Boom, driftwood. Not sure what kind of driftwood mind you, but I like it and its nice. It sticks out a bit though, but that's fine.
And a new plant addition....a very, small addition :P In time, a lot of time, it should spread throughout the wood. This is Fissidens splachnobryoides, bought it from h4n, he always does well by me. From my undersanding, its basically the smallest fissidens possible....seemed like a perfect idea for a 5.5 gallon.
The Fire Reds are doing fine. I'm actually getting more of them tomorrow, which will be sweet because I only have 3 females (eye roll).
As far as other updates....I got a PPS Pro fert package coming in from nilcog tomorrow as well, meaning this tank will have a regular fertilizer schedule from now on. Still have to work on the DIY co2 though, I keep forgetting. Then again, the floaters lower the light intensity. Speaking of floaters, my RRF is now flowering, and doing really well in this tank
.....as is the duckweed but whatever. The frogbit is doing nicely as well. I might, maybe, throw in some dwarf water lettuce once I remove most of the duckweed, but then again doing that means less RRF, and I really like this RRF.
I removed some plants as well. Currently, aside from the fissidens, the only plants in here are DJG Belem (which is spreading slowly but surely), the Lysimachia nummularia ‘Gold’, which is slowly being propegated out, Rotala wallichi, and Rotala colorata. Everything will be looking better once I have ferts though.
Thinking still about fish I want to add. Green neons seem like a neat idea, as well as any other nano schooling fish that exists (except ember tetras since those are rocking it in my 10). Still thinking about doing a badis or dario species but, those are expensive, hard to come by, and a little difficult so I might not bother.
I do want to get 3 nerite snails of some kind though, and maybe an amano shrimp or two, just to be my algae eating team.
