My Rainforest Creek - Fluval 12g


Just thought I'd give you an update as to how my tank came along.

This is what it is looking like as of tonight. Since I planted it, it has had gone through a few tweaks and I am still not happy with it. I feel I need a carpet plant and the plant that is on the right side of the tank (looks a bit cabomba-ish) was an impulse purchase and a bit out of place I think. Problem is I think it looks really pretty but it just doesn't fit in there.

I had HC in there as well initially that seemed to be doing for a week or so, though I left them in the pot but as soon as I took them out of the pots, cut them up they went downhill from there.

Would love to know what you think and suggestions for improvements will be very very welcome.


Ps, I initially bought 3 shrimps. The golden one didn't make it as my journey from the LFS to the house was a little much for them as it was snowing. I now have a Cherry Shrimp and a Blue Tiger shrimp, both of whom I love. The little red guy was on his side, about to die but came back to life!
