Yeah I don't really have any complaints about the new gravel. Absolutely no cloud when I filled it, easy to plant in.

FTS



Right




Tree




Left



Other stuff:
Ludwigia hybrid and big red ludwigia
*forget name* trimmed these down too form two bushy red spots behind the driftwood. Trimmed the few hybrid stems I had too about 15~20 short stems.


Flame moss pearlin hardcore
it's been doing this since lights on this morning


Downoi


Glosso


_________________________________________

All the pics are kind of crummy wanted to get some quick pictures up too keep this journal updated. Everything was trimmed really short so I can start too form plant bushes for when they are grown in. People who followed my old journal, this is what I do/did with the Rotala rotundifolia and why it was so thick. I want tight "bushes" with the plants when things grow in.

I'm pretty sure I want too get my HM too carpet around/in the driftwood too provide some contrast too the wood/glosso and hopefully get it too bush up a little bit also.

I will have a plant list sometime soon, probably tomorrow.

______________________________________________

I still have quite a few CRS in the old 20g, probably 7-10 if I counted right which is pretty shocking, and I mean 7-10 adults. I have atleast 2-3 berried ones who look really close to popping. I also saw 2 tiny CRS shrimplets (they were right up in front I didn't really look through the tank I was grabbing the glosso from the other room and noticed them when I did a quick glance), not sure if these were from the last batch or if these are new ones coming out but i'm really excited too see they are turning things around. They seem to be digging the tank in there I threw all the Wisteria, driftwood with anubias that I won from the auction, java fern, some moss from chad and other odds and ends in the tank for them and they are digging it.

And last update the rainbowfish fry are starting to grow up! They love live baby brine shrimp, kate has been hatching them for them. I also managed too get a few cherry shrimp in this tank somehow lol.

Here's some pics of the fry:

Nice man. Gonna look great all filled in.

Does this mean you are going to be spending time on the rack now?

What tank did you move the shrimp to?

Everything looks great, Dude! I love it. It will look fantastic once it grows in! Glad the shrimp population seems like it might make a come back! I've got my fingers crossed for you!

Thanks!

A little bit more time on the rack lol.

They are still in the same tank as they were in... I bought a new 20g tank, took down the 29g (which are you still buying? let me know), and put the 20g in place of the 29g on the rack.

Do you really love it, or are you being nice? lol! Thanks, I am not going to lie I was really down about the whole shrimp thing, it was a nice site today when I was planting some things in there realizing I still had close too a dozen and no dead ones lately (that I have seen anyways). I'm keeping my fingers crossed too that they will keep it up! Thank Zach!

Oh yeah. I am for sure gonna buy it. I get money on the 10th, so I will shoot you a pm then and probably pick it up that day. Can't do anything till then though. I also need to find another 10 gallon tank. I need a moss farm tank.

I meant it, bro! I think it looks really good. I'm super excited to see it grow in. The driftwood tree is fantastic! Great, I'm glad they are doing better!

My two OEBT mommas are still berried... hopefully they hold full term, and I have a good success rate with the babies! If all goes well maybe in a few months I can hook you up with some!
