    Agreed. The pot looks out of place in there, now. I think you'd achieve an even better aesthetic if you just planted the sword in place, where the pot is. Everything looks naturally beautiful, except for that pot.

    any chance you could place some river rocks around the pot to make it look like the plants are growing out of the rock? Just brain storming here. That would also add a little more visual interest.
    Or as Kevin said, just plant the swords :o)
    Whatever you decide, it really looks great!!

    Totally agree, the pot has to go...was trying to make it easier to clean around it but in this tank it shouldn't be as much of an issue. In my 45 gallon the oto cats have made the amazon sword their personal residence and the don't appreciate me fumbling around in it

    I actually did try that but the rocks I had just weren't big enough especially since my sand bed is only like 1" deep....think I'm just gonna plant them and see how it goes. Appreciate the suggestions though as always!!

    I got home today to find 4 of the 8 Adolfoi corys dead. I am beyond sad. Checked the parameters 0/0/10 so no issue there. No signs of injuries. I remember reading an article a while back about corys releasing a toxin that could be deadly if under stress when bagged for purchase which reminded me of how I received my black corys...all were shipped in small individual bags together in the box. The Adolfoi were shipped together in one very large bag so I'm wondering if this could be the possible cause. In the bag also was something that looked like black gravel but now with some research may have been "coal" to reduce the effects of the toxin. Out of the 4 remaining two seem a bit lethargic and the corys that did were the largest of the ones received.

    I contacted the vendor to see if he has had this experience with previous shipments. I'm at a loss over what to do, I just love them but don't want to order more to have this possibly happen again. I guess I'll have to wait it out to hear back from him and see what happens with the 4 I have left.
