Some of the fish and one of the tanks

Took some photo's of the fish yesterday and wanted to share. Also posting a picture of my 12g NPT.

Some plants are doing better than others -- I'm trying to find the right balance between light, nutrients, etc. right now. I'm hoping it really fills in during the next few weeks. My filter was acting up so I decided to leave it off since the tank is about 3 to 3 1/2 months established. Hopefully that allows for a better CO2 build up and the plants will react positively to it.

Amazing! Planted tankx look really good and really natural, I'd like to make my tankx planted but sadly the only thing I can keep alive is the basic marimo moss ball (oh..I had hornwort and duckweed but the hornwort shedded too much and the duckweed stuck to everything drove me crazy).
I don't have a green thumb at all!

Again, ur tank is really beautiful!!

Nice job.....your tank looks great.....with planted tank you will find some plants do better than others-I found that if a plant is doing bad-I will move it to a different location in the tank...sometimes it helps and sometimes not...even from one tank to another you will have some species of plants that will do well in one tank but not another...funny how that is.....

I love the cory cats......and your Bettas look good too....

Sometimes you can help boost the natural CO2 production if you turn the lights off mid day for a few hour and then turn them back on to complete your photoperiod.

Thanks everyone! There's a mixture of apon bulbs, java fern, hygro difformis, star grass, ludwigia (which i may take out... just not doing well, though there is a little new growth), a dwarf pond lily which is staying really low to the ground, some what i think is rotala rotundifolia, a small sword, anacharis, microsword, and frogbit/duckweed.

I have some bacopa on the way as well as some dwarf sag. I think I may try the bacopa in there, but put the sag in a smaller tank.

The snail is "fat" Franklin. He's a mystery snail that had a friend. I went to Mexico for 3 weeks and upon my return was a huge franklin and a disappeared Norman with his shell left behind. He's been growing since.
