OMG Finally!!! First NPT

Okay, so this is my first 5.5 NPT. After 3 hours it's finally done!!! Whoo!!!

Plants:
Micro sword
Banana Lilly
Wisteria
Cardimine
Mint Charlie
Anubia
Anachars

Getting some duckweed next week! Yay! (along with more wisteria, hornwort, and money wort, most of which will be going into a 3 gal that I'll be setting up next week)

Gonna wait a day before I show it to Nova, the water still has a little clearing up to do, and it needs to get to the right temp of course!

Critters!:
Nova
MTS
Ghost shrimp (Coming soon, probably next week or maybe even this weekend!)

It's a little messy looking, and the photo is blurry :( but I like it all the same

Before you put anything in there make sure you test for results. Sometimes if the plants aren't yours or are use to different parameters they wil melt or adjust and not suck up much ammonia. Happened to me. Just do lots of water changes as there is lots of nutrients in the water, algae can take over at this point so be careful.

Like the Roman look surprisingly!

I've had the plants in QT for a week in my conditioned tap water, so I'm not too worried, the only ones that ever gave me melt issues were the anacharis which have sprouted new healthy growths that I am using in the new tank, the biggest one is roughly 4 inches long.

I'm going to be doing a couple 50-25%s a week until the tank stabilizes more. I'm not too worried about algae, it happens and is natural. If anything the shrimps and snail can feast on it to their heart's delight. The duckweed shipped yesterday so when I get it I'll QT it for a bit and then throw it in, I've heard it out competes algae.

And thank you for the complement :) The columns are one of the most attractive decorations for a tank that I've found, so I'm really excited about it ^^
