I just added some Xmas most that was randomly floating in the original tank... I only found 3 rainbows... 1 is red, 1 is brown and the last (I am sure it is female) is a blueish brown... sad day

I didn't know 2.5 gallons came in bowfronts... that is so awesome!!!

Thanks it all happened when i added the black skirts for QT... I so didn't expect it with the tank being as planted as it was, goes to show what i knew... I may buy some more if they don't breed...

If they do come back that would be epic! They were super cool looking before...

Okay so as an update I moved everything, plants, snails, and shrimp, from my 2g cube to this tank :) so now the fauna/plants have changed some :)

Plants: pennywort, hornwort, duckweed, dwarf sag, anubias eye, rotala, and Xmas moss
Inverts: 3 rainbow shrimp, 16 RCS, 1 mom a assassin (Sage), 25 eggs from Sage, baby Ramshorns (sages fav), and a few MTS...

I am at work now, getting ready to leave, when I get home I will make the tank look a little better and take some more pics!

Yeah I haven't messed with it besides taking the filter that came with it out, way to strong blowing the shrimp around. Going to build a sponge filter for it tomorrow (later today whatever lol)... I also love the jungly look to it and the back is actually all open, the rock pushes the plants forward. I also spotted on one my females saddled so i am expecting a berried RCS soon!
