Very nice. I have a similar setup with dwarf hair grass but instead of rotala rotundifolia I have rotala wallichii. Did you encounter any algae issues with this setup?

Thank you very much. Yes i do have algae issues. The snails do an amazing job at keeping it off the glass and plants but the rock in the middle stays covered in it. I also have to do a 50% water change every 3 days or it starts to become very green. I haven't had any issues with algaes like hair algae or blackbeard though. Im pretty sure its being caused by the lights im using. Its really hard to find lights for this tank that give good enough coverage to grow plants all over.
