The LFS didn't have Panda Cories today...well, they had 2, but I want a good 8-10. The owner said that he should have more next week. He also said that they do normally have Bosemanis, but probably won't for another two weeks or so. That actually fits my stocking plans anyways, so no big deal there.
So, no pics of Otos and Cories...but I do have lots of new pictures of Otos and plant growth!
So far everything is looking pretty good I think. I can already tell that I would probably be interested in running a high-tech setup at some point, as I am always impatiently looking for new growth. However, not having to get in the tank very often (its been mostly just removing melted leaves so far) has been nice.
Otos and the left side of the tank (this side gets a lot of downwards flow that they seem to really like.):
New sword leaves. I finally trimmed off all of the remaining leaves that came with the plant. It is looking sparse for now, but seems to be growing back pretty well:
Crypts, moss, and Oto food:
Right side of the tank. The Water Sprite continues to put up new shoots:

New growth continues from the Crypt Crispulata:
Darn you, pond snails!:

Looking down at my moss...is that some Riccia growing in there? It sure looks like it...:
Happy Otos eating:

Well, let me know what you think! I've been talking to myself for a while here
