So did maintenance properly on the 45 yesterday first trim and big clean happy with the stem growth mc/hc hasn't grown as much as I'd like but it will kick in I hope

took the stems right back and replanted all the tops hopefully it will get a lot thicker and look better some gsa on the glass but I always get this no matter what I try so I just live with it not really a issue

Looking good Jay. How far from the bottom of the stems did you trim them bud? Just trying to work out if I trim my stems too high up or not. Lol.

So does that GSA not get any worst than that? Suppose if it doesnt get out of control, gives it a more natural look right :D

I trimmed mine to about a inch mate the substrate is quiet high in the back of the rocks so wanted new shoots to grow from behind the rocks if that makes sense

Just seems to stay mostly on the glass and not cover the plants unless I let it get bad on the glass does coat the rocks but only very slightly nothing that a tooth brush cant get off and it's only noticeable if I.leave it a couple of weeks but I generally brush the rocks every water change and tend to use my sand flatterner with kitchen roll to clean the glass maybe twice a week if it needs it only takes 5 mins in such a small tank

Yeah that makes sense. I think I need to start trimming mine a little further down :thumbup:

At least your keeping on top of it. You got anything in the tank that will munch on it to keep it back too?
