My bristlenose ancistrus did the exact same thing to my swords, in spite of being fed veg. wafers, cukes, and zucchini. Loved the little dude, but had to give him up.

Yep. That's frogbit. Some of ours seem to grow roots at the rate of a couple of inches a day while others are slower. I pinch back roots to a depth of an inch or so all the time, and the plants...

Yep. Cories are a blast to keep and watch. I agree that the dwarf or dainty cories (corydoras habrosus) are among the most entertaining. Zipping around constantly! Tons of personality for a tiny...

Corydoras habrosus are active, cute, and low bio-load. Our local petco (in SE North Carolina) regularly sells them for a buck. I'd recommend you get a half-dozen or so if you can find them.

I agree. Look for the black spot. It's really easy to see. A few of my females have great coloration that rivals even the showiest of my males.
