NPT Madness

So this is the first one, I'm re-doing, my 10gal

Inside stuffs:
Soil, sand (lol)
Shasta (male hmpk)
1 glass green frog (he's in there just cause he's cute xD)

Mopani wood
Amazon Sword
Amazona Compacta (says it stays at 6" we'll see about that)
DHG
Water Wisteria
Java Fern
Moneywort
Banana Lilly

2x 13 Watt CFL 6500K bulbs
No filter

Goals:
See if the DHG will grow in this xD
Add more livestock later?

I have 1x 5.5, 1x 5, and 1x 2.5 gal tanks left to plant but those will take some time yet gonna try to do one per month (maybe 2 depending on plant growth in this tank that I can carry over into the 2.5)

Now that that's done
*stretches*
It's good to be back on the forum

After doing some browsing I think I want to add celestial pearl danios to this
(once the plants have grown in)

And if they work out okay I might do a couple of shrimp either bees or amanos (bees because they'll be better able to hide and because I don't like ghosties, amanos because they're awesome algae removers)

The tank water is clearer today :) Shasta is having a good time living it up like a king lol, the show off flashing his shiny fins at whoever looks at him xD

So update photo on the tank, not much has changed, but the banana lilly has really taken off, and is now working on a 6th leaf and the wisteria is sporting new growth ^^ it's hard to tell in the picture but you can definitely see the change in the lilly :)

Also, I saw a BEAUTIFUL butterfly boy at the store today, and since I had a spare tank, decided to get him. He's still pretty shy, but I'm pretty sure he'll have a full 180 degree halfmoon spread

First two are the new boy last is the tank :)

Photo Spam Time!

The 2.5 gal has the new guy and a small anubias nana

It was SO hard to get pictures of these boys the blue and black one is still unnamed (ideas?) and Shostakovitch is the pk (he's extremely fast so I did the best I could with him)

Update on the 10 gal:

More growth! Yay! the wisteria is really taking off. The sprigs started at about 3" and now they're around 5" :) the smallest leaf on the banana lily is now about 2" across and will probably get to about 3.5" before it reaches the surface of the tank

I'll post pics of the other 2 boys later (and I need to update the sig lol)

PHOTO SPAM TIME!!!

So it's been a little over a week since I planted and my sad little 3 leaf baby sword now has five leaves and is a good 2 inches taller at least than it was. The compacta has sprouted 2 leaves that are 3 inches taller than the rest, it looks a little silly lol IN THE PAST 2 DAYS! Seriously... one leaf appeared yesterday, and now there's a second tall one today lol. There's also a 5th leaf on the banana lilly tha finally unfolded yesterday or the day before. I'lll post pictures tomorrow I think, for a update.

Also, I bought some plants off a member here, and as soon as they get here I'm going to plant at least one of the 5 gals so I'll have more npts to dote on and to share. xD though I'm not really sure anyone reads this xD

Lol thanks Rowdy, I'll try to get some pictures tomorrow. I THINK the DHG MIGHT be starting to carpet, the little tufts I planted look much bigger today than they did in that first pic. When I post the update photo you can give me a second opinion XD

oh also, the moneywort in the back sprouted a baby plant today that's already about a 1/2" tall xD

Okay here's the update photo I promised :D you can't really see it there, but the sword in the back is much bigger and the wisteria has grown a lot as well as the moneywort.

Also, my husband and I just adopted a kitty! She's a tabby and will be coming home on Thursday after she's been spayed and gotten her shots
