    That's a possibility. I'll bump the co2 up some and cut the plant back. I'm about to be away for a week..so i'll see what it looks like when I return.

    Thanks for the input!

    You're welcome, good plan to see what they do. You may need to find a happy median for the various plants. Some will want more and some less. Good luck on finding the Goldilocks point.

    Looking good man! The ambulia will take over once it takes hold. Mine has anyway.

    I can't wait! I want it to be packed. The anacharis was filling about half the tank before I killed it. I'm sure it won't take long for it to be back.

    If you lived closer you could have all you want LOL.

    I really like the grassy looking foreground. Very nice tank.

    New fish!!

    I realized rainbowfish are awesome.

    I got: 2 Boesmanis, 2 Goyder Rivers, and 2 New Guineas.

    A male and female of each as far as I know. They have been in for about 10 minutes and all seem healthy. One of the Boesmanis is starting to show color already, the rest are still pretty plain. I can't wait until they color up!

    Edit: And of course..I'll put pictures up when I get a chance later today.

    Awesome pics! Congrats on the new fish. I like rainbows too but no store local had any when I set up and I don't like paying shipping. Hope they breed for you!

    The guy at my LFS is obsessed with them. He wants to do a 150 long under the checkout counter with nothing but rainbows. He ordered these in for me.
