Just a quick update as of 07.19.2014:
-Added Endlers Gulpies (5)
(Sorry about the focus, they're quick!)
-Added 2 Zebra Nerite snails
As you can see there, aside from the snails, my dwarf chainsword is "chaining" into my amazon sword. Is there any harm to either plant if that happens?
That's all for the additions and so far Koga gets along with, or at least tolerates, the Endlers.
I had a white fungus on my Manzanita branch AND diatom bloom from the silicates in the tank. The diatoms faded away, but the fungus was still there a couple months after first setting up the tank. The nerites are voracious waters and have been doing a great job in eating/cleaning the branch and the tank for that matter.
My nana petites are doing well after adding nutrients to the water column via Seachem's Flourish. I was recommended it from another AA member!
I'm going for that underwater tree look. Eventually, the petites will grow into their own and thicken up and look like "leaves" on the Manazanita wood.
That's one handsome Betta!
Oh, my nymphs grew to the surface of the tanks water level then "melted" and became shorter? I'm not sure if that's part of its life cycle but now it's smaller! I'm sure it will grow bigger.
