So I upgraded Sherman's tank again. Now he and his 4 juli cories friends are in a 10 gallon tank. He has been glass surfing a bit but it's slowing down and he is starting to explore. He isn't a fan of change but I did want everyone crowded in a 5 gallon.. Cories are loving it!

My first planted aquarium has come a long way in roughly 6 months. I've learned so much about aquatic plants!

Not very exciting but it is only a week in. Redid the whole tank. New substrate, filter and plants. Some crypts, guppy grass, riccia fluitans, Java moss on the driftwood and what I could salvage from my anubias is floating somewhere. Also a melon sword that I am thinking may not have been so smart. It's already out of the water. I got a new cave from Whitecitrus that I haven't seen him use once. Oh well. Lol Have a couple floaters coming my way then I am going to start looking in to Amazon swords I think. Preferably smaller varieties.

This was the 20 before it was decimated by Columnaris. Now it is divided (15 & 5) with a few sprigs of Wisteria & Water Sprite, along with Cacomba.

New plants...and a snail!!

I just rehomed Ollie from a 3G to a 5G. He just went in the new tank this past Saturday. Today I added some more live plants and a Nerite snail. It's so cute. He's very curious, but no sign of aggression so far. My favorite new plants are the Scarlet Temples. They add a lovely fuchsia color.

This is my DIY Fluval V that I finished yesterday up yesterday with the DIY Fishkeeper decal from The King of DIY. There is Java fern and anubias. There is also a mat of Java moss in there temporarily, but it's not in the picture.
