Started a new nano for some BVS shrimp. I got a box full of buce and crypts in the mail this week and this driftwood just called for the buce. If you don't own a buce, you should. There is absolutely NO explaining or taking a picture of the amazing color on these plants. I only hope I can care for them as well as they deserve. Quickly jumped to the top of my favorite plants.
Still deciding on a permanent light for the tank, the tank came with a saltwater lightbulb so have to find a replacement for it. Please don't ask about the tank - NO endorsements will be given to the company that made it, even took the sticker off the front of the tank to avoid advertisements. It's a beautiful design with subpar silicone and horrible, awful customer service.
Plants - 6 buce plants of various species - these are new and I don't know all the species names yet, Need to find those out - 1 is a "Brownie Ghost" that was a complete and total present from the person that sent the package to me.
3 or 4 tiny crypt babies that are growing out so I don't lose them in another tank. Red mettalic affinis and Nurii Mutated.
Narrow leaf java fern
Unknown narrow leaf crypt
Rotala Mexican something - growing out from some that melted badly when shipped in a trade. Hopefully they continue to recover. Out of 20+ stems these are the only ones that survived.
Moss (my favorite)which I don't know the name of, vaguely looks like weeping moss on the fronds sandwiched inbetween 2 pieces of mesh and attached to the back of the tank with poster borders. I got this moss in a trade, tiny, tiny pieces that have since grown out like crazy and turned into a beautiful moss.
It needs a carpet plant but all I have are dwarf sag and s. repens which both will get to tall. Maybe will look into a e. hydropiper or monte carlo or something small along those lines for the front.
Will house Blue velvet shrimp and Blue Ramshorns and probably a few purple mystery snail babies. And possibly a few Malawa shrimp in the future.
