I have some of those in another tank that I can pull over to fill in gaps :)

Also, why do AE never have any plants in stock?!! PFFFT!

I realise I haven't undated this in ages. Truth is, it's been pretty neglected over the last few months with me being away a lot. I've let the plants take over and it's turning into a bit of a jungle. The fish are loving it though! Had a bit of a BBA outbreak when a dodgy connection from the CO2 solenoid to the timer meant that it had no CO2 for about 10 days without me noticing, but that's on the retreat now that the gas is blasting again.
Here's a quick picture of the tank as of the other day. Going to need to thin out the blyxa soon so if anyone's interested then give me a shout. You'll likely see it in the classifieds soon enough.
This is it now:

How tall does cyprus helferi grow roughly? I've got it behind the aponogeton behind the biggest rock and don't know if it's going to get tall enough to look right...
