Wow, glad you were able to get the 55g back up and running...everything looks so nice!

Congrats on the new Badis, cool little fish.

Got a few new critters thanks to MsJinkzd! All made it into my tanks safely and pretty much colored up immediately! Will post pics of all the new critters I got (Chili Rasboras, Glowlight rasbora, Cardinals, and a surprise pygmy cory!) tmr as its nightime for the fish and I dont like turning on the light at night and scaring them. Also ordered some Repashy Community plus from her as well and will try out the new food and let everyone know how it is. Im very curious how the fish will take to it and if they will be happy with it because with all the new fish I have feeding all of them frozen food every day is starting to get expensive lol



On a bad note while putting in the new Cardinals I realized the the ones that I had, had developed Ick (of course these are the ones I bought at petsmart when they were on sale...knew I shouldnt have). They are the only fish in the tank so I guess it could have been worse but I did not realize that until after I put in the new fish as this is the tank lowest to the ground and the one I stare at the least....I have raised the tank to ~86 which I know the Cardinals can handle and put in salts so Ill hope for the best.

ps. darn just remembered there are Amanos and Ottos in the tank as well....hope they dont die from the heat

the amanos and otos can take the heat, just make sure you crank up the aeration.

Good news, all the Cardinals are slowly recovering from the ick infection and ive had no loses so far.

Bad news for some unknown reason the sole Badis in the 1.5 gallon died. I have no idea why...he was doing fine the past few days and then I come home from work and find him floating in the tank. Along with that it seems like blyxa does not like high temp or it could have been the salt but almost all of my blyxa have melted. Im fine with it though as the rest of the plants seem to be fine.

Lastly heres a quick vid of my Angels munching! I feed the other fishes separately and the Angles from a cone. They usually take turns feeding from it.

They are Rio Negro Altum Hybrids which are not true Altums but P. scalares is what I was told they were. Got them from a SFBAAPS club member who got them when my club did a group buy on them!

Small update! Finally got around to putting backgrounds onto my tank lol Not sure how I feel about the black background on a few of them though.

Starting to really like this scape, and love how I dont have to do much because its just basically Anubius Nana Petite and Hair Grass. Also love the Glowlight Harlequins in here.
They have really colored up since Ive got them!






I really like how the bubbles make it look like stars at night in this tank!


Not really liking how the plants look in this tank for now but hey they grow really well in it so I wont complain. Also the Chili Rasboras in here have even colored up more then I have expected! They are a lot more red in person.





Some of the Wild BumbleBee shrimp that I got remind me very much of CBS lol



Cool looking snail I found in that tank as well (ended up being my Dwarf Puffers dinner)


The riparium plants are doing great and I just noticed today I got a few new healthy shoots!





Im not sure about the background on this tank, there are no "white" background kits so I just found this while sheet and put it on the back, not so sure if I like it.



Lastly heres a photo of my remaining Blyxa Jungle lol, apparently they dont like high temps (was treating this tank for Ick) Also it looks like all the Cardinals are clear of Ick! Happy to say that I didnt have any loses and this was my first time fighting it.

Heres a vid of the Current LED+ on the 55 gallon. Only have an IPhone to take the video so quality does not do the light fixture justice.
