week 2.

2 tiny strands of baby tears not the best but they will grow...eventually?

i decided to move the elodea to the back on the right side behind the rock,
i moved the rotala indica to the back and added 2 tiny strands of baby tears which i hope will grow into a nice mid ground plant to add depth.

replanted the microsowrds individually so they can carpet evenly.

sadly i lost a very large very old female cherry shrimp yesterday 1 of 8. but i have 2 shrimps holding eggs so hopefully the circle of life will continue.

So the big question now is.. Fish? something that wont eat the baby cherry shrimp , 4 neon tetras? 4 guppies? 1 or 2 otos? Betta but they eat shrimp...
