Thank ypu, Hadoken! ^^

Here's tonight updated pic of my tank. Just got a piece of drift wood ^^



My blue led (for during the day when I'm at work), a new piece of drift wood!! (My ph is stupidly high, driftwood naturally lowers it right??) , ZugZug moving about and a brine shrimp dinner. :) I love you Doctor!! I also made a baffle for the Doctors filter. Hopefully this does a good job and keeps his bubble nest from popping. I also got a versa top (glass top) but I'm returning it to my store... |; no point to it when it won't stay on my tank cause of my filter and wires. Sucks too.. I was so excited to get it :/ oh! And I got a real friggin thermometer so I can make sure his temp is always at 80.

Wooo! Yea, driftwood can lower PH, but your fish will be used to the PH levels as they are. Indian Almond Leaves (IAL) help as well (or blackwater extract).

Do you have a pic of your java fern?

Here's my boy Socrates' new 5.5 gallon. I need to get more plants for it, but it's themed after Atlantis =3 The filter output is directed at the back of the tank on the lowest setting, so there's virtually no current, but you still get a cool bubble wall.

I made the background myself by laminating a print out - it's a picture of Atlantis, but I'm sort of bummed that it doesn't show up very well.

And the second pic is with the LED crystal on.

Socra is having a blast exploring.

I'm redoing Alighieri's tank as well, so I'll probably post pics of it later.

Thank you for the advice! I pulled the fern out of the sand, is it okay if it sits on the surface?

There are two plants, one is tied down the other is not. I had them both tied to a pebble but one got loose, it stays at the bottom so I just let it be and took the pebble out.
