Looking real nice! That’s literally almost the same hardscape setup I did in my cube. You have good taste lol. Can’t wait to see it grown in.
Thank you! I can't wait for it to grow in myself lol.
FWIW, I've been using Omega One as my staple food for years and the fish do great on it. Haven't tried New Life, but I've heard good things about it.
Thanks irishspy, i'll see if I can get some in the next couple of weeks.
Thought I might do a little update. Here's the latest picture of the tank.
The tank is now very heavily stocked, and a considerable amount of algae has started to appear on the glass and on some of the anubias. For the most part the plants look like they are doing ok.
I bought a horned nerite recently to help with algae control since the amano died. I am partial to horned nerites just because they are smaller than other nerites but I did not realise how small it was until after I added it to the tank. I ended up moving one of my existing horned nerites to this tank. Hopefully they eat the algae (slightly) faster than the algae can grow.
The anubias and bucephalandra are doing fine as expected...
The rotala looks like they are doing ok too. They have lost some of their lower leaves but I guess that's to be expected in a low light environment...
Currently stocking is as follows
2 sparkling gourami
5 oryzias latipes (i think. Definitely not oryzias woworae in any case)
5 corydoras habrosus
2 horned nerites
I am also considering adding some neocaridina but probably not something flashy like red cherries because they gourami would probably make quick work of them but eh, we'll see how things go in the next couple of weeks.
