I got a japan blue guppy from my secret santa today! :O
I have to figure out what to do with this single male fishy! He's super friendly, and was practically eating the moment he hit the tank. Definitely signs fish who had a very close relationship with his breeder!



I moved the driftwood to catch the bristlenose pleco and couldn't stuff it back in its original position without creating a muddy tornado. I also didn't want to accidentally squish any snails/ shrimps by accident pushing the wood back down. So now it sits higher than it used to sit...not too terrible, but will definitely look better with some hair grass growing on the left hand side behind the moss rocks.



The HC on driftwood is showing some interesting growth patterns, itms growing downwards!



look, a ramshorn flower!!!



I finally got my PAR levels on this tank today. the HC gets around 170PAR... The unshaded substrates gets 60-80

interestingly the source is only got about 1/2 the par reading my cfl is showing, but perhaps due to the directional nature of leds, and the way my desktop cfl lamp is positioned more light from the led is hitting the substrate. This is just my observations and speculations, im by no means a lighting expert.

Beautiful small tank.so full of life and nature, and so green! So nice to see green stuff in the middle ofa long,cold , barren upstate NY winter. Excellent photography too.
Thank you, and best of luck to you and your fish ( and shrimp, snails, worms, plants...)

tee-hee, a ramshorn flower! <3 How sweet!

I am so giggling that your secret Santa got you a GUPPPY!!!! *giggles*
(my secret santa got me the most amazing crypt I have ever seen O.O - thank you again, Kitty! ^_^)
At least it's a single male, so you won't get over-run. . . you know I'm not a huge guppy fan, but he is BEAUTIFUL! I love that shimmery blue, it really pops out against the darkness of the driftwood. . . what are you going to do with him? He stays???! *nods* Ish pretty!!!

The tank continues to grow in gorgeousness each time you show it - I like the wood just fine as it is now, and must agree. . . neither dirty tornadoes nor squashed inverts are a good thing. The HC is such a lovely plant, and growing so well for you in here (and really. . . everywhere you have it, neh?! Green thumb!) I love how it's growing along the driftwood, and down suits the scape to a "T."

I wanna get ahold of a PAR meter sooooo bad!!! Thanks for the information. I *DO* consider you a lighting pro, at least compared to me! >.<

I feel like I never have anything to say here except *SWOOOOOON* But it is what it is! Love it Ao - and all of your *other* tiny tanks, too! Speaking of other tiny tanks. . . how's the terrarium growing? I feel like it's been ages since I've seen it (of course I can't talk, having never managed to get a pic uploaded of mine! *fails*)

*demands more pics*

My emersed tanks have been largely the same :) I pulled stuff out for the last swap meet so it's rather bare. Winter also means dormancy for most of these plants :) I did get a buce yesterday! i'll post a pic up when I can!
