I don't think this is cardamine lyrata, although feel free to prove me wrong.
Nice tank btw
How long did it take for your plants to start pearling so nicely?
yes, it has to grow in, but than it will look again great
Wish you could keep the rear bottom part of the wood visible ..
it is not h. leucocephala and it is not h. maritima...
what else grows like this beside cardamine?
i wish i could get a positive id, but it is pretty whatever it is, not as dominating as normal brazillian pennywort..
what do you mean juri?
try to keep the part of the wood in the red circle visible
i will try, there are so many plants, so little space
You need a bigger tank its looking great, well done
this one already takes up one whole wall in my lounge, my wife would kill me
no changes, just growing in...
glosso is growing slowly, starting to look pretty natural, i am still letting everything grow where i put it or where it has sprouted on its own..
compact glosso growth is good roud:also the other plants look helathy, but do I see little algae on the wood? :-"
@juri - the only cleanup crew in there is snails... i just added 3 siamese algae eaters today, will see how it goes, dont really have any other algae besides on the wood. if it doesnt go away, i will drop the water level and scrub it with excel...
I actually like the look of the algae. Makes it look more natural. Algae happens in nature so having some in your scape shouldnt be a crisis in my opinion
sorry dood, didnt see your question earlier. my lights came on at 14:00 and that was filmed around 19:00 so about 5hrs..
I think mine have levelled out a bit now. They also start after a few hours of lights on. They pearl more after the CO2 switches off.
Keeping getting better, filling in nicely now love glosso carpets, but enjoying my current HC one

Coming along nicely by the way, the mystery plant is a hydrocotyle, most likely maritima, it is however difficult to tell from the photo.
hey Garuf, plant is definitely cardamine
i can never seem to capture the essence of this tank in a photo, it looks so much better in real life
i have taken the wood out, it was using up valuable stem real estate. i know i was going for a lower maintenance scape, but i can't say no to new stems...
front, click for larger
so it looks like i am heading towards a dutch again..
