Borikuan Update!!

HC - Taking over, I don't even want to mow it anymore.

Glosso- Gone, replace with a bush of Stargrass, which is also taking over

Tiger barb - Gone , he finally joined his buddies in the Hex.

Red Cherries - Back in! They kinda stunted in the 10 gallon downstairs, so I moved the mommies back in here and now I have berries again.

Borikuan I mowed it once already, need to mow again to promote. Theres an empty space behing the Anubias, the Barb used to hang out over there, but he loves to bury himself in the Stargrass bush now. Thinking of putting a red stem of sorts there for background cover. Any suggestions? I want something that will stay red withouth iron...

dacrax07 Yeah, the HC is looking really nice.

Love puffers tho, they are the "helicopters" of fish! :P
Yep I moved him to my 15g, hes doing well with the hybrids. My lone tiger barb luves here now, he keeps getting bullied in the community tank so he gets his own little space now.

I need to post new pics of this setup. I removed the Glosso to my main 20l and just has expected, the Co2 is making it go sideways now. The HC however is the big surprise, it has propagated into a nice carpet, with no Co2 just Excel. The Anubias is up to 15 leaves now from the 7 it had when I first dropped it in there. Pics to follow...

chunkychun How's the HC doing? did you inject co2? just curious and starting something similar.
I think one dwarf puffer in 2.5 is okay. it looks like you have it planted pretty well. if you feed carefully i'm sure the dp will be fine.
good luck

GMYukonon24s Nice tank

Brian_Cali77 I wouldn't put a dwarf puffer in a tank that small. They're way too intelligent and inquisitive to be confined to 2.5 gallons. The puff would die of boredom. Plus they have a large bioload. Stick to some micro fish or get a scarlet badis (Dario Dario).

stevenjohn21 Wow , ive never seen Glosso so tall before ! I kind of like it :-)
As soon as the C02 is introduced the glosso will stay lower.
