Gordon's 33 gallon long

This is the second journal I'm creating.

One of my main tanks is a 33 gallon long aquarium. I have next to nothing regarding a scape, its a jungle more then anything right now with misc. plants strewn about from tearing down 8 tanks I was running in the spring.

Flora:
Anubias Nana Petite
Anubias Nana Broad Leaf
Anubias Nana Narrow Leaf
Anubias Barteri
Anubias Lance
Anubias Congenesis
Misc Crypts (red, green - all standard types)
Madagascar lace
Calamistratum
Java Fern
X-mas moss
Riccia
Rotala Indica
Rotala Rotundifolia
HM
HC
Subwassertang
Monosolenium
Mini Pellia
Fissidens Fontanus
Java Moss

Fauna
02 German Blue Ram pairs (4 total adults)
10 2 month old electric blue rams
11 Espie Rasbora
09 Spotted Rasbora
08? Dwarf Cories
6? Ottos
3? Dwarf Gourami (croaking type) - were fry from one of my other tanks.

Dunno what else is hidden inside.
After pulling out and organizing the rest of the plants floating I will be posting photos of this neglected tank. Its not too terrible but there is much for improvement.

I'm running another 5 tanks, when I have time I'll post photos of them as well.

You got them from Joe? I got 20 of them, one group is at my girlfriend's

I suggest you feed them Hikari sinking pellets. I fed mine brine shrimp maybe 4 times, I don't raise BBS.
Kept them in a breeder net for the first two weeks while I switched them from live food to sinking pellets and eventually got them to start going for flake food.
After they started to go for flake, I gave my girlfriend her group and 10 I let all mine go free.

All are alive and doing well after about a month or so. :^)
