small update:
I picked up a guppy today, just to make sure the tank was fully cycled and everything.
He'll go into my 10 gallon after he's finished in this tank. With in 5 minutes of adding him to the tank he, he was swimming by the filter and jumped into the intake but the water pushed him back out, I have to filter off now. I think it creates to much flow so I will try to fix that later.
I also got some new plants the other day too.
Well thats all for now. I'll try and get some pics up later.

Like I promised, some photos

This was the best picture I got of him, but he paces the right side of the tank a lot. Which makes it hard to get a photo


FTS


and a sad attempt at being artistic

Not much of an update.
Moved a guppy from my 10 so now I've got 2 guppies and a lot of snails.
Added some water lettuce.
Will be getting some cherries thursday or friday so I'll update again soon.

Wow, its been awhile.
So somewhere along the line I took out the moss wall.
It wasn't growing thru the mesh and just started to rot.
I also got some cherries.
No shrimplets yet, but I have had a couple that were berried, and sommore saddled.

The Cambodia and Waterlettuce started dying off.
But everything else is doing fine.

Now for some pics







This is how bad my camera is:

Thats a cherry shrimp.
What makes it even more pathetic is that my cell phone can take better pics

My 5 next to my 20

hehe, soon but it's such a chore getting out the camera, and all the cords. I'll try to have an update by the weekend.

Here are some pics I took today. I brought the moss wall back. The shrimp seem to love all the moss but I can only count 10, even when I feed them.






*Bonus pic of my Bamboo shrimp*

Sorry for the glares

Today I picked up some Badis Badis. They are extreamly pretty and seem to be enjoying the tank. They are about 1/2 an inch, about the size of my adult cherry shrimp.
I can't make any promises about pictures, but I'll see what I can do.
