5ft Rescape

I rescaped this tank this morning...Some fish back in and looking different *L*

1 cory returned by accident, so as soon as i catch it, it will be put in the planted 2ft with the other 2 cories.

All the BN are now out and in their breeding tank (yay yay)

Who returned to the 5ft tank!
Angels ~ Greyson, Tigger, Frell, Biatch, Diablo, Angelus, Castiel (new) & Uriel (new)
5 Pakistani laches
2 Clown loaches
1 Redtail shark ~ Bomber
Riffle Shrimp

FTS (pic taken on slight angle)

I like the balance with the wood. I love loaches too. Won't they eat the shrimp?

Thank you

They probably pick off any small ones, but they tend to leave the larger ones alone so far

It has cleared up a lot. I have got to ask, in the first post you said you have Pakistani laches. I had to look it up to see what that was. Is a local name or a misspelling.
Is this your only tank? I am only up to 45g, but I know that will not be enough. I checked out your local planted tank group and they seem to be a really active group. I chatted a while with one of there members on the fish that have been outlawed there. It was interesting. I can understand why. In San Francisco someone released a pair of albino african frogs and they have bred and eat all the native frogs and fish. They are afraid they might get into the bay and spread.

You have a lot of good growth in a short time for not having used fertz or CO2.
Are your shrimp still alive with the loaches?

Has to do with plant choice I picked plants that will do well in this tank.

Yep the shrimp are still there They come out when food is dropped in and feed alongside the fish. I just dont know how many are in there *L*
