All fish accounted for and happy after a few days in the new tank.

Now I am hunting for a deal on plants that grow from rhizomes and bulbs. Im planning on buying a refurbished current sat pro.

I'm not sure how well it shows in the pictures. But the water has a slight tinge/cloudiness to it...I can't tell if it's leaching from the wood or the rocks.

The driftwood was already in a tank for months so I thought all the tannins were leached out. I had it out on the back patio for a few weeks though while I setup this new tank.

I'm thinking of making a cholla wood "floating city" for my shrimp in the area on the right by cutting straight pieces to different lengths and suspending them in the water column under the driftwood.

I haven't worked out how to do that yet... (fishing line tied to the cholla, hung from something, a lava rock at the bottom inside each peice to weigh it down?)...or have I?!

I found a really beautiful fish to add to the tank. I bought a male and female Celebes (sell -eh -bees) Rainbow fish. I have another male and 5 females on the way. Im going to add 15 more pygmy Cory, and decide if I want hatchetfish (bc I have todecide if I want my tank covered or not) . The duplicareus is hard to come by right now so I'm waiting on adding those.

They look good! A bigger group of those will look cool.

Yah, I got my current satellite pro today in the mail and.....ITS BROKEN!!!!! Wow. it won't even turn on. Trust me I tried everything you are thinking about suggesting. I've lost total faith in Current products as a result and am going to buy a finnex instead. wish me luck.

No new light yet, but I borrowed this current satellite+ off my 55g.

So I decided to go with three plants for now: java fern, anubias, dwarf lily/tiger lily. None of these need to have their roots buried so it works with the shallow substrate. I think I want to add more 'walking' java and maybe something in the back left, but I like it so far. What do you think?

Looks great! I'd add some water wisteria In the back left, it grows nice and tall.
