Thanks Mar! I love all of these tank pics. Makes me want to find more live plants. Really bored of what I find at Petco and Petsmart.
BTW Mar... Your avatar looks just like my new guy in the Fluval Edge! I was worried about those black spots but looks like yours has them too :)
This is Kaida's 8 liter (2 gallon) complete with it's new decor.
I am always worried he will get bored so during his weekly 100 percent change I mess with his things. usually adding a new decoration or two, in this case it was all changed (exept the leaf hammock, that always goes in the same corner so he had a base camp for exploration). I will likely keep a picture diary of the many homes of Kaida, being a relatively small desk tank I can furnish it for a few dollars, that 'log' is actually a junk store tea light holder.
This way he spends his fasting day exploring his new home instead of moping at his feeding hole.
Mar- Your tanks look great! A couple of suggestions- in the second picture you posted it looks like there is an amazon sword plant just sitting on top of a decoration. It needs to have its roots planted into the substrate or it will die. But don't plant the crown, which is where the leaf stems meet and form the roots, or that will rot.
Also, in the first picture, the red and green plants in the forefront look like some from Petsmart that are known to rust. They have a metal piece in the stem that goes down into the base. If you got those from Petsmart, keep an eye on them!
