the seller called it iron sand because it's heavy, but i don't think it's actually iron. it's just ordinary sand used for buildings here.

i don't know about red flint but if its too light it will be a problem at the planting stage. it won't hold your plant firmly.


and now unto the fish, some are not coloured up yet just added them 2 days ago

this is the real reason i want to keep pseudomugils. lfs here called it Pseudomugil sp red neon. probably a different color strain of Pseudomugil paskai.


Pseudomugil furcatus


Pseudomugil gertrudae, very active, it's hard to take their photos


Pseudomugil signifer, still young not yet showing their true form


not a Pseudomugil but i just can't resist adding them to this tank. beautiful fins.


i need a bottom scavenger for the leftover food


anubias algae cleanup crew



somehow i can't keep shrimps in this tank. they just end up dead within the day or two even after i acclimatized them first for hours. i read before that some cryptocorynes release some kind of chemical that's deadly for shrimps. is this true or something else kill my shrimps. i have red cheries in my other tank without crypts and they're absolutely fine.
