    HC does not fit me for this arrangement.

    Not sure how much it matters in this size tank (probably not much), but you look to be releasing your Co2 a bit close to the top.
    Could you lower this diffuser or is it this position for a certain reason?

    Refine the vegetation, wait until some algae cease to attack.

    Diffuser is changed, I look forward to the Ball Glass.

    Hi' Dawid,
    Nice set up ! I like the colour of your new background ;)

    What material did you use to make it ?

    I am pressed to see how it will evolve !
    Regards

    With the aquarium is a plate of white plexiglas, followed by the light T5 9W, easy to make, it gives great effect.

    somehow i dont like the way you trim your eleocharis.
    There are two possibilities in my eyes to make it better:
    1. Trim it extremely short, then there will be only new leaves visible
    2. Try to trim somehow diagonal stripes to make it look wild
    I also wonder why there are so less new leaves, maybe you really should trim it down to achieve a better grow

    I agree with you Jur4rik about the eleocharis trimming, but I think this tank need some time to mature. Eleo will send new leaves and they will hide or blend with old or trimmed leaves.

    I'm also sure that Jur4rik has mentioned the best method to get the best results.

    cheers

    cut it right to the floor, otherwise you'll have new and old leaves. the old leaves will end up being algae magnets.

    it will grow back stronger. the tank may look not so good but better in the long run, otherwise why do we do this hobby in the first place?

    Dawidzie, it is developing nicely. Slowly, but nice ;) I also like all the ADA stuff.
