Those are nice. I do like that Malaysian Driftwood, each piece is different (being natural wood) and it gives a more natural look to a tank compared to the resin fake woods, some of which I also have.

Thanks for the compliment, was really happy how the pieces turned out and all under 40 dollars was pretty cheap!.

The 5 gallon tank now has 2 cherry shrimp to test the waters, 3, but I suspect 1 was pulled into the intake of my filter since he was stuck on it when I turned off the filter this morning.

pulled him out before the tank rotted him.

I'm going to be doing my 1st water change this week and will see how the tank will be doing after.

I was hoping to get an anubias, but i'm not sure how it will look in the tank now.

Yeah, I tried duckweed. I think i'm the only person who cannot keep duckweed -- they get sucked into the filter and began to just die off.
I just bought a 4.5L worth of osmocote plus and began filling 00 gel caps full of them. I'm going to use them as makeshift root tabs tomorrow -- about 5 of them will do.

Water Sprite would be ideal, as it grows large enough especially in this sized tank that it will not be pulled in to the filter.

Ahh nice, I'll look into those too -- I think this tank is going to become my farm until I get my large tank.

New picture -- I did some pruning and moved my crypt to the back of the aquarium or at least to mid ground.
