20 Long journal!


Hey guys and gals, here's a journal of my 20 long! It currently holds my RCS colony, 4 cardinal tetras, 1 female endler (who I CAN'T catch), and 2-3 Khuli loaches (can't catch them either.) Plants include rotala indica, stargrass, italian val, a marimo moss ball flattened out, dwarf sag, green crypts (not sure of specific name), narrow leaf ludwigia, ludwigia repens, and lastly, wisteria. On the driftwood i have fissidens that is starting to grow. Within the next few weeks, I'll be moving into my basement, and will be completely redoing the tank (Substrate and all.) So stay tuned!

Well the least I can say is it looks good!

I know some of your shrimp/shrimplets are getting eaten, but sometimes you can't help it if you have other fish.

If I was you, I'd consider a big school of micro rasboras and a shoal of ottos.

Those plus Shrimp are my ultimate tank lol. Someday

Thanks, Mark! I've been looking around for otos the past month or so..it's kinda annoying being unable to find them :/ Micro rasboras seem like a cool idea, so maybe they'll be the species i choose haha. Thanks for the feedback

Not a problem. Idk your final stocking plans, but not finding them isn't a problem. I'd just order from Rachel. Support a TPT vendor and you get a guarantee your stuff will come in well.

Well, probably neons, guppies are also shrimplet eaters.

Wouldn't be shocked it the loaches nibbled from time to time.

Dustinsfishtanks on Youtube just posted a video about Khuli loaches...in it he mentioned an easy way to catch them. I've never tried his technique, but it sounds like it might work. You should watch it and give it a shot!

Hey everyone, quick update (no pics, sorry.) I have diy c02 running at the moment, until I get a regulator. Also, I just saw a berried cherry!

She is ready to be berried again after she drops. It's not too uncommon.
