I thought I'd give you guys an update... I lost all the rosboras =/ I took them out of the main tank and put them in the hospital tank which I was medicating. They would look fine, then suddenly very lethargic and unable to stay upright before dying within an hour.
I ordered some rainbows and quarantined them for (not as long as a should have but - all was ok and I dosed with some preventative medications anyways.) They were in a QT for 10 days or so. But they seemed healthy and too cramped in the QT so I put them in the main tank... Impatient. Idk. They are healthy and that's all that matters to me, but I deserve the reprimand for doing it. Regardless, the next order of fish I make will go through 1 month of QT as there would be too much of a risk with so many fish already in the main tank
I was also adding plants to the main tank through their QT so the tank looks really different from the last picture. I also have another order of plants coming next week with some more of the Native Val I love, some hopefully ground covering Hansen's Nardoo for the left corner and some Copper Leaf bunched which I forget the scientific name of.
For comparative purposes, here is a photo of the tank taken today. The tank is a little murky as one piece of driftwood seems to be still leeching tannins into the water (i think...) anyway, water change scheduled for today (:
