Hey Bill, sorry I'm a little slow. Its been a while since I've had a chance to update this thread, but the tank is doing quite well at this point and I'm pretty pleased with its progress. My biggest issue at this point is with the young ladies who are in charge of maintaining the tank. They can't seem to figure out that just dumping water back in during the weekly PWCs and stirring up the substrate to the point of disrupting and floating the plants is a bad thing. This Friday we will be learning out to siphon water back into the tank as well as out of it LOL. There are a few other minor issues, I'm seeing some holes in leaves, which based on my reading is most likely a phosphate issue, and I've still got a few diatoms hanging on. The white fungus on the applewood has all vanished.

FTS;


Little closer;


A close up of the cottonwood log and it's plants;


I'm pretty pleased with the "root mass" area, although as you can see I've got a few plants I need to get tied down.


I added my first fish; half a dozen each of Black Phantom tetras and Red Phantom tetras. The Black Phantoms are fairly large, while the Red Phantom tetras are quite small.

Black Phantoms;




Red Phantoms amongst the "root mass";


Another shot with the Phantoms here and there;


Bill, I think this plant is one that came in one of the bags of mosses you sent my way, any idea what it is?

Excellent - Done! Indeed at this point I'm extremely happy that I didn't go with a soil substrate. What a mess that would be.

On order, but we are waiting on weather to ship. Hopefully they will arrive in the next couple of weeks. Slow and steady wins the race. With all the issues these guys have with unstable tank parameters, I wasn't about to rush in to adding them.
