For some reason the rcs didnt seem to like the cucumber too much, the pleco on the other hand tore it apart!

First time ive seen them group up and eat so I was excited, usually only see 1 or 2 at a time eating...

The tanks look amazing. I just recently set up a 20 and I'm trying to get ideas on what to put in it. I love the way your 10 looks.

Thanks im still very new to this, trying my hardest not to rescape already, it can be addicting.. Do you have a journal going for your tank? I would suggest a couple of different small schools of fish, way more attractive to the eye than a couple big fish just bobbin around.



I will get tank update pics because the 10g has a black background and the 50g has the cardinal tetras now

I actually do have a journal started for my tank. I must warn you, the tank is empty. My dad has 2 55's that are lightly planted, but I decided to start fresh and use new everything. No recycling from the old tanks. And I would be interesred in your suggestion for schools of fish.

Shrimp tank
pH 7.8
Ammonia 0
Nitrate 0
Nitrite 0

Seems like i need pH down for both tanks... Everyone seems to be fine though...



My java fern is started to curl (melt??) a little, dunno exactly whats causing it... I dose ferts twice a week, should i get some liquid co2? Or are my (2) 10watt cfls not enough

-edit-
As a mod on another forum it baffles me how this has 900+ views and maybe 10 posts that arent mine... You fish people arent very talkative

Officially doing these updates for myself, not worried about starting conversations with people anymore since it doesnt seem to be working out here...

Spotted a little brown algae on my rock tunnel in the 50gal... Didnt know u could have algae from too low of light. Lol. Cant win huh, too much or too little. I do also feed heavy in that area, maybe i should spread it out a little. Not worried about it yet but keeping an eye out.

Other news: i got 30+ rcs for the tank yeaterday,some are realllly small babies so i took the guppy fry out of the 10g.

So, i dumped the pregnant molly back into the 50 (from breeder net) and placed the guppy fry in there...

Now if the molly gives birth and i can catch any of em they will go with the guppy fry.

Also added 2 plants to 10g (forget one, other is elodea) and added a fake plant to the 50g

Pics whenever not like anyones rushing to see em :/
