The day has come, my plants (which came from Baylees PAPA aquabid auction) were just planted when these photos were shot. They're cryptocoryne lutea/walkerri and bronze wendetti. Without further ado, here she is:
A close up of the gorgeous wendetti:
I am a tad bit nervous now, hoping they wont all melt and die on me. My wendettis I put in a few weeks ago are probably going to do not so well since they were disturbed yet again (several leaves melted, etc.), although they weren't that welly established in the LFS, so I'm hoping they arent an indication of what's to come. They were probably going to die in the first place. I'm doing a daily dosing fertilization of all 6 seachem products (except trace).
I also added a small 10w heater to help the regular heater hit 82, although it is usually slightly below that. I also replaced the light with a 23w 6500k desk lamp with a swing arm, and an 18w Ott light. Pretty soon, in the next 2 weeks or so, I'm planning on getting some form of tiny rasbora. The dwarf rasbora seems particularly attractive, but I would preferr to get something that is at my LFS. Anyways, any advice you have for me or critical comments are more than welcome!!
This is really pretty. I love the tannins and leaves and whole blackwater look of it.
BTW: I'm adding some dwarf hairgrass most likely to the front...
