Oooooh! That tank is just taking off now! I can't wait for the new additions, and am so happy that your pretty greens are doing so well :) Good luck on the loach hunt. What IS it with loaches? I swear, they were so super common a year or two ago, so silly that you have to order them online! How many more will you be getting?

^-^ I'm so excited! I can't contain it. Over the weekend I got in contact with an awesome seller who is shipping me my farlowella tomorrow!!! The pictures will be crappy. But. There. Will. Be. Pictures.

Oh ya... and I decided to add some red cherry shrimp to the tank. Those will be coming in with the farlowella.

Next come the pangio loaches!!!!!!

THEY'RE HERE!!!!! They arrived today around noon, and I spent a few hours acclimating everyone. I put them in the tank about 4p. Everyone looks healthy and is eating a ton. (To be fair, there is a ton of algae on the glass). Now for the pictures!! ^-^


This is a whole tank shot. You really can't see the farlowella or the RCS here because they are so small. But you can see that I moved that piece of wood on the right to the far back. It was blocking circulation to the plants back there, so the wood and the plants switched places.


The shrimp move too fast! This was the only one that stood still for any length of time. I guess he found something good to eat right there.

And now... my farlowella.. who I have named Sturgeon because he kinda looks like one.



It's not in focus on the farlowella but I still like it.

Boredomb, BWG and Chesh like this.

They are really neat. Certainly not your average algae-eater.

Yup! He's a baby! Just about 5 inches long. I'm glad he still has growing to do. It means he'll have an appetite for algae!

Aww they are so cute. The tank looks great too. I'm glad you got that figured out with the circulation.
