Starting from the beginning...
The initial setup, right before I introduced my fish from their old tank.
Two days after the move. Managed to get a shot with all 6 of my
Bloodfins. Zoom! Look at them go!
This is what it looks like currently. I've been dosing Excel about every day for almost a week and I've already noticed results, the most noticeable being that the residual algae left on leaves from my old tank has been disappearing. Woo hoo!
Close-up of the trident java fern I recently purchased. Tied it to the driftwood using sewing thread. Does it look all right to you guys? I think I did an ok job
To do list as of right now:
-Rearrange plants and create better composition
-Paint or otherwise somehow create a black background
-Stocking plan: Add 6 new tetras (undecided which breed) and 3 new panda corys (my current corys are super shy and I think adding to their school may liven them up a little)
Feel free to chime in with any advice or suggestions! I'm getting the hang of things but am still pretty new and learning.
