so the tank is going great as usual. just did a cleaning and a little trimming on it. i had some strands of the utricularia graminifolia that just wanted to grow straight up towards to the top of the tank so cut that out. the carpet is almost full but i do have a few spots where the utri seems to be just alittle lifted off the substrate and im not sure why. i also have a few spots here and there where it doesnt seem like the utri even wants to try and cover but hoping after more time it will. im am very very very pleased with these finnex planted + lights. they are just perfect. in 2 weeks of not cleaning the tank there was a little algae on the glass but barely noticeable. i had to get really close to the tank to even really see it.
a few pics from a fishing trip of the mean looking animals we have in our mississippi waters..
you can barely see it but they have very sharp small teeth
