Looks like you're off to a good start! Who lives there? :) You'll have to keep us posted. I love Vals, but they never really thrived for me in my softer water. Bummer. . .hopefully you'll have better luck!

Just keep cramming plant's in the tank.
Choose tankmates for the Buenos aires carefully.

my vals are growing very slowly after all the corkscrew val pretty much all died. there is new growth just real slowwwww............. java ferns havent died or grown... jungle val seems stable. not dying just slowly growing new lil guys/gals. wisteria is all gone along with water sprite and the newly ordered salvinia minima all got ate... swords died back a lot but have about 5 new leaves one both plants. dosing once a week with flourish comp and using seachem root tabs. this weekend im going to go take a trip around the twin cities here n check out some fish stores. i wanna get some more plants. maybe some more corkscrew val, ( which i really really like) some Anubias of some sort an see what else i can find that will grow in my 1.5wpg tank without being destroyed by my BA tetras! just thought id up date if anyone is interested lol prob not tho but thanks! haha

Man. . . I don't know what I'd do if I had plant-eating fish! I'd probably just cry a lot, lol!

Happy shopping, be sure to post pics when you're done!

I love Vals, too, but didn't have much luck with them. They grew and sent out runners but they never really thrived in my soft water/low light. Now I have cryptocoryne spiralis, as it was the closest thing I could find to the look of the vals, but better suited to my tank. Crypts LOVE my low-light tank, and they really took off. . . they're everywhere!

It's pretty frustrating. I've had these fish a while now. I got them from a buddy. I didn't know fishkeeping was popular here in mn. Should be a fun day. I've been think about cryps. We'll see what I can find!
