This is my second journal. As with my 12 gallon long
, I started this journal late. This scape is only about a week or so old though, so it should be pretty well documented.. just missing some of the set-up pictures that I wish I had taken.
I'll be sure to update this with new pictures about once a week or so. Thanks for looking!!

This is right after I filled it up for the first time. The Aqua Soil, turned my scape to mud!! Hahah.
.. and after some cleaning up and rescaping, here's how it currently looks:
Water level is above the tank sides
This wood stump is from my previous tank, so it has a head start with some mosses, and the Süßwassertang is already well established.
And here are the tank inhabitants:
German Blue Ram, "Rammstein" :p
These lil guys are super cute. I put a piece of food in the tweezers, and they chase it around the tank. Amazing personality for such a small fish. It's like you're playing with a dog! They look a lot like a micro Arrowana to me.
My Scarlet Badis: He could be my favorite fish. Adorable.
Another one of my Blue Rams:
I had this plant, (Eriocaulin Sp. "Australia" Blood Red) but it melted. I think it needs RO.. boo.
So, that's about it for now. Thanks so much for looking! Please subscribe, or check back often, like I said, I'll be updating this every week or so.
