So, the tanks been up and running for 2 weeks now.
The filter was unkind to the Ulvacea I put in on the left side, and the Rotala over there wasn't doing very well either so I did a little rearranging and added a few more plants.
I added in another Echinodorus Bleheri, an Ozelot Sword, a couple of Argentinian Swords (One of my favorite swords) and some Lilaeopsis Brasiliensis.
Also having some Crypt-melt, so we'll see how that goes.
One of my original Amazon Swords is becoming quite the adventitious plant factory with leaves sprouting at several of the nodes on it's inflorescence:
It looks like the Ulvaceous that was doing better is going to flower, it's grown two of these:
The Harlequin Rasbora are doing nicely, but with only 13 of them the tank seems pretty empty.
I think I may keep the Gourami in the quarantine for 1 more week, but he's had 3 already and I'd like to get on with more fish for the big tank
I know that I was leaning toward one big shoal of the Harlequins, but there are just so many types of fish I'd like to have it's hard to keep that resolution.
I am thinking about either Diamond Tetra or Head and Tail Light Tetra as a second mid-water shoal to add a little variety to the bulk of the tank.
I would go with 7 of the Diamonds or 11 of the Head and Tail Lights.
