The rams are amazing, I'm glad the convicts are gone. I have a nice peaceful community tank. I still have some additional plants to migrate in. Just waiting to trim my 29. I've switched to dry fert solutions, and looking into co2 set ups at the moment.

I have a Betta in my tank as well, Rams could care less about him. I'm by no means an expert, but most of what I have read points to consistency of water parameters being more important than exact target numbers.
The blue wasn't working well with the rams. It was fine for the convicts. Not dark enough for them. I picked up some Tahitian moon sand. I'm just looking to dull the blue down. As the fish mix it around, I will add more. This tank had a nice sand bed with lots of bio in the gravel. I removed some swords to make way for the dwarf sag. Add some crypts I propagated from the 29g.
I really want some moss in this tank. My excel dosage kills it every time. The anubias up front might have to go. Its got bba. Until I get pressurized co2, I'm going to stick with stems. I've got some macrandra red growing in the 29, I'm going to add some to the rear. Should make the green pop. We'll see.
Give that Dwarf Sag a few months and it will cover the tank. I think its looking pretty good. I would raise the water level and look for a large piece of driftwood that reaches the surface for some real impact
I'm giving this tank some attention while the 55 is settling in. Added a diy moss column and removed a few plants. (In the 55g now) I'm moving all the hairgrass towards the front. I'm going to attempt to carpet the rear with various height of stargrass starting from the corner going diagonally across. Added some westeria so rico can make a bubble nest. Any thought on what plants to add here. I tried brown crypts but they kept melting. I want to avoid swords.
