I love your tank! I just read the whole thread and your tank has really come a long way. I really like the Valls and am thinking about ordering some for along the back and maybe one side of my tank.

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

If you get them make sure to use root tablets with them. Also I think I have heard they don't fair well in soft water

When I first started this tank in April I bought a API master test kit plus the GH &KH test kit. I am glad I did as most stores around me either don't have a kit to test the water or I don't trust them to test it lol

Boredom, love your tank! Couple of questions, are the root tabs the only ferts you have used? And is that play sand that you used with the top soil? Thinking about using soil (Miracle Grow Organic Potting Mix) and play sand for my tank.

30 gallon:
6 Harlequin Rasbora
2 Bolivian Rams (1M/1F)
4 Corydoras Melanistius
2 Peppered Cory
1 Sunburst Platy (M)
1 Guppy (M)
