    Don't worry about the shrimplets, some will get eaten which is unavoidable. But with so many hiding place in your tank I'll say most will be able to survive to adulthood.
    Thanks bro, yeah i thought i will just leave them alone. Don't have much experience with shrimps thou, previously had a nano tank with just shrimps and plants but they just don't get berried. Seeing a berried shrimp now in my tank gets me really excited. Don't know when i can see shrimplets

    Hey bro, yup planning to remove a patch of browning HM at the back and replace with some red plants, i thought of ludwigia senegalensis, previously AA had them but not sure if still available. Btw i change to a Ista inline CO2 reactor after your recommendation and now my tank is finally free of millions of tiny bubbles . I just couldn't get the top impeller to spin even after sanding down the edges, so i just removed it. Hope its still efficient

    Anyone here has experience with elatine hydropiper? I saw Tom Barr's post on other forums and his hydropiper's leaves at mostly flat whereas mine is more of pointing upwards.

    This is Tom Barr's hydropiper

    Your slope looks very steep, do you use any enforcement to prevent the top layers from sliding down? Btw how's the stainless steel pipes, will they rust?

    Hi bro, i use those black honeycomb crates to achieve the slope before covering it with aquasoil. I also insert those corrugated plastic cut outs to hold the substrate in place. So far the slope is still ok. I also refrain from putting amanos until the plant roots are fully established, these guys will level out any slopes given time

    Stainless steel pipes still looks new, no rust. Very good buy IMO.

    Hi bro! As compared to MC or HC, hydropiper is considered less common. Mine is from tropica 1-2 grow and LFS do sell them periodically but the stocks are not so consistent. Hydropiper's growth is rather slow so i don't need to trim it often

    Reading that if it’s pointing upwards, it’s generally either the light is not strong enough, or co2 is insufficient. Think i heard this from Dennis Wong in YouTube. FYI.

    Hi bro, same thoughts. For past 5 days i increased my kessil light intensity from 60% to 80%, but no luck with the leaves. Instead, those long strand hair algae started to appear
