Re: 55 gal newb planted tank with plant Q's

I hate to be"that guy", but I don't think the clown loaches are.a good idea. With the livestock you have with it, you have a pretty heavy bioload. They will also uproot your plants constantly.

i inherited the clowns and my mom is waiting to move some pond fish out for the winter and will be inheriting them back they are a pain, but don't dig my plants near as bad as my headstander and dojo loach who goes through the sand.
Rescaped the right side of my tank today and will do the middle in a few weeks and the left side a few weeks after that. I don't want to cause any crazy spikes in my water while all my plants\fish\shrimp are happy and healthy. ps. though my frogwort came in today and had duckweed on it...duckweed is the devil! tried washing most of it off and still got it in my tank. ugh
Wish I could get a better shot of it, but the large rock is up on a hill....
