I apologize for the lack of updates. I finally got around to it today.

All of the plants are doing great. Particularly the Hypoestes. It is the fastest growing thing in there I trim it about once every 1-2 weeks. The crypts are starting to get taller and punch out more leaves. The annubias and java fern wendilov on the rafts are starting to act more alive. The dwarf sag & val nana underwater are shooting out runners like crazy (hooray flourish root tab!).

On July 15th, I set out to one of my favorite LFS and brought home 3 cherry barbs, (2 male, 1 female) and 2 otos. I acclimated them for 45 minutes and released them. After a week, all 5 fish were still doing great so I went to another LFS and got 3 more cherry barbs, all female.

So as of right now there are 6 cherry barbs, 2 male, 4 female and I'm looking to add 3 more (2 female, 1 male) and I probably will add another species like Gold metalic barbs.

Anyways, all I have are poor quality iphone pictures. My family does not possess a high quality camera. Maybe Santa Mom will fix that...
