    Update time:

    The tank is algaefied. Brown diatom algae. All of the old hairgrass leaves have died but new leaves are clearly visible. The hygro has started putting out its submersed form of leaf - it looks really nice. Fish have been added - 4 x emerald rasbora and 2 x betta brownorum. I am sure as the plant mass increases the algae will decrease. At the moments its just too much light for such a small amount of plants

    Currently its not worthy of pics.
    Didnt think of that actually. I killed most of my shrimp last week - overdosed peroxide as i was fed up with BBA. Over the next few days I lost many, many shrimp and a few older fish.

    did you try adding SAEs, apparently they pretty good with BBA, and mollies
