    I really like the looks of it, it's nice to see a sparse plant in the background rather than the usual rotalla, keep it up it's a great scape. Good luck!

    You can try adding small rock spread it around the big rock to make it more natural. Also tie some moss on the tip of the wood to hide the cuttung mark.

    Its INTENSE Bazooka CO2 Atomizer..bought it for 10$ from guy in our local forum.it can produce super tiny bubbles,so far it is the most tiny bubble producer i've ever seen.
    but now i'm not using it.just purchased the inline one,and it produce smoke-like bubbles..^:)^

    and here's another update..

    Plants are filling in nicely. How many days did it take for the current state? After how many days do you intend to trim the glossostigma?

    very clean and simple setup! Beautiful!

    Congrats!

    I would suggest a bunch of redish plants in the focal point...

    thanks..the tank started on November 10th. after i took the latest photo,i trimmed down the glosso,only left the runner and leaves that grow low just above the substrate.i hope i can get the glosso to spread lower.

    thank you. i planned to add crypt wendtii or maybe downoi in mind. but the plant that garuf suggest is beautiful.i hope i can get it here..

    Very nice tank - latest I'm using HC in my scapes, but I'm always impressed by the beauty of glosso especially when I see it in some tank like this! Thinking on getting back to glosso!

    Nice Work! :)

    Hi,

    I think this algae is Staghorn. Is is black to grey/green. Probably your nitrates are too low.
