the tank is a cube 15 ciano.
i've swapped lighting for a nicrew 7w led
recently swapped out the filter that came with the tank for a eden 511 filter

the rear of the tank is densely planted.

these are the only products i've been using .
i've been doing frequent water changes, every 3 days.
substrate and soil both tropica.
no algae
i'm only giving plants 6 hours of light.

Nice looking tank! Be careful with those Nerite climbing out of the tank. You can try adding a thin layer of vaseline near the tank's ridge to act as an invisible fence.
