|sp33drhno||The carpet is Lilaeopsis mauritiana, aka narrow leaf micro sword.|

beautiful school. thumbs up for rasboras! =)
It will look even prettier once the carpet grows in. Is it microsword?

New camera equals a bunch of photos
Since the last update all but one peppered cory died from an unknown cause. So I replaced them with panda corys. Also my plan for a wall of vallisneria nana hasn't panned out. Vals used to grow like weeds in my tanks, but for some reason I can no longer keep them in any tank.
The new plan is cover the back of the tank with Limnophila repens 'mini'. I've been lazy and haven't been culling the floating plants regularly. So the Lilaeopsis mauritiana still isn't filling in.
I recently got a new camera, so I've been taking a lot of photos while trying to figure out all the features. These were taken right after a water change.

This tank is currently recovering from two months of neglect. I got distracted by my other hobbies and didn't really do any trimming, only water changes. So the Lilaeopsis mauritiana started dying back. I'm thinking about removing all the frogbit and most of the pennywort to get more light in the tank.
The rasboras are constantly flaring at each other. They seem to act the most natural of all the fish I own. The angels, tetra, killies, etc. in my other tanks just swim to the front and beg for food when they see me.

the water is 78 degrees, and i change around 40% every week or week and a half. just did a water change today, but no trimming. it's really becoming a jungle in there.
here's some half decent pictures of the male gourami and corydoras. over the past week i lost a rasbora and a female gourami. the male is quite aggressive, but things seem to be settling down now. i have a 20 long ready for the other two females. just in case.

may i know the temperature of your tank and how many time you have water change in a week or month and how much it is?

|sp33drhno||thanks for the comments fauxjargon. this is the first tank where i did some planning on the aquascape. most of the time i just throw stuff in wherever, and let them grow as they please. the tank has become a bit unkempt as it's been a while since trimmed. i also added more female gourami last week, and within a few hours, one had paired and spawned with the male.|

Awesome tank! To me your aquascape is the best of the recent developments in the hobby (carpet plants, small fish) and extremely old aspects of the hobby (plants growing naturally like your pennywort).
I've been reading old fish books and magazines (mostly pre-ww2, but some of it goes back to pre-ww1 and even the late 19th century) and generally they had some nice aquariums back then, despite the lack of electricity to run them - however, they were much more like miniature ponds than what we would think of as a planted tank - and that's what the floating pennywort reminds me of.
