Pwc on my boraras tank. New driftwood arrived but I found it far too big for their tank so I swapped it with Gonzos! It took me ages trimming and removing plant's just too make space for it in the middle. Worth it in the end as my bamboo shrimp love's it lol
Tannins are leaching well into Gonzos tank looks better.
Still struggling to get a good pic of my new fish. Gonzos tank Click image for larger version

You have a wonderful collection of plants and plenty of swimming space for everyone. I think it's awesome. The driftwood looks great, too.

Do you feed your babies brine?

I thought it was brine shrimp eggs but it was dried brine shrimp that I had bought online for a couple dollars. They still like it though

So, I decided to take another video to show of the babies a little better. I'm sorry my hands were shaking a bit.

BABIES!

The adult fish are still pale, I think it's because they're now on a white substrate as opposed to a black one (which is where they were to begin with.)

They started getting snippy with each other, so I think this evening I'm going to put papa fish back into the other tank so there's less stress on the fish.

Turned the lights on for the plants. Saw the other leaf fish come out and play, so I know he's alive. Hasn't quite gotten to the "OH you feed me at this point in the day, so I'll wait like my brother." I'm sure he'll get there.

I need a bottom feeder for this tank though. I know the loaches are bottom feeder-esque, but they're kinda covering midrange. I need something to eat shrimp pellets that the leaf fish miss so I don't have to keep fishing them out... Any suggestions?
