Only a couple of changes with the pond, removed the twig at the front as the growth was shading everything and pushed the coral moss down to create a little more swim space
complete photo shoot needed ... there is an addiction (among some ;)) that has not been met by this single parsimonious photographic display :sorry:

(please)

The recovery is still going well. I think I'm at nearly 8 weeks of rehabilitation since my mistake with the CO2. Mopping up the last bits of algae with Excel. Never used it before and I have to say, it's pretty potent stuff.

Black brush algae (or staghorn?) in my carpet:

Day 2: Replaced the next day with pink dead algae

Did you dose Excel with a syringe directly on to and in between the carpet?

Things got a little hectic recently and I had to put the tank on auto pilot for the past five months. The tank has been running without any CO2 and minimal water changes/fertilisers for that time.

Sorry - I’ll try and update more frequently.

If that's a current picture after 5 months of autopilot, no CO2 or ferts and infrequent water changes then:

1, you have a beautiful teeny tiny tank that is as balanced as say BigToms :clap:

2, and I've gone right off you :lol:

Glad to see you back Mr. Teapot :D

Building work on my house forced me to ask a relative to look after both tanks with the expected consequences. I’m aiming to start a new journal in the new year...hopefully!
Awww...

Since I just signed up here a few days ago, I gotta say: I have lost count of how many times I've read this journal. Such a beautiful tank, and a huge inspiration.
Looking forward to whatever you make next.

You have inspired me to merge emersed growing with my new aquascape. Just wish that there was a suitable pitcher plant I could easily obtain. Might have to go with orchids
