Ugh. Ended up losing this tank during the move. I am super-upset about it!
Now that I've arrived in my new city (need to update my location information), I'm going to pick up a new tank for the critters.

Woah, it's been a while since I've updated. Everything is going pretty swell with the tank but I'm thinking about making some changes.
Am re-scaping the 12gal long and am toying with moving the Corydoras habrosus in this tank over to the 12. Not sure what that means for this tank but I feel another re-scaping shaping up.
Maybe something with nice rocks or huge chunks of driftwood.

In the interim, here's one of the young Corydoras habrosus growing up:

Woah! It's been a hot minute since I've updated.
Tank is coming along quite well and I've had to remove some Crypts due to excessive growth. Did a monstrous moss trim a month ago and the Christmass Moss is beginning to thicken back up. Will aim for photos during the next water change.
I've got a new rimless bowfront coming from AquaTop soon and I'm toying with using it to replace this tank, though I do still love it. Am just determining whether or not I want to deal with Cories and an open top.

Christmas Moss got way too thick so I removed 99% of it and re-glued some on to the hardscape:
Here are the adult Corydoras habrosus remaining in the tank, all huddled in one area as the tank refilled:
Planning on re-scaping with a ton of Anubias nana 'petite' and maybe some Buces.

Moss needs good flow to flourish.
What's your flow like? What kind of filtration?
|07-01-2013 11:11 PM|
Damn, I wish my moss looked that great. I can't seem to grow it well. The moss in my 3.2g is starting to turn brown after months of green and it has a led light. It's driving me up the wall. I love moss, but it seems to hate me.
Also love the full look.

|Sake||Wow your moss growing skills make me want to steal your tanks <.< I think it looks great overgrown, then again I like the jungle look.|
|07-01-2013 12:25 AM|
A little bit (okay, a lot) overgrown:

|somewhatshocked||Now loosely kicking myself for not realizing I could just mix a bit of baking soda with regular Bee Shrimp Mineral GH+ to bump up the hardness. HEAD - DESK.|
|06-21-2013 01:19 AM|
I think I'm going to start using Shrimp Mineral GH/KH+ with RO/DI water for this tank. I'm hoping the Cories will adjust well. Since I'll only be swapping 10% a couple times per week, it shouldn't be much of an impact on them. Aiming for a KH of 3-4 and a GH of 7-8.
So tired of this dang tap I've been using for the tank. Just unreliable.

|MABJ||Wow lol. Then they definitely eat shrimp fry.|
