That hygro looks pretty tempting.!

Always wanted to do a moss wall though (although do get a bit of flow from filters I guess).

Tank has cleared a bit and looks ..... somewhat ..... boring lol. Still getting used to it. It's definitely simple. Needs another water change and remove more floating roots but getting there. Some anubias, lots of java fern and a clump of bolbitus - and I have to confess tank base is decently covered by plants so possibly, just maybe it was a bit jam-packed before.

Photos of CO2 reactors - first one has never been cleaned really. Needs a clean but still running quiet even though a bit of dirt on it. Bubbles everywhere.



The second has much lower CO2 bubble count but is not as quiet and getting clogged with roots again. Needs I think a fourth clean.



Also need to do some tank testing on ammonia but mainly been testing pool so been a little slack. But testing pool a lot as was 36C (96F) last night from solar blanket.

Added back in some driftwood - few small pieces. My excuse is it was for the catfish / maybe hide the CO2 reactors but all that space in tank is disconcerting...
