I like the overall progress of your tank. Everything seems to be growing well and the fish look great.

This looks like an awesome start! Your fish look happy. Please let us know how that DHG does. I have seen it at Petsmart and may try it myself.

I think that moss on your driftwood is actually Subwassertang. I'm not 100% sure though. Take it out and squeeze it gently, if it feels crunchy kind of like plastic Easter basket bedding it is Subwassertang.

Thanks Zach! It is certainly Subwassertang then! The DHG is starting to spread. I will let you know how it grows!

Looking good man. Just my opinion, BUT I've had issues with the Serpae tetras being bullies. If you aren't having any problems now, then you should be fine. That DHG is also spreading very well.

temporary tanks for the time being...

I took all five of my Serpae Tetras back to Petco today. I felt they were too nippy for my Cardinal Tetras. I also picked up 8 Cardinals to take my school up to 12! They will come out of QT, next week. I can't wait to see a them school!

Ha!

Ha! Alliper I just noticed your comment! I thought they were nippy bullies(really good looking) nippy bullies. So back they went. I think they tank will be better without them. I might consider doing a big school (25-30) with Kribs in my 55 Gal when I set it up.

Photo Update

Hi All,
I took some pictures tonight and thought I would add them to the journal. Hope you enjoy!

Main 1/5/13














Is this normal? Does Java Fern usually root directly from its leaves?

I also have a 5.5 Gallon Quarantine tank set up below the main tank. I didn't photograph it from the start so no journal for it. I plan on keeping it up and running with a trio of Cories and lots of clippings. This way I have a place to medicate if necessary and never have to introduce any sick fish to the main tank. I am also trying out CFL's (6000k cool white from HD{3 pack for $9) in a clamp light for growth. Let me know what you think!
QT Main
