Coming along fine. I would get more rummys, soon, though. Another 6-9 to end up with 12-15.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Looking good - might suggest a background, even if just black poster board. WM carries some decent, inexpensive backgrounds for 55g (may need to trim a little for less height for yours is all). I have one on my 60g (much better than black).

The lilly looking one is echinodorus ozelot and the crinkly one i think is crinum natans but dont quote me on that! I kept the cards that came with them and put them in some sort of order which my brain has forgotten
