Thread: Adam's 38g

    Having had this tank setup since March, I guess now is the best time to startup a journal seeing as the tank is finally in good condition (I hope). Recently I lost a pair of German Blue Rams to ich, but luckily the main tank wasn't infected. So that left me with 10 black neon tetras, 3 Cory's, and the newly added 2 angelfish that are doing really well so far. Currently I'm in the process of switching over to all live plants which is taking a bit longer than I'd hoped. I'll attach a picture of one plant that I haven't identified, but other than that I also have 2 Cryptocoryne crispatula. Both species of plants seem to be experiencing issues with some holes forming in them and I'm not sure why. Any help would be appreciated, other than that, enjoy the journal

    I have heard that crypts sometimes need to get adjusted to your water conditions and so sometimes their leaves will "melt" and look raggedy. I know this happened to about a third of the crypts I bought about a month ago, but I just snipped the leaves and they are looking good now. Compass is the crypt-master...if anyone know, it would probably be him.

    Your tank looks very nice though, good job and I am glad you are going over to live plants. I did years ago and I have never regretted it!

    3 Juli corys right now. I bought my LFS store out of them and was told they'd be getting more in soon so I could grab a few more to make for a larger school. I've been waiting for a while now though, looking like they won't be getting them in.

    Got a shipment of plants in today including an amazon sword and four cardinal plants. Super happy with the health of the plants, everything is looking good! Only ordered two of the cardinal plants but there were a few plants in each put so I had a few more than I planned on which is kinda cool. Took a few pictures including part of the new setup and one curious angelfish, the pictures were taken though before I sifted out broken roots and other unnecessary debris.

    Looks great, nice job!

    I'm unsure what a "cardinal" plant is, though...(?)

    It's advertised as a cardinal plant on the liveaquaria website, but it's really "lobelia cardinalis dwarf".
    The leaves are a deep purple underneath with a darker green on the top, hopefully they'll help to fill in
    the tank quite nicely! And thank you!
