Holy Fish Batman! By that I mean, I finally added some more fish to this tank! I just got home from the LFS with 7 nice looking little julii corys. They are floating right now. I also grabbed a couple mystery snails. I'm pretty excited about these corys, I've been wanting to add some for a while I just haven't seen any good looking fish.
I also hit petsmart while I was on that side of town and picked up a package of Staurogyne repens. I dug through the packages and picked the best looking pack. They obviously don't rotate stock as they get them in, the ones in the back had some impressive growth but also a good amount of dead leaves. I chose a package from the middle, one showing nice growth but had not been there long enough to start experiencing melting.
I would love some input on location for the S. repens! The available spots are either in front of the driftwood, where I originally planted some. OR on the left hand side of the tank where the Blyxa japonica has been. I've been really struggling to keep the Blyxa planted in my flourite/gravel mixture substrate. It seems to be growing ok, but I'm replanting a large portion of it DAILY! I'm tempted to pull the Blyxa and move it all to my 20L, where is stays in the substrate with no probs. Thoughts?
I've currently got a 10000K and Actinic bulb running on this tank after the lighting fiasco I've had over the last week. I am waiting for a check in the next few days and will then be ordering new bulbs for all of my lights.
