FAUNA: 9 rummy nose tetras, 2 Aeneas corys, 2 Julii corys, 4 otos, 4 amano shrimp, 1 bamboo shrimp

FLORA: Dwarf Sagittaria, Amazon sword(2 varieties, I think black and melon?), Hygrophyla difformis, Bacopa monnieri, Rotala indica, Nymphaea pubescens(lotus)

2/26/09: added a bunch of rotala indica today, took out the java moss

3/1/09: taking a new approach to trimming today I'm going to begin a more gradual thing where i just do a few stems at a time so rotala doesn't have that "mowed lawn" look.

4/5/09: gave up on gradual trimming and mowed the lawn :D- all well! I also thinned out the wisteria today and got some credit at the LFS for my newest edition to the tank:Hemianthus micranthemoides to be grown epiphitically on the driftwood. also got some seachem potassium to add to my dosing regiment.

4/10: took t-8 fixture and glass lid off the tank. I rigged the t-5 fixture to be about 2 inches over the water surface- looking forward to some emersed growth :)

4/14: added 5 more rummys (9 total now) and a bamboo shrimp
