Since it's been a month since I last updated I thought this tank was due for some pictures! Not much has changed, but the crypts are looking much better now. Had some melting but also some regrowth. The cardinals are completely settled in and act like they own the place. The gourami are still ... well gourami. And the loaches like to mess up my pictures.



I have actually ordered more cardinals as well as my amano shrimps, but they won't be here until next week. The seller is traveling and won't be back until the weekend. I'm not too sure if I'll be able to get any good pictures of them, but I'll certainly try!

Thanks, everyone! I'm really really happy with the way this turned out. I was a bit disappointed until I got those crypts in there. Now I love it!!

Sang, I have to leave it on a longer exposure because the lighting is so low. The loaches were doing some loach aerobics tonight. This is the ONLY picture where there isn't a long, blurry brown streak right in the middle of the frame. I'm just glad I didn't try one at mealtime... you guys saw the video!

Absolutely beautiful! So many different leaf shapes growing happily together. You've inspired me to keep trying with my plants. I have a hole where the cabomba all but disappeared!

Plants can be a bit (read: pull your hair out) challenging, but they are so worth it! I used to have a hole on the right side because the dwarf sag and dwarf chain sword would just not grow. But it was simply a matter of finding the right plants to go there. My crypts flourished, so I added more and different ones. Never thought I would end up with a mostly-crypt tank, but that's just how it works out sometimes! Point is to never give up! There is a plant for every tank!!

I also thought it would be neat to pull one of my old tank shots back here so everyone can see how far it has come.
