Where in Toronto did you buy the Boraras urophthalmoides? I want some for my ADA 60P, they look great!

Sound good, they look awesome. I bet once you get that sexy Fluval 84G, the Edge is going to take a back seat. That kind of what happen to my 6 gallon, the 60P became my main focus. Things actually started to grow better when I miss a few days of dosing, weird.

That already kind of happened! haha... the Edge still does get some love.. i did a a bit of a minor re-scape today

Check out my Osaka Forest tank log

I'm horrible at remebering to dose the tanks in the mornings... so the next projected is going to be an automated dosing system

Default 6g to 12g edge talk log

Today I added another female pfr shrimp and 4 Dario Dario's (Red Indian scarlet badis). They are micro predators and very curious. I love to watch them explore.

I think the tank is probably a little overstocked now and may have to move some fish out later (tons of fish but all super tiny) they seem to be happy for now

I like these very much and have a question. When you first got them were they kind of washed out and did their real color come in quickly or over a period of time.
Also what type parameters are you keeping them in.
I have seen some here locally but they dont seem to have the intense color yours do. Also they are a bit shy right.

i had a bit of a mix origionaly but i did get fire reds to begin with.. so they have stayed pretty true and full read. i get the odd light red.. Today i moved out the dario darios since i have to berried shrimp in the tank and i feel the colony needs to up its numbers. I'm sure the CPDs will pick off a few but the avid hunters are relocated for now

And i took out my mini tree and put in areal tree stump... getting it in the tank was interesting to say the least

I have absolutely no idea how you got that driftwood in there that's impressive! I struggled getting a piece that's a third of that size in my edge It's a great looking tank!

I noticed you removed the cabomba... I've got cabomba in my 12g edge and it's ALWAYS getting pulled into the middle of the tank right under the HOB return flow. Did the same happen with yours? I would move the HOB but options are limited with the edge lol

Keep up the good work... This is a great thread!
