Talking My Fluval Flora's progress post =) *pictures*

I intend to keep track of my Fluval Flora's Progress here in this thread =). Although I am not a newbie at fish keeping (had cichlids for about 6 years) this is my very first planted aquarium ever!

Here is my tank during the fish-less cycle :

During the cycle my background plants melted but the Anubias, Dwarf Hairgrass, Cabomba, and water lettuce flourished. I also got a new piece of driftwood and some Christmas Moss that came with 2 hitchhiking crabs .

I stocked my tank with 4 Guppies (2m, 2f), 3 CPD's or Galaxy Rasboras and 4 Neon Tetras .

Let me know your thoughts! I'm very much liking this hobby =) Except for all the $ spent lol I thought my biggest purchase would be the tank but things sure add up! It's ok students have been proven to be able to survive on cup of noodles!

This is very nice! Those crabs would concern me though. Where'd you get the plant from? They look like Thai micro crabs! Which is very neat as they're one of the full aquatic crabs.

If they're fiddlers, you'd need to change some things up for them to exist properly.

I haven't seen them since the day I brought them in. They immediately burrowed themselves at the base of the plants. Their claws looked about the same size so I'm hoping they were Thai for their sake =\
