Brownie 2011 is doing really well in 45p. This was initially placed in 60p but I shifted it in other tank due to constant algae issues in main scape. I’ll probably shift half of this back again in 60p this month
The stem plants are doing really well including the Ludwiga super red which has usually been quite finicky for me. Before going for a vacation, I shuffled their location with rotala blood red SG because I want to create a dense canopy near pearl weed bush.
One thing that I have noticed about rotala blood-red SG is how upright it grows! and I absolutely love it. It also retains deep red hues even when your nitrates are significantly higher (mine are circa 10ppm).
As for ferns, they are doing well too ever since I started dosing a little bit more SaltyShrimps Gh+ but unfortunately, they have got some Staghorn algae on them. I suspect that's because of the excess organic waste on the scape. I have a feeling that I have overstocked this scape. I am thinking about increasing the water change frequency to twice a week 50% instead of once a week because there is always a lot of junk in the foreground. It's also the place where I have some BGA in the scape.
But other than this, the scape is overall doing really well.
The colours and textures one the last photo are awesome.
I found it to be a fine balance with that shape scape and stems in the back... need to keep the stems low enough not to cut the circulation off round the back, no easy task with the Rotalas, trim! trim! trim!
