Just a word of caution. I see that the hair algae is starting to grow. From experience it can be a pain. Granted I pulled it out by hand all the time. If not it would start to get out of control. I ended up taking out some of the lava rocks that it was attached to. Did a partial water change as well. Slowly it's getting under control.
Thanks for the advice vorteil! for now the hair algae its not growing too much, the Ruppia maritima its even flowering :lol: I didnt expect it since my tank its low light (only 5 wat bulb)

Ruppia maritima flowers

I noticed this shrimp with the abdomen and pleopods so well developed, when they arrived most of the shrimps were juveniles but now this one looks a mature female hopefully she will have eggs soon
