Looks like it's going well... Not much algae in there which is good.

Looks good MacTech. I was going to say plant heavier, but I noticed in a later pic that it was. How do the puffers do with larger size shrimp? Was suprised to see a ghost shrimp up in there. Are you just using that as a feeder?

that was the original idea, but the DP's just ignore the shrimp, heck, the shrimp are brave enough to steal the puffers food *while they're eating it*

so as it stands now, the ghosts are simply scavengers (and blackworm theives )

i'd like to try cherry or amano shrimp as scavengers/algae control, but the LFS only has amanos and they want $10 per shrimp....

Thumbs up

The plant you describe as sunset hygro looks like Alternanthera reineckii (Red Temple) to me.

Still, nice tank

Did you mention the size of the tank? Can't find it...

Anyway, tank's looking great.
I especially like the chain swords, I think I might see if I can find some for my tank.
Love the puffers too, keep the updates coming.
