Tank is about 2 months old now. I have a TDS meter in the mail. I will use that to gauge WC rather than the 20% week that i've been doing.

current stock
8 celebese rainbows
6 threadfin rainbows
2 dwarf neon rainbows
3 ottos
5 ghost shrimp (1 berried)
2 amano shrimp (they are bigger than the fish!)
3 nerites
1 rabbit snail
many pond snails

water clover
java moss
java fern
broad leaf amazon sword
melon sword
onion plant
crypt wendtii

future plans - trade the 2 dwarf neons for 4 gertrudae rainbows. i'm just starting to culture live foods too starting with microworms.
