Alright, I am trying to keep with more consistent updates. So here we go.
As I posted yesterday I got ahold of a fish I have been looking for for about a year, which Is AWESOME!!!! They have settled in and are showing more colors than they did yesterday. They are still very young, and rainbows have a tendency to grow slow. They get passed by in LFS when young because they look colorless and not like the name suggests lol. patience though will result in great fish!! My female and male Bosmani (will stay in this tank as long as they can, if they get too large and seem to be unhappy they will go to a friend with a larger tank) man the male is colorful as you can see in the next few pics. This is pretty amazing for a LFS brand bosmani, which usually breed pretty washed out. I just could not pass them by.
As for the plants. Everything is going great. Some plants are showing a lack of potassium so I will be upping the K this week to rectify the situation. The dwarf hairgrass is starting to spread. Everything else is dandy. I need to find myself some fissidens for the wood, and maybe one or two more stem plants for the mid ground.
Anywhoo here are a few more pics.
Nigrans in holding!!! This is two females and a male on the left. I am trying to get better pics, but these dang things wont stop moving!!
Here is the whole group. It looks like it is two males and three females!
Here is the bosmani and my male Herbert. they have been getting along great. the bosmani has a bone to pick with one of my pushy Herbert females though lol. the male Herbert has decided all the girls are his.
