Re-scaped 35 community, awaiting my pea puffers!

Yes I know dwarf puffers are not exactly recommend for community tanks, I have a spare 10g for the pair if the community tank doesn't work.

My plants were haphazardly poked around in the tank, it was a mess after the snails got finished... I had a huge explosion of rams and bladder snails and it decimated my sprouting tiger lotus and dwarf lilies,killed half of my jungle Val and a portion of my camboba. I was NOT happy. I threw out many of the snails and rearranged the tank, baffled the filter and cleaned up all the dead plants. My corys have the rocks and terracotta pots if they decide to spawn ^^ my guppy fry have the hornwort and camboba to hide in, 3 larger dwarf lillys survived and a ton of smaller ones have sprouted, the original tiger lotus plants are dead but the bulb sprouted a new plant that looks amazing.!

I'm going to be dividing my camboba and the lilies and lotus will spread out creating much more cover. I keep separating the plants with good roots from the bulbs^^ so I'm going to have so many to spread out my other tanks after the move. I'm not quite happy with the way it looks but as everything bushes out and grows it's go to look wonderful.!

Thank you :D
I wish I had pictures of what my original 10g looked like it was a beautiful miniature jungle chock full of guppies and shrimp <3 that's my goal again except with more species ^^

I don't know if they are visible but there are about 30 midnight purple metallic cobra guppy fry in that tank that are 4-5 weeks old

Oooh, those gups sound pretty! I understand the snail trouble- I have mini rams and bladder snails rampant in my tanks. Blech. They've been recently attacking my broad-leaf ludwigia and I am not pleased.
Where did you get the guppies? I love puffers, can't wait to see how they work out in your tank. When do they come?

Dos trop aquatics on eBay :D I really like him even though my most recent order didn't survive shipping :( I got full blue metallic solids and I guess shipping was just too much

My puffers arrived well though! The little guys are cruising around and have even eaten for me already! Yay!

I'm adding pictures of the adult guppies so you can actually see them, I've got a ton more fry in the breeding tank but they Aren't ready to move yet. I'll have some fry for sale as soon as I get my breather bags in ^^

Hehe I'll let you know when I get my bags! If you have an open 10g 10 guppies would be very happy, I always have plants. However they are too small to check sex so If you just want males you have to wait

>3 I have a 15G, but I'm also waiting for a pair of Wild Hybrids from Tourmaline. I'll think about it. How much for a trio + shipping? Would maybe have to cycle for a month or two, first. Actually, scratch that. First I have to convince my parents that I can set up another tank, LOL. I'm getting ahead of myself.

XD a trio would be fine in a 3g Betta tank let's say 3 fish for 6$ I'll have to check shipping but priority medium flat rate box is 13$ and 2$ for a heat pack so 21$ total
