I left the fish and shrimp in the tank while doing the rescape. I was careful to vacuum the areas where the plants were pulled up to grab all the nastys. I also fanned the substrate at the areas I put the plants to scare any shrimp off. I don't think I squished any. at the end I did a 50% water change, and I will be doing another 50% water change just to make sure I do not have any problems. I did not disturb too much though, most of the plants with the exception of the stems were where I wanted them already.

Awesome, it looks great in the tank. And a benefit was my daughter going absolutely nuts because of the pink in the leaves lol. The other plant you gave me too is a very nice plant. I have it floating just above my Java moss and Anachrais side of the tank.

lol, no you cant. The sunset hydro. is now planted in its location. I cannot wait for the roots to form, and it to start getting taller. I am very happy with the re-scape, it came together better than I could have imagined. I will try to get some pics up, and possibly a video when I get a chance.

It really has not started to grow much yet, I think it is still workin at getting the roots in play. I will post some pics as soon as I get a bit more growth out of it.

I did however add a Crypt. Undulata today! It is a pretty darn nice plant, Got it from of all places Petsmart

Lets see.

(1)dwarf Gourami
(6)dwarf Neon rainbowfish
(7)Zebra Danio's
(3) Threadfin
(6)Glowlight Tetras
(4)Neon Tetras
(5)Celestial Pearl Danios
(4)Amano Shrimp
(3)Tracked Nerite Snails
(300+)Red Cherry Shrimp.


It is a heavy stocking level. I keep an eye on the levels quite often, and things are very stable. There is no aggression between any of the fish with the exception of my Dwarf Gourami deciding that she does not particularly like my male Dwarf neon Rainbow's
She is not bothered by the females, just the males. They are faster than her, so no damage or deaths have occurred. They usually swim into the plants, where she does not go, and she looses interest.

Lol I know, they live in peace, and seem quite happy. The water quality is always on my mind, and it is stable and good
