KG's PFT #2...

Well, here goes. My first journal, but my second tank. My first tank was such a mistake that it currently sits empty awaiting my next adventure. Decided to wait on creating a journal until I had something that didn’t look absolutely horrible (tank #1 was hideously ugly).

The theme on this started out as “Big Box Pet Store”, as all the plants and equipment were purchased from Petco or PetSmart. The only things that weren't are the CO2 gear, Cichlid Stones, and a school of C. habrosus. I was also originally going for a slanted slope up in the background plants (from left to right), but as you can see I haven't trimmed the ludwigia this week to keep it that way.

Anyways, current fauna/flora:
Dwarf Hairgrass
Java Fern
Alternanthera Reineckii (is there a common name for this?!)
Needle Leaf Ludwigia
Crypt Wendtii
3x Otocinculus (hoping to replace with Zebras in the future)
10x Corydoras habrosus (love these guys!!!)
Current Pictures (about 2.5 months from start):

Added a couple of cichlid stones. Waffling between a pair of Apistos or a school of Blue-Eyed Forktails as a feature fish.

I absolutely LOVE my C. habrosus. These fish are awesome!
