All 9 survived the first 24 hours. I have to confess, I was a little cautious with acclimating them because a pH/KH
test told me the difference in params from where they came from and my tank were pretty signficant. So I acclimated them slowly over three hours. Good to see that it seemed to work.
They haven't taken any foods yet I don't think. Last night I crushed some flakes to a pulp (their throats are really tiny) and it was recommended to me to give them baby brine shrimp. All I could get was frozen brine shrimp and they didn't take to that either. In fact, none of the fish did, the fussy little buggers! Will go get some Cyclop-eeze or Hikari micro pellets tomorrow.
Here is a front tank shot.
New plants include:
Eriocaulon Setaceum (the green bushy ones)
Echinodorus Tenellus (pigmy chain sword)
Myriophyllum diccodum (the bushy red one at the back)
Hydrocotyte tripartite (the three leaf clover stuff at the front)
I only really ordered the first two. I'm really looking forward to the pigmy swords filling out.
If you look towards the top you can see the threadfins. I couldn't get a decent shot of them.
Those that know the massive java fern I have there may wonder where it went. As punishment for taking over my tank, and ruining any chance I had at a scape, it has been seconded to a friend's pond until such time as my 4x2x2 is ready.
