New additions and slow progress

Ive been out of action for a while after moving, and having to downgrade. But the new tank has now been running for around a month. Everything is slowly growing and i'm fairly happy with the progress other than the BGA outbreak, which i am slowly fighting. I went and got some new additions yesterday, and they all seem to have settled in nicely.

The pics:


Apistogramma Cacuatoides (orange flame)

Threadfin, sorry i cant get a good pic coz they move far too quickly

Finally shrimp, just cause.

That is one beautiful Apistogramma Cacuatoides. What kind of plants do you have in there, Rusty?

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

thanks sewingalot. Its a bit of an assortment to see what will work and what wont, as i have a 5ft in storage for when i get a bigger place. Blyxia japonica, and lilaeopsis in the front left. An assortment of crypts including balansae, willisi, undulata and a freebie i got when buying some other stuff. The foreground will hopefully be all jap hair grass with the lilaeopsis and riccia removed when it gets a bit more established, but at this rate that wont be for some time.
