water changed all around.
got 6 new arrivals. 5 girls floating in their soon-to-be new home and a white male.
He refuses to flare and is very skittish. all 6 are very young still.
I bought a HUGE red wendtii plant from walmart the other day for $4.97. It's been in my QT tanks but I needed it for the new boy(three sides ar blacked out, hoping to calm him down) so I took it out.
On closer inspection I noticed it was 4-5 'plants. I guess it'd been growing for a while in there. xD
I removed two of them, planted one in my experimental outside tank and rinsed the other really well and put it in with the new boy so he can hide behind the leaves.
the other three I left locked together so it's nice and thick. I want to set it up as the centerpiece of the sorority tank but I think it may still be too big. It's in a bag right now. I'll figure something out in the morning.May end up taking the rest of it apart and spreading it throughout the tank instead.
