I agree about the tweezers. I remove any leaves from the bottom of the stem and then stick it in with tweezers, then let go and let the tweezers un-clamp on their own before you start pulling up....

I really like the hardscape. Do you have Co2? I would definitely do a carpet and maybe something red to bring out the tones in the driftwood

Drip acclimate them. For six hours. It will greatly reduce the risk of them dying. You're welcome.

The anal fin doesn't look like waste at all IMO. On the more dominant males it even takes on a red sheen. I love when I get to watch my head males flaring.

Keeping Downoi with Shrimp?

I want to get some Downoi but it says it needs a lot of iron fertilization? Does it need so much that the iron levels will kill my cherries?
