justin182 The tank has been in a 'rehab' mode after about a month of neglect... Well, I was away and asked my gf to take care of the tank, but I guess my instruction so to speak wasn't that clear maybe! So, some plants died, and a few HOLES to fill...

Oh well, maybe it's time to try a few other plants, let me know if you wanna help fill the holes in my tank!

Newman awesome journal. have you thought about sloping the substrate more? idk exactly which areas, but back when the DW was there, the back right area woulda looked real nice with a big slope.

AquaStudent Wow great 10 gallon. This is why I like these journal threads too. It shows the development. You tried different things and found what worked and what didn't work. Now, with all the knowledge you have, you have a fantastic looking planted tank.

I'm not a big fan of guppies but the black ones and the albino ones are pretty cool. That is very lucky that you were able to get albino ones expectantly.

Just curious, where are you from in the Cleveland area? I am currently in Columbus for school, but I am from the Cleveland area. Depending on your location, I likely have some LFS reccomendations.
Thanks. RMS is pretty much the only store I visit here~!!

justin182 So after a long break, it's time to update again...

I switched out the substrate with a bag of Eco-Complete 3 days ago. It was late, so I left the plants in a bucket, just put all the fish and the single Amano shrimp back into the tank and went to sleep. Woke up the next day and couldn't find the Amano shrimp anywhere. I thought that the Amano might have just climbed out of the tank out of stress... But the weird thing is that I couldn't find it or its carcass anywhere on the floor (a ninja shrimp dying somewhere ) So, I just put the plants in without more looking. Woke up today and you know what, the shrimp appeared inside the tank again... A true ninja~!!

Oh by the way, I added a few new plants. Really happy to see HC in my tank again.







Some grains of the Eco Complete are just HUGE, the biggest one I saw is like 1 inch long... I broke up that piece with a HAMMER You can clearly see that the smallest grains are different from the other bigger ones. They are deep black, while the bigger ones are greyish black. But overall, it looks good, and I'm sure it will grow plants better than the inert gravels




Ninja Amano (pictures taken before I switched out the substrate),


What you staring at ,

sewingalot Stunning! I can't wait to get my plants now that I am looking at your tank. What kind of guppies are those? I love red colored fish!
