No longer a forest, turned into a jungle (inside and outside the tank). Testing out a new grow light I just setup on 2/10. Established & stable, only maintenance is water top offs and sporadic feeding.

Replanted the gardenia in the back to a planter the length of the tank


Top-down, a couple plants are almost to the water surface

RCS taking over the tank, fish wait their turns for food


Some bronze ramshorns, don't think I ever took a pic


I don't think this guy is a c. habrosus, he's larger, a little yellow/red-ish hue, and does not school with the rest
