My 10 gallon has gone through a lot since I first bought it. I setup the tank nicely before, but there is this wierd fuzzy green brown algae + diatoms in my tank. The substrate got all uneven and yuck and covered everything, my swords all lost their leaves (I kept one and stripped its dead leaves.. ugh they turned out terrible) My anubias as you can tell in one pic was once under diatom attack... And I can't ever seem to get the algae off ANYTHING. My tank sort of "collapsed" look wise. So I re-arranged everything. There's still the Mucky algae over every thing that I can't remove, but here are the (huge) pics of my new arrangment. Inspired by youtube planted tanks
pic 1: tank when I first set it up
pic 2: today
pic 3: driftwood center-piece (non of the plants are tied on and all the live plants except my sword is on it) Note the anubias that was attacked by diatoms >.>
pic 4: sludge on my silk plant. What is it, anyways? I want it to die.
