I was going to donate them to the LFS but he insisted he give me some type of credit. So, he actually traded the kribs for the plants. Thanks for clearing that up, btw. They seem to enjoy each other quite a bit and noticed them burrowing near one of the rocks, is this is a sign of anything or am I being hopeful? I'll try to snap a picture later today of the other krib!

|RWaters||Nice tank. What did you do with all the plants you removed? By the way, the krib pictured is a female, not a male. If you do in fact have a pair and they breed, your neons could be in trouble. Kribs may be one of the smaller cichlids, but their protective instinct is big!|

Nice! I like the new scape a lot, love the contrast between the open, light area, and the overgrown, jungle-like side.

Forgot about this guy, pick up a pair of these! The female is a bit shy and so I have yet to catch a good picture of her but here's the male!

Well, it's been some time and the tank was absolutely taken over with glosso and various stem plants. I decided it wasn't the direction I wanted to go in and tried again. Here's the before
And here's the after. I tried using mostly rooted plants and wanted to create some contrast. Hope you enjoy! (I know I am!)
Just after set up with the inhabitants moving back in.
Here's after 24 hours of darkness and some cleaning.
Thanks in advance for any comments/advice.

May I ask what species of crypts you currently have in there?
Also as a side note, the glosso around the hygro is starting to grow upwards because it is trying to reach the light. My suggestion is to quickly trim those that are acting like that, or else it is going to get REALLY annoying.
Also be sure to thin out the glosso too after a while, as the runners under the top leaves would start to grow upwards and it is a pain since the glosso runners would start to be not on the substrate but hovering above it. So when you do a trim you basically kill everything. Learned that from experience. In severe cases, you even have to pull the plants out to replant it.....not fun at all.
Anyways, good luck!!! Great stem plant growth!!!

|Frank Abagnale||That's looking really nice! I had no idea about derimming a tank until I saw your thread today! Wish I would have known that when I set up my 40 gallon!|
