    Filter's running in my other tank. Picked up some more java fern too...

    Driftwood tannin leaching has slowed to a controllable level so I tied the ferns to it and put it in the tank. I also added an anubias nana which tucked nicely into the driftwood. I've also got one of those marimo algea balls in there now... figured the shrimp would like that.

    Some of the ferns look kinda iffy... some holes in the leaves. They kinda looked like that right from the start. Should I give them a few days or do you think they need ferts? If they do what's a good shrimp safe fertilizer?

    Pics coming...

    Not crazy about the fern on the far right... may have to fiddle with the placement of that one...

    Looking very healthy so far. Good work.

    If I may offer some critique to your set-up...perhaps your wood would look better stood up? Perhaps on the diagonal (leaning against the back) or something similar?

    It does look lovely now, but I feel there is opportunity for aesthetic improvement (feel free to ignore that if you like it the way it is as the shrimp will be just as happy!)

    I might play with it a little... could be hard to make it stable upright... we will see...

    Firefly... I can't remember... did you use fertilizers in your tank?

    None... yet. Was hoping for suggestions...

    I use Dennerle shrimp tank fertiliser.

    Another little tip - for the anubia - trim the roots down to just under an inch. It will stimulate a growth spurt an help them fix themselves to the wood much quicker than if you left them long.

    Thanks for the tip Firefly! I don't think I can get that fertilizer anywhere here... will have to try something else...
