Recently back into fish. Haven't had any since my 125 gallon 6 years ago.

So just a 46 gallon for now, and i need to fix up the 10 gallon breeder tank for shrimp and snails

Just cycled my planted tank so I added 2 blue gouramis, 10 ghost shrimp, 6 otos and a few snails.

Waiting to add Dwarf Puffers soon.
Wanted the gouramis to feel at home first, but one is now constantly nipping the others anal fin and picking on the shrimp. Just lost 5 shrimp in the past 2 days. :(
Ph is 8 - 8.2 so I may have to remove the rocks and see if that helps. I really don't want to use ph down or similar. And don't really have room to add more driftwood. Any ideas?

on my way jesse! surfing

I had to cut the driftwood in half, broke my heart! It was an amazing piece!!! But this darn tank wasn't big enough cry

I had to clean and soak it for weeks too. Still leaching tannins, but owell.

PS correction above: Powder Blue Dwarf Gouramis

Really? Do you have any pics of it before you chopped it?

I think it looks cool the way it is.

I don't have any pics of it handy, on my old pc. If i ever get around to getting my info off the crashed drive I will look.
It used to be in my iguana cage for years. Hence the super cleaning it went through first. But it's been sitting around for a few years now.
