Sold my clown loaches and tiger barbs and I now have 20 Harlequin Rasboras
You can barely see them in this pic as they're still pretty small. About 0.5-0.7" lol
The school is smaller than I imagined so I might up it to 30.

i think this would look nicer with a back background.
i'm impressed with the growth.

jkan0228 02-12-2011 07:28 PM

Due to the filtering system, theres nothing I can do about it :(

jkan0228 02-20-2011 05:13 PM

Two days away from my birthday! XD
Added 5 smaller amanos, I hope that my rainbow sharks leave them alone :D. Funny story about the Amanos, the sales clerk at The Wet Spot counted the 5 as only 1 so I almost got 5 amanos for 1.95$! lol I say almost because my dad made me go back and tell the truth :P
As you can see, I've completely hacked back the left side.I pulled up all the plants and replanted them more loosely apart. I then plunged in 30 root tabs on the left side alone :D
Here are the two bunches:
Here are the two bunches that I didn't replant

I just read your journal. I hope that you had a very good birthday. Happy Belated Wishes! Your tank is very pretty. :) That is some amazing growth in such a short period of time.

jkan0228 04-02-2011 09:02 PM

Thanks :)
Just added a few plants:
Blyxa Japonica:
Not sure about the clump on the left.... Suggestions?
Sunset Hygro on the left and 3 puny stems Rotala sp. 'butterfly' on the right


jkan0228 04-10-2011 03:31 AM

Just did a huge trim

jkan0228 04-30-2011 05:48 PM

I did a major trim of the right side of the tank because the stems of the P. Erectus and L. Repens weren't looking so good.
So thats that...
PS. The osmocote root tabs are really starting to its effect on the plants.. especially the Amazon.. I get about a leaf that grows to the surface every 4-5 days....
Also have some Staurogyne Repens coming in on Monday or Tuesday in which I will be replacing my HC carpet with it...
