    Wow, it grew a lot!
    Yes, it is looking very healthy, Tim(y)
    What is growing above in the cracks of the root? HC?

    Try HC for root cracks in the moment, but my fish and amanos and even snails work them often out again :mad:

    Thanks Evelyn, it's Riccardia. Never really been that successful with it. But I've always used superglue to attach it and I'm thinking it doesn't like it, so it's just wedged this time. Hopefully, it'll grow.

    HC usually takes quite well to epiphytic type growth, if you persist I'm sure it'll out pace your fish and amanos eventually :)

    Thank you Tim,
    yes, riccardia is such a pretty plant :love: - but I also had always problens with it after a while - and it is rare and very expensive here.
    I think its leves are too "soft" for superglue.
    Hmmm - maybe with my new LED lights I could be more successful... (n)

    Your tank is extremely relaxing to watch one reason it looks so natural and not man made.

    Quick update. Gave the scape a good trim yesterday. The stems have been trimmed several times but this was the first time I've trimmed the MC carpet. The stauro was also looking ropey in places (old emersed leaves hanging on) so that got hacked back as well.
    I had to get rid of the male ram, it was bullying the female, and pretty much every fish in the tank, not the most relaxing viewing, and the female was beginning to look drawn and ill. She's recovering still but is looking much better.

    Shame about the Ram Tim, I didnt have too much trouble with mine but I guess it maybe because it was a large tank at the time and my little group of Clown Loaches were always on the move and distracted the Rams. The last male spent his time patroling the front of the tank.More bravado than bullying

    Thanks Paraguay, he was a bit of a monster in size and temperament. I got them as sub-adults and he was a similar size to the female, but then he just kept on growing and she didn't. I guess he saw her as competition and not girlfriend material :rolleyes: I haven't given up I'll keep a watch out for a suitable male replacement.
