Hey from Montreal!
I was referred here by someone, but haven't a clue what his username is.
I'm on my first tank, after considering it for a long time, and finally being talked into it by my brother in law, when he and my sister were over during the holidays. I'm 24 hours into having actual fish in the tank that I picked up in the waning days of 2013. I got lucky and managed a fishless cycle in a little less than 4 weeks. Yesterday I went out for a visit, and left there with a fistful of plants, a baggie of shrimp, fish and various other odd and ends. It was practically a full on raid.
I'm also something of a refugee from another forum (I won't name it), that seems packed full of people who can't seem to google the most basic information. I'm all for helping out the newbies (hell, I am one!) but hopefully this place has a slightly smarter breed of folks!
Right now, my tank has got
9 cherry shrimp (I think - a few escaped the breeder box into the main tank and I haven't seen the 10th that was there yesterday)
8 or so Endlers of various ages including at least one pregnant female
A dozen Cardinal Tetras (paid for 10, got a few extras, woo!)
Half a dozen narrow leaf java fern
A bunch of java moss tied across a flat rock
A few bits of windelov
A slowly recovering piece of valisneria (it wasn't at all happy with my original LED)
A bunch of other plants that I've NO idea what they're called.
Anyone know what that light green plant is in the close-up?
