64 Litre "Forest Edge" Tank - Week 16-17 Update

More updates...

Week 16

Background plants grew surprisingly fast, expected them to take 2 weeks to recover, but instead within just a week they grew back with a vengeance!



Looks abit messy and wild with the uneven growth of the background stem plants, need to trim some more to shape it.


Week 17

Did some additional fine trimming over the week, looks much better now.... keeps the tank looking brighter too.



All the plants are growing fast and very healthy... the Blyxa Japonica is starting to grow very dense so i'll need to trim them soon too.

Eleocharis sp. 'Mini'  has now fully covered the front section of the tank and creating a nice carpet, very well behaved and grows to only 2-3cm height (haven't even needed to trim it so far).

Green fuzzy algae on the wood seems to be pretty much the same, it looks like the combination of Neocaridina Heteropoda and Crossocheilus Siamensis are helping to keep it in check.
