not much to say. the tank was ignored and overgrown, moved into the basement and replanted, then ignored and overgrown again. I can't seem to keep an eye on this tank because its always somewhere I'm not.
it's back in the office though, replanted... and the basis for the 125g i'm building. so i'll be paying closer attention to it.
this time I'm learning from my experiences and choosing a lesser number of plants... no more 40 varieties stuffed into a 20g long hoping to be able to properly care for each one. this time there are 6 varieties in the tank.
two anubius, v. nana and v. veritus
a dwarf hairgrass, a red tiger lotus, Val. spiralis
and some left over java fern Windelov... which i'll be RAOK'ing or selling.
I replanted the african plants a couple nights ago, so eagerly waiting for everything to grow in. the vals in the back are a little melted from the trip, but they should bounce back. I never have issues growing plants in this tank (just the opposite, i cant keep with trimming). I need to raise the lights about 6" i think and break out the ferts. this tank loses about 1/2" of water a day thanks to the server being in the same room. the ambient temp in that room is around 80 degrees.
if you take a look to the left you'll see the java fern, below that a spot of pitch black where the kirbs have dug out a wonderful cave that is supported by stones i've put in there.
other than the kirbs are 7 leopard danio to act as dither fish.
