So, ive been busy..=]

I got some more plants, more water sprite, and a plant with the word 'feather' in its name..gonna research more.. =] Maybe you guys can help me out?

Also, no place around me sell suck weed. Its frustrating, cause it would be perfect for my pond, and as food!
I was visiting a friend and came upon a pond, with duckweed! I snatched some, and its currently sitting in my bin, in my window, with an air stone. Im hoping if i dont put it in my tanks/ponds for a long time, whatever bacteria may have been on it from thw pond will have died.

And with my 45 gallon, the water sprite i got before, really helped my tank cycle, and i was able to put in my guppies! And as soon as i did, the females started giving birth! So my fry tanks got about 35 fry in it, and the tanks got about 15 more swimming around..=]
I also added about six tall plastic plants to my tank, to help with the bare space.

I put the bristle nose pleco and the rubbernose in the tank as well, and they seem to be really happy, though the RN is very shy.

And, since the guppies are all set and happy in the tank, ive gotten these guys/gals!

Ive since lost a female, so its now 4m/4f.

I think i may be stopping after this, and let the guppies make up for the other three groups i was going to have.
Im still hoping to get a small group of cories, as my boyfriend is really set on them! But he wants the orange ones! they are $20! No way!

Anywhoo, this is what ive been up to, though i do have two more projects id like to do, such as swithcing m y betta and two oldest guppy fry to my 5.5 next to my bed, and putting my cray in her own tank.
And, i managed to get some silk plants that have enclosed wire! So ive made some bushes, and plan on doing a rescape on my 45..So excited! if only i could find the time!

So, i had bought seven pristella tetras and what i thought was a dwarf gourami, though i ended up with a bleeding tetra in my group, and the gourami was a blue three spot, not a dwarf!

So today i returned the bleeding heart and the gourami, and im on the hunt for honey gouramis, and i really dont want to take the chance with the virus that dwarfs give off.

Anyways, i got a few more pristellas, and now my groups at ten.
Heres a few videos of them, the first is them just swimming, and the next is them while feeding..

They are just too cute!

There is one Pristella with a black spot on its head, it looks as if its a coloration issue, you can see him a few times in the videos. Ive been told it may be a sickness in the single fish itself, and not contagious, so ive kept him, though i am still trying to find out what exactly this is...

And just a video of him in his tank..=]


Also, with my big tank dilemma, the out come is that i can now start putting my fish back in my tank, but my boyfriend beat me to it and bought me more cherry barbs, cause he feels bad he killed the other ones. So, i had to scape it real quick from silk plants at the dollar store and this is what it looks like now!

I actually just added some sand to my 45, its looking good!
Its no where near as much as i need, but it covers te bottom, and it gives me an idea what its gonna look like..
I really like the dollar store stuff..makes it look like the fish are swimming in a tree! lol

The barbs are doing really well, one of the males is already courting one of the females..=]
