I change water once a week, about 35%. And yes, I occasionally add root tabs - have tried a few different ones but haven't found anything I prefer yet.

My 20 long. Most of the inhabitants didn't want to pose for the photo.
Had a snail outbreak a few weeks ago. Decided to let a few assassin snails work on the problem. So far it seems to be working. Hoping we'll reach equilibrium at some point and the I can perhaps add another fish to two.

Currently 1 albino and 2 zebra cory cats, 2 guppies , 3 Mickey Mouse Platys, and 5 cherry shrimp (supposedly, I never see more than 2 at a time).

Would like a different color fish or two - currently it's all yellows and orange. Ideas?

Thanks! Yeah, it's a great red plant for low tech tanks, very easy to keep.

I originally started this scape about 5 months ago but recently moved and alot of my needle leaf fern leaves died and it's been a struggle.

I have huge bolbitis rhizomes in there too but I have to cut all the leaves off as they melted from the move. But they already started to grow new leaves now.

Just added the anubias petite a few days ago.

The tank houses green terror pair and that's it.
