So I am officially around 3-4 days in and a lot has happened with the tanks:
The 10gal spiked to extremely high level of ammonia ( wont even say how high) *Did 25% water change and added bacteria supplement* Will do another change tomorrow...

Today with 27 Gallon:
-Added Flourish Comp for plants.
-Moved the lonely Cory over to the 27gal
-Bought 4 more Corys to accompany him.

*Had to take a BWT to the LFS as he was attacking all of the other Tetras in the tank.
Many of them had resorted to hiding in the tank.
Also he was eating all of their food.
--Odd thing was when I went to fish him out he completely dropped the blackness of his tail so I had to continue to watch to make sure I had actually captured the right one.--

Right now the Corys are extremely happy! They cant decide on who gets to lay on top of each other. They started their new exploration today by "burrowing" around the edges of my plants. Lost a stem off one of my bigger plants.

Just wanted to post an updated photo. We can't believe how much the tank has grown in such a short amount of time.

Yes indeed.

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 youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Thank you we are very proud of it. I am glad the teenager found something to focus on and he really enjoys it!
