My plants were ugly, ridden with hair- and black brush algae, and the entire tank was an overgrown mess. Most of all, my dwarf sag carpet was suffering deficiencies, despite an EI dosing regiment, high light, and 30+ ppm CO2. SOOOO... decided to start over. It'll take some time, but I am very happy with the results. Octopus plant, pellia, java moss, foxtail, c. retrospiralis, and a. ulvaceous, along with some great looking driftwood. Hoping it looks nice once the aponogeton and crypts fill out.
