the first time I've been wrong though lol

I stand corrected lol either way it looks cool and i love the way it's growing out of the water. Was that tied and then sat out of the water or has it grown that way?
