Nice job! Your tank looks lovely. I am sure your fish will be happy with the plants. :)

Thanks!

The corys have taken refuge in the back left corner where it is the most dense.

The tetras are the same, but the ghost shrimp came out of hiding under the driftwood to inspect.

Leave it to the shrimp to be the brave ones. ha ha My Peppered Cories hang out in the back of my tank under plants and wood but my Albino Cories are always visible in the front. I find it interesting that they are so different. I wasn't excited about how the Albino Cories looked BUT I find them to be some of the most fun to watch.

LOL! That's great man! Looks nice! On the "spill over", that's a never ending circle man. The 10 gallon will fill up, then you'll buy a 5.5 gallon to handle that spill over, then when that one is full, a 2 gallon to take up those leftovers, then a 1 gallon! Yes this was me a while back, I was like a crack addict, lol! I couldn't stop! Now its just a 20g, 10g, and a 5.5g.

I get along better with my fish, than most people.

Gotta love ghost shrimp! 4 for $1 and they entertain to no end! I'm sure the rest of the inhabitants will follow their good example and start exploring soon.

Alright so... A few days later, are you still happy with your new plants? I ordered some from that company and now, I just found out there was an issue with Paypal so I have to re-order. Guess it gives me another chance to look over the plant options. ha ha
How long did it take from the moment you ordered to when they were delivered?

What kind of filter do you have on? Looks like a Whisper.

I have a lily as well. They do grow from a bulb, but eventually break off when they get big enough. Thats one of the ways they reproduce.

I got three lilies from 1 bulb over time... Every time the bulb sprouts again and the process starts again.

How much did you pay for the plants?

I ordered Friday afternoon, they shipped Monday and arrived Wednesday. Everything is doing well, the Lily is having a rough time, but that wasn't too unexpected as I had read they can be really hard to ship.

Overall I'm happy.

It is the one that came with the tank, which is a top fin filter (PetSmart brand). Not sure what name they give to their filters.

i have tiger lotus in my 20 long. It came as a bulb, but after almost a year the bulb just kinda... came off. I reburied it for a few weeks but then threw it away. Guess I should have stuck with it lol

for some reason it seems like that lotus ALWAYS bounces back. Ive had it down to 1 leaf!
