Never mind... that would throw the balance off.

Fiddled with the raised area a bit. Just ordered some Nilocg ThriveS and will start dosing when it gets here Tuesday.

I kept 7 Chilis in my Spec V with great success. Excellent color and activity. Great fun to watch them hunt and peck at surfaces for micro fauna like mini hyper-color sharks.

Plants are taking off! I've been dosing Niclog Srimp All In One ferts and keeping the CO2 bubbling.

Added some Christmas moss to some flat spots on the rocks, switched out the small rock in the sand for a slightly larger one angled the opposite direction. Also, added 5 low-grade RCS from my LFS ($.99 each). We'll see!

So, I just thought I'd update again. Sadly, all but one of the cherries ended up perrishing as the tank FINNALY finished cycling and took them with it. Oops... rushed it. Anyway, added 5 Amanos a while back, and are all doing well. Added some A. nana petite between and under the large rocks. It's looking good. Trimmed the christmass moss to keep it tidy and growing low. I've been getting a little bit of fluffy/stringy dark green algae that is growing on and in the plants... mostly the moss. It vacuums up easy, but it's annoying. Ideas? And, of course, you'll notice the fish... emerald eye rasboras. Love them! Gonna get 5 more if they do well. Also gonna get more Neos. Gonna mix colors... so sue me. Not gonna try to sell babies.

pH 6.8
Kh 4
Gh 8
NH4 0
NO2 20

Feedback appreciated.

That looks good. Personally the piece in the middle doesn’t look right. It throws off the scale, it might work with a smaller piece, but I think it looked better without anything.
