    Thanks everyone ^-^

    The specs however are not fully correct. I have several more plants species but now my memory is hazy, and also a few less. I definitely don't have Pogostemon Octopus anymore, that stuff grows dangerously fast! And I barely have any glosso after a long struggle to remove most of it :eek:

    Also have a clown pleco and thanks to @JCL some sterbai corries too :) Happy days.
