I went back to Al's this morning to get some Java Fern, but they all looked like crap. The employee suggested "Willow Hygro". It looks similar and IMO, nicer. I also like that it can simply be planted in substrate.

I also picked up some liquid ferts. I'll watch and see how the plants do on it, but if they start looking looking bad, I'll get some root tabs.

I'll add pics a little later! :D

If you've seen some of my other posts over the last couple weeks, you'd know that I've been having troubles cycling this tank. I've been reading up on "silent cycling", though and I think I'm going to give it a shot.

I'm thinking Java Moss, Ludwigia, Pennywort, Corkscrew Vals and some kind of floater, if I can find one.

Fitting all these will require some rescaping :D

Wow... It's been a while.

I had a couple discouraging months for fish keeping. Between not being able to get my tank cycled, a bad algae bloom, and a pond snail infestation, I was pretty frustrated and was nearly ready to find Walter a new home.

Everything has settled down now, though.

The tank finally finished cycling and let me tell you, I do NOT miss daily water changes. The algae cleared out, seemingly on it's own and thanks to these little guys, my snail problem is nearly over.



The tank hasn't changed much, aside from some plant growth and a black background, but I plan to add some more plants now that things are going more smoothly.



I may even start a sorority in my other ten gallon :3
