OK so its been a few days. Ember Tetra are doing great, I added some more plants, and adjusted the wood/heater/filter to the final positions.
I love the ember tetra. They are so active. Still light in color, but I will be feeding frozen food soon so that should help, plus I'm sure they are still getting used to their surroundings.
I will be adding MTS this week thanks to DKRST. He is sending me ~100, mostly small ones. How many should I put in the 10 gallon to be my clean up crew/move my sand around? The rest will go in the 29 gallon with the eco complete. My zebra loaches may enjoy them.
While messing with my 29 gallon, I broke the roots of my dwarf lily off its bulb. Will that continue to sprout or did I kill the plant? If its ok I moved a couple of sprouts with roots in the back right corner to see if it would grow, and I planted the bulb in the 10 so it would grow faster.
I cant decide on final stocking, although I know I want sparkling gourami (donno how many) and a dwarf cory (I was thinking 7). If I did that I don't know if I could add a dwarf rasbora if I ever found them. My LFS has rasbora brittani but I don't like them. I would rather have mosquito rasbora. I would also up my ember tetra from 7 to 10 maybe because I like them.
Here is a pic of the tank now:
What is this on my substrate. Is it snail/ fish poop or junk from the wood/plants?
