Fertilization 12/22/12 started dosing Flourish Excel & AquaFertz Concentrate 3-4 months ago 10/22/11 putting Flourish every Friday. Will start to put Flourish excel to help with the brown algae.
Plants 12/22/12 Dwarf Baby Tears completely died off. It was too late when i realized I wasnt putting enough macro fertz. Dwarf Hairgrass spread on the right and I added Lilaeopsis Brasiliensis on the left of the tank, waiting for it to spread. Also just added Ludwiga arcuate in the middle rear. 10/22/11 Dwarf Hairgrass (Elocharis acicularis), Dwarf Baby Tears, Bacopa (Bacopa Caroliniana) i think. correct me if I'm wrong.)
Inhabitants 12/22/12 All Ghost Shrimps & neon tetras died after a year. RCS multiplied like crazy. 80-100 probably. Placed my male black molly because he was getting the female black mollies pregnant on the other tank. 10/22/11 5 Neon Tetra (Paracheirodon innesi), 2 Otocinclus (Otocinclus vittatus), 30 +/- Red Cherry Shrimp ( Neocaridina denticulata sinensis), 3 Ghost Shrimp (Palaemonetes spp.)

Thanks much! Once the Dwarf Baby Tears carpet the whole tank, I want to take a better picture!
