There are some in the substrate. The grass stuff next to the castle and some crypts. There are some swords behind the driftwood but they haven't gotten tall enough to be visible yet. There is also some bapoca and whatever that red-ish long plant is as well. I wanted a lot of open gravel for the cory's to dig in. There are 8 cory aneaus in here as well as 3 upside down catfish.

There fortunately hasn't been any fin nipping and I do not think there will be. I have 6 Von Rio Tetras as well, but they do not seem to take any notice of the angelfish.

Did a trim recently and the tank is still doing very well. The driftwood finally got waterlogged enough for me to remove the brick holding it down and the tank looks much larger now. Everything is growing very well. I had a bunch of school work and my girlfriend decided to help the local shelter and foster a dog, now we have three in the house, so the tank went a full 2 weeks without a water change. Usually I do a 25% on Wednesdays and a larger one, not quite 50% on Saturdays. The tank did not show any signs of stress whatsoever.

Here is a video of me feeding the fish.

Here is one of the corys.
