thanks!
I love planting small amounts of it and having it filll in through the course of time.. but i had a nice amount starting out... so in a way, it was pre-carpeted >__< I should feel ashamed of myself

I have loved that Gush orb since I first laid eyes on it. The anubias white is Perfect for it. It might look cool to have something on the opposite side of the tank to give it balance. Like move your drop checker parallel to the orb. Just a thought. This one is super nice!

lol... i was like, i don't what it is. but i know i need one of these :P
i hope to have the anubias white fill the entire glass orb :p maybe in a year..

Thanks for the suggestion! I totally agree and it looks like you'll see one of the two rearranged on my next update!

thanks so much! lol.. although the price was tough, it a plant worth owning.

Day 9 - Anubias Nana 'Snow White' added

so... i've always been wanting a glass pod to grow a little 'bonsai' separately in the tank...

so my buddy, Han (h4n). was able to order me a Gush Crystal Pod.. and of course I needed to add something to it... so, i was able to purchase one of his last Anubias Nana 'Snow White's.. :p

It all arrived today, and as usual, perfect shipping/quality from Mr.Han. (highly suggest his quality products in plants/shrimp food/scaping materials/ etc)

So, hopefully it will do well! right now it has 6 leaves and hoping to have it multiply someday, since i've been told it grows VERY slowly... hehehe
i have it in aquasoil, roots are berried and rhizome is exposed above soil


anyways, my camera isn't the best and for some reason, its a very difficult plant to get the lens to focus on... so heres the best pics i could snap!

Day 7 - update

So, Day 7.

nothing different has been going on.

did a water change, dosed NPK's. and plants love to pearl for me

some exciting things to look for is...

Im getting a glass orb from Han (h4n). :p

he had to ask what i was placing in there... and all i could think of was just a small Trithuria sp (Blood Vomit).. he over course suggested an even rarer plant..

Anubias Nana 'Snow White'.. so ended up supporting his plant room funds, and have this coming in with the orb on monday. ill post a picture when it arrives


anyways, for viewing sake, heres a lil pic i snapped before the timer went off.

Are those the same as a stingray loach? I could be mistaken.
Either way beautiful fish!
Cheers,

Im glad everyone loves my loaches!
I work at a LFS, and I think a bunch of places stopped caring for the difficulty of netting them into a bag.. I've seen a few cases where people stress them out to the point of death..
Hmmm... another common name I hear a lot for the Reticulated Hillstreams are "Butterfly" Loach.

Thanks for the advice.
But from my past experience, with my previous scape (same light/soil/co2/fishes/stones/etc.), everything did really great.
My tanks 'aqua soil' has been done cycling and leaching out its ammonia.
I drained my tank down and netted all the same fish into a bucket with an airstone, while scaping/planting the tank. I had no other choice, but to add them back into the aquarium once I re-flooded it. They all are doing just fine and I feel like, they're enjoying the extra room.

I would have wanted to have the DHG & HC fill in on its own, but I already had enough trimmings, from the previous scape, to just fill it in.

Im excited to see how everything works out.
Keep in touch!

I know! I checked out the AFA store, but the GF limited me to the amount I could purchase lol

Thanks! So much respect for them Lamp-Eyes! I encouraged my boss to get some, and I was able to pick some up at $1.99 each!
