    :;banana1:;banana1 Yay!! This is the first post of my BRAND NEW BLOG!!!:;rocker:;rocker

    Okay, so this is pretty much on my 39 Gallon Freshwater Tank. Here's the basic info: Right now in it I have:

    Invertebrates: None that I know of...

    Plants: Anubias (Coffeeolia & Nana), Wisteria, Cryptocryne (Red, Green, & Retrospiralis *I think...*), Java Moss, Sword Plants (Pygmy Chain, Amazon, & Ozelot) Bacopa, Dwarf Lily, Algae/Moss Ball, Corkscrew Valisneria, a bit of Ludwigia Repens, and some leftover Hornwort & Water Sprite

    Fish: 4 Tuxedo Platies (2 Parents, 2 Babies named Dummy and Dummy Jr. *long story*), 2 Bristlenose Plecos, 2 Gold Leopard Longfin Angels, 8 Black Neon Tetras (another funny story), 2 Albino Corydoras, 6 Black Kuhli Loaches, 1 Zebra Danio (He's the lone survivor of 6 and I don't have the heart to give him away), and 2 Kribs/ Pevlicachromis Taeniatus (Okay they're really not, but they're close enough)


    I will try to use this to chronicle the changes, etc. of my tank. Thanks for reading!

    Very nice. I like the mix of plants, driftwood, and rock. All of your fish look happy about the layout.

    Is that an Angel in pic two with the long trailing dorsal fin?

    Well, its been almost two weeks since I last posted.. The tnak has stayed pretty much the same, though the chain sword just keeps growing more and more, there are maybe about 20 plantlets that have come off of it, all of which are quite big...

    Oh! I also forgot to add, I have noticed that both of my plecos now have lots of noticable bristles... Hopefully they will get huge! From the pictures I've seen they look really cool with them.

    I have noticed, though, my female Krib hasn't been looking as colorful, and its been hiding in my wisteria. Any ideas why?

    Yay! I just looked and my Female Krib has returned to her usual deep purple! Whatever happened is fixed, and she's back to normal!

    Well, time for a new post..
    I must start with the bad news. Its my spring break and so I have been gone for most of the week. I got back to find that my water level was down quite a bit, and one of my kuhli loaches unfortunately passed away. I just finished doing a big water change and the tank is full and looking great.
    Now for the good news.. The green crypts which hadn't been doing great have had all their leaves fall off, and now they're are back, green and growing again!
    Also, I have noticed I have at least one brown snail, who I am starting to like. It is small, only about half an inch in diameter, and has a look like an apple or ramshorn snail. Should I get rid of it or keep it?
    So that is pretty much it, I'm including some pictures of the crypt, snail, and just general tank.
    K, thanks for reading!
