Third and hopefully final renovation

My 28 gallon has had an outstanding love/hate relationship with me. While it houses very prolific corydoras and other healthy fish, plants have been...finicky. I have recently changed substrate. A difficult process that needs to be done quickly, in efforts to salvage as much of the existing beneficial bacteria as you can. My tank is mini-cycling right now, but the fish seem again at ease. Hopefully time will fill the tank in the way I desire, but here it is...








Twenty-Eight:
1 Otos, 6 Guyana Leaf Fish, 2 Malayan Leaf Fish, 1 Orange Head Tapajos, 4 Bronze Cories, 3 Peppered Cories, 2 Panda Cories, 1 Skunk Cory

Seventy-Five:
3 Thread-finned Acara, 1 Jurupari, 1 Spiny Eel, 1 Bristlenose Pleco, 1 Festivum, 1 Spotted Raphael

It looks great!!

And it's nice to "see" you again. :)

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I agree with everyone else, the tank looks great. I LOVE the cory picture. Good to see you back, we've missed you. Glad the tank is coming along so nicely.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

I think it's great that you've managed to achieve such a natural look. Are those tall Java Ferns I see at the top left of your aquarium?

Looks like Java Fern 'Windelov' or 'Trident'.

Nice tank.
