4 sets (it says 10 plants per) of Vallisneria, Corkscrew
then a generic 12 plant assortment. I'm putting those in tomorrow afternoon when they arrive. Should compliment the other amazon swords and grass nicely.
However, one of the fish stores was able to order the black ruby barbs for me, they initially said it would take 2 or 3 weeks to get them in if they could get them at all. So I called today, and they said they will be in tomorrow. So my question is, can I flip the stocking order and put the BRBs in first, then add the chinese barbs since they keep the chinese barbs in stock normally?
and a side note, I haven't put any plants or anything into this tank in a few weeks now, and today I noticed a snail, it's steady eating algae! Wonder where he came from and how long he's been hiding in there!
No problem with the barb order. The main issue was putting the Tigers in last so the tank has other occupants before they appear.
Snails hitch rides on plants, wood, even in water in the fish bag [though this water should never go into your tank, but it shows how they can slip in un-noticed].
