They look nice. I really like the colour. I have to be honest, I've looked at them in the shops and never really been fussed on them but those would change my mind.

They are fun to watch. The ones in the shops are usually so freaked out they are buried. Once they get to know a tank and have a favorite spot to hang out, they are out and about foraging with confidence often.

Found the snail

Tank is looking nice! What substrate is that - wasn't sure if there was glass bead in there?

I found what was left of the snail that was messing with my nitrates. It was a big one and about a third was all that was left.

Yes my substrate is all glass. I have tried different types of "inert" substrate over the past decade and this is the only thing I have found that truly delivers long term.

I always had Java and Anubis do well but a few months ago I added the other plants and moss in the glass with root tabs and they are growing well, I'm pretty surprised.
Here is a close up of the glass. Click image for larger version

Had to trim a few things and I have a feeling the Java fern is going to try and take over. Click image for larger version

Looks good. I'm a big fan of Kuhli loaches myself. I had a Kuhli only tank up till a month ago. Now they're sharing with guppies. If you have a camera capable of taking quick snapshots try and catch picks of them when they take off. They shape themselves like question marks then spring up. Cool to see if you can get pictures.
