So, I've made a few adjustments to Rusty's tank. I've removed the fake log and added some driftwood I've boiled and scrubbed, added in real plants and have ordered some moss and sand to replace just gravel. He seems a bit happier.
I've also added a new member to the family. Max, our Opaque CT. He's in a small 2 gal with Rusty's old log, but this is only temporary while the new tank cycles. It's a much better improvement from the small little plastic cup he's been living in.
Again, I'm sorry for the poor quality pictures.
