Well much to my dismay, I ripped all my DHG out of my tank. I saved the stuff I bought from PetSmart because it was running like crazy, but the majority was from eBay and it was dying off like crazy and polluting my tank.

Oh well. I jumped into planting my tank before I really did any research and just planted in the gravel...so now that the DHG is temporarily out I'm going to replace the gravel with a laterite/flourite combo asap. The sword is still growing like a weed and the new watersprite has doubled in size in the week or so that I've had it, so hopefully they'll do even better with new substrate (and I can have a more natural-looking tank floor).

I may ditch the DHG all together and go for a chain sword or dwarf sag though. I'll keep the DHG around for my betta tank, but the chain swords and dwarf sag look more like the true "out in your front yard"grass that I want.

I've ordered some java moss too. I'm goint to try to create a moss wall for the background since the black paper just isn't doing it for me.

I'm also re-vamping my fire bellied toads' terrarium and the java moss will go in there as well.

I ripped the white ribbons off the driftwood I bought and I'm going to plant them in the terrarium too. I'm excited for payday already...two new projects to keep me busy!!

I added 4 rasbora heteromorpha to my tank today, along with a 3rd albino corydoras catfish. They're fliting about happily right now. Well, settling in after feeding and lights out.

I'm a little overstocked now...but I over filter and have a fully planted tank, along with a 20 long to move them into once I get into my own place again.

Now next payday I'm gonna grab some flame moss and then I'll be complete until my DHG fills in. then I'll start removing clumps and selling them...and throw in some more background plants to go with my marble queen radican sword. I might do a java moss wall for the back, but for now I'm gonna let the livestock and plants settle in.

I think my harigrass is retarded.

It's sending runners all over the place...including up. And it's creating mini plants in the middle of the water column. Come on hairgrass. I don't want you to grow up! I want a carpet!

It's getting there, slowly but surely. But man. The guge runners growing straight up are pissing me off. Haha.

One fish, two fish...


This is my fish blog.

I'm 21, work at a petstore and love all animals.

I've recently taken a huge liking to fish, and you will hear all about that here.

Presently I have but a small ten gallon with a handful of glofish, 2 otos and 2 albino corydoras.
I'm restricted living with the parents, but I've got some saltwater and larger freshwater
planted tanks planned (gonna need a place to move that giant radican sword!)

The tank looks haggard right now because I just planted the dwarf hairgrass about a week ago.
Obviously I'm going for the carpet look and I can't wait for it to fill in.
I've got two marimos in the tank and the radican, of course. The white ribbon is gonna have to go.
It came with the driftwood for some reason, but being non-aquatic, I might anchor an anubias there instead.

Anyway, that's about all I have going right now. Follow me if you enjoy fish as I do :)
Happy reading.
