O.O That's EXACTLY the female I had my eye on! A lovely purple cambodian! At least she looked purple-ish. And there was cute little yellow girl too.

Oh MAN, I'm torturing myself right now. DX I want to go back and get one so bad!

I espacially love when they have big, black eyes. When I start a sorority, those are the females I am going after.

I felt guilty for not checking up on your tanks since you've been so kind to read my journal So I decided to poke my head in here lol

Your tank is really looking nice by the way :) I love the way you used the driftwood and the moss. It's filling in quite well ^^

Wow. It's been way too long since I updated this!

A week or so after my last update, ammonia went down and everything evened out. I haven't done a water change in approx 3 months, just adding water and topping off what's evaporated. I'm really really happy with it. ^^ The initial work was sooo worth it!
What's new:
Added 5 male guppies
Gallifrey my male DeT now inhabits the tank (Daniel is in a 3G)
Added a cabin a few weeks ago
Narrow leaf anacharis is taking over! XD
Algae has been nonexistent for quite some time
Cyperus helferi is finally growing well
Might be adding ghost shrimp soon

Here are a few pics. c:




The guppies









And bonus pic. Gallifrey LOVES the cabin <3

The setup in pic 9 pleases me! Looks like a little jungle to me...an I love jungle-like tanks!

It could get worse than rain, it could hail!

Nice and lush, I like it! Are you using soil with a sand cap? What lighting?
