I think there has been some growth. Life would be complete if the algae would go away :) hopefully the H2O2 treatment works as it was fizzing merrily away on the algae.

Also like the tank much better with the backing on.

Water change, clean internal filter, H2O2 algae treatment and shift an Anubias under shade hopefully then a crypt to where Anubias was. Clean up stem plants - I like these ones but so does the algae. I think that’s the most maintenance in several months. Some sort of time warp happened though as several hours have vanished :)

My moss covered green rocks turned up in post (impulse buy while looking for retaining wall blocks as you do). Look great, very realistic - soaking in bathroom tub where they are also excellently floating sigh...

Latest tank photo this morning with the seachem flourite black added and bolbitis fern cleaned back. Added more crypts and stem plants.

I think my lighting is a bit less but will see how the red stem plants go. Bolbitis may have a new shoot - watched very closely!! The H2O2 cleaned off some BBA off anubias - mostly shifted to middle of tank to hide it as didn’t have the heart to throw it out.

Came across a note not to use furan2 with live plants sigh. The bolbitis continues to decline. Think I’ll buy some more plants this weekend. I’m still hoping some will bounce back. From memory last time the plants just stopped growing and gradually withered away.
