So, I went to my work and picked up some more moneywort, anacharis, bacopa, and water sprite, and ordered some cabomba from Mo, which other than one strand is blossoming marvelously. The extra stem feeders are really helping growth of plants and reducing growth of algae. :) Unfortunately my ghost shrimp seem to all be dead/gone. I didn't find bodies, though, so I guess Connor had himself a nice snack.
My naturally planted 2.5, finally blossoming now that it has some fast growing stem feeders. (Thanks to OldFishLady's advice!) The only reason he doesn't have a cave is because of his banana plant; the leaves curve together to make a little natural cave. :) I just bend the leaves under just slightly any time they start to straighten out, cause I like the look. This is home to Connor, the cambodian butterfly piebald crowntail.
The 10 gallon, recovering from an algae bloom. ((It's slowly disappearing thanks to OldFishLady's advice!)) Sorry for the glare, my phone camera's terrible. This is home to the blue (marble?) combtail(?) with a red mask, Sora. Along with his tankmates, six golden white cloud mountain minnows, four julii cories(or possibly three-line, hard to tell), and an assassin snail named Ezio to protect me from stray snail babies. ((I realize I'm a little over stocked, but I'm also heavily planted. I have three baby swords, an adult sword, looooots of stem feeders, and it's an npt, so fish waste=fertilizer.))
