hehe alright big update. didn't think anyone even saw this so I didn't bother but alright here it comes.
Here is the tank to this day:
4 Harlequin Rasboras (one died due to stress I'm sure cus my water parameters checked out and it didn't look like there was any diseases on it, was acting weird anyways, wouldnt shoal with the others, will be getting 6 more this friday)
5 False Julii corys
1 BN Pleco
1 Female betta
Now.... something i find interesting... if you take a look at the original post... you can see how small that amazon sword is. My cycle.... only took me about 4 weeks. This is the amazon sword now, during that 4th week that my tank finished cycling and after I got fish in. That tall leaf in the back... is over 3" long. Slow-grower my tailfin! Oh and thats Tiger Festival, the female betta in the shot <3 I love her so much, so calm and inquisitive.
My anubias sprouted a new leaf too that last week of cycling. it's still a bright baby green but its growing more each day. I guess I must have good ferts, though they're nothin special just API root tabs and Jobes Fertalizer sticks. I did get API liquid ferts but that was after my tank finished cycling so I've only dosed once, but it was after those two plants exploded. No CO2.
