The mental image I have is for a curtain of java fern along most of the back, Asian water ferns along the sides, and mosses in the front corner. I have the ozelot swords and echinodorus parviflorus set up to frame whatever goes in the centerpiece. I'm going to have to find a new place for the cuttlebone.

The buce on the tree and subwassertang on the amphora should come back in now, I hope, which will help with scale.

I have eco complete around the edges and in the front center. The old gravel makes something of a U, and the flat black stones trace it. I have ordered that decorative garnet sand to put on top.

I'm amazed at how bright this light is compared to the 29 gallon. It's just 6" depth difference, but, in this tank, the light is almost overpowering.

My daughter wants to know what we'll be doing with the 10 gallon. What kind of fish is a quarantine?

She eats bloodworms fine, but I don't really see her eat anything else. I usually only do bloodworms once a week.

I feed them very well- a good variety of frozen foods, some store bought and some homemade.

She carried food into the amphora (the broken bottle thing she has claimed as her own) and dropped it there yesterday. I didn't see her eat anything today.

Rams like to spit food out repeatedly.This is sort of how they chew?
They forage for food off the bottom most often.
I find they like some of the smallest food you ever imagine...
My adults will still eat decapsulated BS eggs and 200-400 micron golden pearls...
I crush up some of my pellet[NLS type] so there are a variety of sizes..

They definitely like to forage. They seemed to be happiest when they were hunting and eating the baby snails. I'm hoping the ramshorns will multiply like so many people complain about.

Moving to a new tank is stressful.

They are Mikrogeophagus....Mini earth eaters...That is how they forage in the wild.. Besides letting some food settle for a short time , I add food into the HOB outflow and it makes it move jut enough sometimes...
MTS can live through them but maybe not the others...They are live bearing snails I believe so maybe the young can run just fast enough!
Egg eaters eat eggs....
My apistos were whipping the assassin snails before I moved them...And ate all the eggs. I moved the fish into the tank without thinking it through...
