I'm actually away from my tank right now. I haven't seen it since Tuesday, but when I left some of the larger leaves were certainly melting. Some of the smaller ones looked fine, so I'm hoping they will be okay when I get back. I'll be sure to let you know what happened. Maybe my soft water will make a difference.

Cute loaches - are they coolie loaches?? I thought you can only get them in Tiger stripes....
Thank you! I love that piece of wood, too! I found it on Aquariumplants.com. I have a horrible selection at my local pet stores, so I had to look online. They are kuhli loaches! Well they're members of the Pangio genus most of which are called kuhli loaches. Sometimes they're called cinnamon loaches, tho, but most of the time I hear them called brown kuhli loaches.

Oh wow, I am loving how this is turning out. I do hope all the plants bounce back quickly.

Thanks, Sang! When I was home last (now visiting family for the holidays) the plants looked pretty good. The lotus was already sprouting another leaf and the crypts had lost a few more leaves but the smaller leaves looked like they were growing. I hope to see some improvement when I return home on Saturday.

Man! I can't wait until the first of the year! I got money for Christmas and it's time to start stocking the tank! ^-^

Jentra, I have Estes Ultra Reef black sand. It's really really soft. And the loaches love playing in it. I couldn't find it anywhere locally and had to order it online. But it was much softer than any black sand I could find locally.

Olympia!!

That said... I got home today from my family vacation. All the plants and fish look just fine. The crypts actually look better than when I left! New growth on them as well as the lotus.

I'm currently hunting the internet for some P. oblonga or really any Pangio I can get with decent shipping. And of course that coveted Farlowella. I've also changed my mind and going to do a trio of honey gourami instead of the single thicklips gourami.

That's wonderful to hear that the crypts are doing well. Great to hear your plants are doing well.

^-^ I just found a place that sells farlowella for a good price with good shipping. After the New Year holiday I'm ordering them... well one. I'm still trying to find a place that sells Pangio without a minimum order. I'm lucky in that the Petsmart near me carries both male and female honey gourami. I checked them out before I left for Ohio, but the gourami are the fish I'm adding last to avoid any aggression. Plus, they are the ones I will have to QT for the longest time as they come from not the greatest conditions.
