This is my first tank ever. Dino and Ross dropped it off last Saturday(Dec 8th) and gave me some Cherry Shrimp, Bristlenose Plecos, and a handful of Malaysian Trumpet Snails. The male Bristlenose is a lot more active than the female. She stays hidden under the driftwood most of the time. She has improved though and is no longer always behind the heater or under the sponge filter. I put a slice of cucumber in there tonight and I watched the male eat it up. He completely ate out the center but wouldn't eat the harder stuff. The cherry shrimp are a lot more visible with the addition of the driftwood. I don't know why but it seems like one you give the animals a place to hide they come out more. I have one really really red Cherry Shrimp. Its a female and she is really pretty. Some of them are clear. I also have 1 or 2 that are bluish brown. They live to hang onto the Red Root Floater and hang out inside and around the Java Moss. Speaking of live plants.....I have 1 Anubias, 1 Bunch of Java Moss, 1 Bunch of Guppy Grass, and two types of Java Fern. The Anubias is my favorite. It is a really nice color and is not overpowering or messing. It just looks nice I guess. I like the java moss too; it gives everything a place to hide and stays put. The java ferns are nice to; my favorite is the one grown onto a piece of rock. But I hate......the....Guppy....Grass. It is so messy and it just keeps floating back up when I try to push it under down around through or anything. Everytime I even try to move it segments of it scatter around the tank and continue to float for about an hour. So I gave up on it and let it float. O yea my bubble wand finally is making bubbles across the whole tank. At first it only did it in the first half of the wand. Over a few days now it is coming out of the whole thing. I have two types of rock in there. One is an amethyst and the other is some brown gem thing. I am sure Dino will give me the proper name. I feed the fish Veggie Sticks(2-3) and Flakes alternating morning and night. Ex: 2 Veggie Sticks in the Morning and a small few Flakes at Night. I will attempt my first water change on Saturday. Lol Its a big day for me. The tank has poop from the BN's scattered around. Its kinda gross actually =). Also some pond snail eggs were transferred from Dino to Me. I squish the babies as I see them. About 5 today lol. So far the tank is turning out really well. The next fish I am adding will be Cherry Barbs, then KuhlI Loaches, and then last but not least Marble Veil Angelfish.
