    Updated FTS, need to add some more almond leaf tea bags, water is a fair bit lighter. Still loosing buce leafs daily, they just dont like this tank.

    Tried to take a few macro photos today, camera just wasn't playing nice, only got a few interesting snaps, fish are looking good since starting to feed live micro worms, couldn't really get any good super close up photos, reflections where driving me crazy for some reason.

    Added two more otos today, have 4 now along with the 20-30 boraras, all in all not much has changed with this tank since I set it up, very slow growing, which is what I wanted, fair bit of BBA on the wood but i hit it with h2o2 every now and then to keep it in check, plants are fairly algae free, buce never really flourished in this tank and i loose leafs faster then they put out new leafs.

    Looking good Doyle Buce is probably not getting the amount of light it needs? Blackwater blocks out a fair bit of light in my experience.

    Also Buce will drop leaves if ferts are lacking. I have some growing in very dark areas of the tank, very slowly but don't drop leaves.

    Cheers guys, I just think there is something about this tank the buce doesnt like, maybe low ph? Ferts are the same as my 30cm cube which is very very dark and the buce grows fine in that without dropping leaves. Buce grows in this tank but not as well as my other tanks, does no really bother me, just loving that I have never had to trim this tank!

    Tank looks great! I love it

    I agree with you, maybe could be the low ph. My buces have done well in dark shade and no ferts, but I've never tried in low ph tho so not sure.
