Tank lights came on this morning and lots of the established wendtii (had it previously but had to move them around a little to incorporate the new crypts) has now melted. The tank looks kind of bare, anyone want to see some embarrassing pictures of it?

On the bright side, I picked up 3 amano shrimp from the LFS today!

Cory eggs! Not sure if these on the glass are fertilized but I have 3 crypt leaves covered in eggs isolated in a breeder box with an airstone underneath the leaves to move water over them.

Thanks! I rescued this little girl from a parking lot when she was 4-5 weeks old. Those bengals look so cool, I've always wanted one but can never find them.

HUGE changes coming for this tank. Moving into a new apartment sometime in June so it won't take place until then but I picked up a 40 breeder and stand this week!

I really wanted the extra depth as my crypts will soon be wall to wall to wall to wall at the rate they're growing/spreading. And for $80 for a brand new tank and stand...now was the time to get them.

Livestock will also be changing. The angels are quickly outgrowing this tank as expected so they will be going into my 40 tall along with all the livebearers. This tank is going to house a nice school of 12-15 dwarf neon rainbows, 4 loaches, 6 cory cats, and amano shrimp.

Opinions and ideas are welcome as always!

Does anyone have any suggestions for EI dosing this tank? Just picked up the basic (Micros and Macros) dry ferts and was wondering what people would suggest for this tank. Would it be wasteful to do daily dosing for a crypt tank given how slow growing they are?
