**Update**

Added 2 otos and a manzanita branch with some baby java ferns tied to it. The moss wall is filling out nicely. Sorry for the cloudy water, I just got done sloping the substrate.

Ok the divider thing didn't work out so well...Tigers ended up on CRS side and some CRS are on the tiger's side. So now I set up an 8g evolve for the Super tigers, and this tank will become strictly a CRS/CBS tank. The tigers are still in this tank, but Im not worried about them breeding with the CRS....I think the pH is a little too acidic for them at 6.4. But if it happens it happens. The 8g is almost done cycling probably only one more week before the tigers go to there new home.

Here is an updated picture:
