I love runny nose tetras, you're tank is beautiful lots of plants and color. The driftwood pieces are very nice as well.

That is coming along very well. You have had good growth in the crypts, that is your Flourite substrate working.

Have you thought about a couple of large plants that will grow up to the surface? I'm thinking along the lines of Echinodorus cordifolia, 2 would look stunning and also provide some surface cover which the rummys in particular would appreciate.

I was going to make some changes in the aquarium.

Nymphea Maculata seems that is not growing tall so i thought of moving it to left corner between Rotala Indica and Crypt (have to move crypt more to the front)

Instead of the Nymphea I will do something that grows a bit tall maybe another Echinodorus species as you suggested.

Also i have a few problems that are Vallisneria Spirals & Echinodorus Tenellus are not doing so well. Seems that few shoots are giving away and a lot of the old leaves are melting. What could be the cause?

Is this worse than the little that shows in the photos in the first post in this thread? Can you post a photo of both plant species?

About NPK
So i have 12.5mg/l Nitrate and 0 Phosphate in my aquarium. Should I apply http://www.seachem.com/support/PlantDoseChart.pdf this method so that i could increase phosphate and nitrogen for plants?

I will not use Excel since I have co2 in my aquarium.

I will not do nothing on Day 7.

Thanks

Pearling Rotala Indica


Cryptocoryne Lucens


Nymphea Maculata (I need to change the place because it is not tall and with driftwood it is hidden what a shame)

The Bushy Cryptocoryne Wendtii Tropica


Behind the Silver Angel you can see the air bubbles out of the Crypt Wendtii Tropica


Any comments are welcome :)
