Well, I haven't had any issues with any crawlies yet, and 90% of my plants are the tubed ones, so I concur lol They don't have a lot of variety of plants though, and 75% aren't true aquatic plants *sigh* But, I do well enough with anubias, java fern, and amazon sword.

Rearranged Sonas' tank today, after cleaning out a huge infestation of diatoms (which I'm still fighting).

Yep. Its a serious pain XD I did two 90% water changes on that tank last night, just trying to clean off as much of it as I can. Couldn't do a full change, considering the tank is cycled.

I wouldn't care about it, except that it chokes out my plants! My anubias and aponogeton are really suffering for it, unless I clean everything out at least once a week. I've lost a lot of leaves on my Amazon swords too.
