Got sidetracked by projects and other obligations. My tank looked horrible so I trimmed it down. The Staurogyne repens carpet had died out so I bought a bunch and restarted it.
I lost all but two Emperor Tetra to carpet surfing. I also lost a few Cherry Barbs, and a few cardinals. Today, I went and purchased 15 Cardinals, 10 Emperors, 2 Otos, and a few Apisto agassizi Fire Red! looking forward to how this grows out.
I am looking to give away some of the Tiger Nymphaea as they are over running the tank.
