Love how your 10 gallon is looking at moment. I fail at actually planning planted tanks. I just end up plopping the plants wherever and hoping for the best and that they grow and stuff lol. Blue boy is a pretty boy.
Yeah. The algae is annoying!!! I fortunately scrubbed it out this morning before leaving the house... But I left the fish light on do I expect there to be more when I come back

Lol, thank you Feng! I actually attempted to aquascape this tank, but I don't have those planting tweezers so it's VERY DIFFICULT to plant the stem plants!!! I've tried using regular tweezers but they're just wayyyy to tiny! I just plopped in the Mayaca and although I'm annoyed with how it's placed so far, I'll eventually spread it evenly among the tank. I also am considering on taking the 2 pieces of driftwood, it's just way to big!

Well, the Java Fern tied to the driftwood was gaining a lot of algae, so I just set it in another cycling tank. But I did a trimming for the Rotala Rotundifolia! These things grow fast! Here are photos :)

After I trimmed the Rotala:



Rotala Clippings:



I thought a few clippings like these were cool. The actual Rotala it came from was leaning so when it shot out new stems they started growing towards the light.



Final product after I decided to take out that big driftwood piece. I think I'm just going to let the Rotala and Mayaca grow in and get some more plants. I really love that driftwood piece but it just doesn't fit to well in this tank.

Update! The plants are doing absolutely great! The Mayaca is doing so well it's pearling!!!

And the Rotala clipping I planted already started sprouting on the top! It looks really cool.

Here are 2 photos of the plants (with a curious Endler):
