I cannot wait to get it in the tank. I have not been out of the hobby, just doing my main focus on my 40b rainbow tank. now that its growing well, its time to get this one back in shape. and bring it down to a low light tank so I do not have to do a ton of work on it each week. The 40b takes up a ton of time already, so its a goal lol
Update? Wondering how that wood is gonna look heh heh.
Tank is up and running and has been for a while. My main focus has been on my 40b. The wood looked great for a while.... There is now a pretty good size BBA outbreak I am combating. Once that is taken care of, I will post some pics.
Here is one taken about 10 min. ago. I like this tank compared to my 40b because of its shadows. The tank is much darker and full of dark green and brown plants. the fish however are stand out colorful. A the moment I have (2)peacock gudgeons in there, one male and a female. They have GREAT personalities. The girl is very very curious of everything going on outside the tank. She follows you around at the front of the glass and stares at you when your not near it. My male is a shy grouch. he pops his head out from time to time, and he likes to attempt a chase on the CPD's. (looses EVERY time lol)
Well.... the scape has been less than underwhelming lol. The shadows are too deep, the fish like to hide around in the wood more than they are out. So, I plan on rescaping in the next couple weeks with a totally different scape. Stay tuned!
Its been a week since the rescape, things are growing well. I have been working at getting some pogostemon helferi to transfer to submerged state (front left side of the tank) and I transferred a few stems from my 40b, along with a stem of staurogyn repens (sp?) I transferred one of my E.Franz prinz swords from my 40b as well. I added some cyprus helferi to the tank as well, hopefully I can keep the length under control or I will go ahead and pull it out and replace with with another grassy plant. There are three caves I produced in the tank for my Peacock Gudeons and well.. they each took possession of one of them within a few min. of transferring them back to the tank. So Grouchy and happy have a home.
