Random iPhone pics. Nothing special. A work in progress.

@Donald I think they're special!  Everything is looking good.  Substrate looks good, how are the corys doing on it?  I always feel that Flourite is too harsh for them, but if it's kept very clean it might be fine.  I really don't know!  

What is that object with the grey suspended beads in the third pic?  Whatever it is, it looks cool. Cool

The Flourite is about 5 years old (probably should be replaced?) and is basically rounded off pieces of clay. The barbels on the corys look fine. I would rather have them on fine sand though. If I want the Dwarf Emerald Rasboras to breed, the corys will need to be moved anyway.

The object is a DIY prefilter. A small bottle with holes drilled in it hold a Fluval filter in place on the end of an intake tube of a HOB. Unscrew the clear bottle from the white top to clean to the black foam.

Oh, that's so interesting! Now I can see it's holes, not little grey beads. Good idea!

@Donald, so how is this tank doing?  Any updates?

A very late reply. Sorry. Recent iPhone pic...



A lot of dwarf hygro and Amazon swords. Anubias and razor fern on Mopani wood. And one lonely crypt.

2M/5F lime-green Endlers. 5 Panda Corys. 1 long-fin Leopard Danio. 1 Dwarf Emerald Rasbora. A couple of Assassin Snails.

Better late than never! *lol*

It's looking great, Donald! All the plants have filled in well without being too crowded. I love the "wild" look, and I am SURE the corys do, too!  ThumbsUp

Permission to post on facebook sir?

Facebook? Sure. I can get some better photos this week to choose from if you want. The dwarf hygro really contribute to the wild look. It has to be trimmed a lot in order to keep it from crowding out the other plants. The corys explore all the way to the surface. I think the endlers love it also. The females get places to hide from constant chasing by the males.

@Deb Two more photos. The last ones for now I promise. They were taken on Thursday after a Wednesday W/C.

In your experience, do dwarf hygro leaves fall off easily?
