So this pretty much catches us up. Its been aprox 4 weeks since I got the tank, and I think everything is comming together perfectly.
Yesterday I paid a visit to the local aquarium store to get an companion for my Blue Gourami. She has been hiding alot and the Pearl seems like it bullys her, so i picked up a small Dwarf Gourami to maybe keep her company.
I was also so intrigued by my Snail I had to get 2 more. I have been doing alot of reading lately and really liked the Zebra snail. I have been bugging my aquarium shop the past 2 weeks to get some in, and yesterday his shipments arived! When I showed up he showed me some of the Onion snails he just got in, and i couldn't make up my mind... so I got one of each!
The Onion Snail:
And my Zebra Snail:
While I was there, i spoke to the guys about feeding and they suggest I do Black Worms. He suggested I get a bottom feeder to help keep the loose worms in check. It didnt take me long to pick out this Cory Catfish he had hiding
I couldnt seem to get any pictures of my Dwarf Gourami. She is small and shy and has been hiding alot. I did get a few good pictures last night without any glare on my tank.
Here is my Pearl Gourami. He loves to hang out and never really hides at all:
Here you can see my Blue Gourami. I got a quick pic as she was moving from one hiding spot to another. You can also see 2 of my Black Skirt Tetra's trying to get some camera time:
I will be posting up more soon when progress continues. I just ordered some adjustable R-G-B LED
lighting and I am working on some PVC
plumbing to help the pump circulate water better and control the underwater current.
Soon I would like to start replacing some of these fake plants with more live plants too
