sorry my bad lol at first glance it looked like they had poped out of the sand.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

I'm not sure, haha. My dad got it for me. Used to be in another aquarium.

Yesterday my wife bought me a BN Pleco for the planted tank. She acclimated it but put it right into the tank instead of the quarantine tank. I am keeping a very close eye for diseases but have found they are pretty resilient fish. Today we went and got 6 Cherry Barbs for the planted tank and BN Pleco for the corner tank, those are in the quarantine tank. My kiddo wanted her pic taken so thought I'd share.




I moved my Albino Cory to the planted tank because my Angels were nipping at him. Well, he is doing great and loves the sand substrate. He's digging under the rocks and driftwood. Wish I would have had sand for him from the start.

Well I switched the filter intake and output to opposite sides of the tank, the rocks have been restacked a little bit different after cleaning and the plants have all grow and been trimmed. Other than that, not really.

I literally just asked my wife if she liked the tank. She said it's great. I told her because I look at some people's tanks and go "wow, that's amazing!" Mine I'm just like "I think it's pretty good." Maybe it'll look better after the plants fill in more?

Yea, I know what you mean, I look at mine and think it's ALMOST there. I mean it doesn't look terrible, I just want it to be done. I want to buy some more things this weekend, hopefully my moms up to it.
