Not a huge update this week. Emersed plants are now 2ft high and flowering like mad so will be trimmed this weekend.

I'd love to do that with my tank but eurobracing makes emersed plants awkward, not to mention the several dead fish and a dead cat that I'd likely end up with.

😂 yeah it’s always a risk going open top especially with jumpy fish.

Thank you. It’s a bit more work than normal and slightly annoying that plants want to grow towards the natural light and not upwards, but I’ll figure something out for that at some point.

Just keep your eyes on the other fishes' eyes... ;)
If at first you don't succeed....

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

Yup, all good! I was hoping it wouldn’t be so I could set up another tank 🤣
