My new 6g!

Hi all, i'm new here. Posted some on the general discussion, but here are more pics.

First one is from 2 weeks ago

The last two are now (8 week old tank). Added some anubias which i attached onto driftwood. Been trying to stick some java moss on too, but it keeps on drifting off and now is just scattered all over the gravel. Very annoying. Hopefully it'l just grow out into a carpet there.

Any comments are appreciated!

looks good but your tank size is only suitable for shrimps and maybe one gourami although I would think they need a bigger tank as well.

I have the same loach you have and I recently upgraded to a 75G. They're much happier in the new tank.

you could tie the moss down with thread or fishing line so it'll grow on the wood. Be sure not to tie the moss down in too thick clumps though for it may rot.
