He's definitely the major domo in the tank and mostly spends the day either seraching for food or chasing the Rams a little. But the nice thing about the heavy planting and the wood is that there's...

I'm going to keep my eyes peeled for some dark rocks. And my angel spent the day in the top corner of the tank so I don't think he likes the new environment.

Yeah, Rex Grigg says ph swings from CO2 injection are normal and do not affect the fish the way a swing caused by an acid or base additive would. I wouldn't worry about it too much.

It would be easy enough to test. Try it, see how you like it, if you don't then a few water changes and it'll be gone.

Your cories will take care of the substrate - a school of 5 or 6 would make a happy family and be fine in a 55. With cories you won't need/want loaches - they'll just be competing for the same food...

I'm hoping to start a Eclipse 12g test tank this weekend using dwarf sag as the carpet. 13w over 12g with no CO2 - we'll see how it does. I'll probably post a thread on it when I get started.

What's making the ph drop?

So I go away for a week and have someone feed my fish while I'm gone. When I left, the water ph was right around 7. I come back and it's a 6.

Fish seem happy, and the only thing that's...

If I were wagering, I'd bet the yoyo's will eventually eat the snails - it's one of their favorite foods. If you've got young loaches and grown snails, it may take awhile for the loaches to get big...

The three loaches might be ambitious - they get up to 4" or so.

Neons and guppies like different water conditions, too. At first glance it seems like a crowded tank for a 10g.
