Looking great! I envy how nice and green your plants look! I agree, a black background would look great :)

just a question about my baby shrimp.. i cant see them i havnt seen then.. and the bigger ones arnt hiding in the grass anymore (where i thought the little ones might be) would the big shrimp eat the babies.. i also want to do a bit of a rescape but im scared what will happen to the babies if theres any there.. and there is a fair bit of algea growing on the glass... can i just get 1 or 2 snails to hammer that??

I have no idea what that is, but I just wanted to tell you how nice your tank is looking. I enjoyed seeing the development of this tank over time and I am so appreciative that you posted all these pictures. I had never even heard of this type of tank before.

I hope someone can help you with your growth question, but I just wanted to chime in to give you a compliment and say "thanks" for posting all of the pictures!

Hope you find an answer to that last question. One of my community tanks has the exact same thing going on, especially on the java moss. Sometimes it gets all over my rocks and even the sand. It doesn't seem like algae but I can't really point my finger on what it could be. It seems to come and go, though.

Ten free red cherries? Sheesh.

Love the dark sand. The twin 24W fixture is a lot of power for a 10 gallon tank.

I liked the white better. But I love the light. I have seen the white stuff on the java moss before. I just thought it was the dead bits, never really paid attention I guess.

I see that stuff right before it turns into black fuzzy algae... You may want to look into a co2 system.

And just before you laid dead weight upon its shores, I stung you in the face for that's the nature of my core.
