    Thanks. I'm hoping it'll fill in on the left side soon though. It's looking a little bare there :errr:

    Well, just a quick update. I've ordered some blyxa japonica and crystal red shrimp. They should be coming in sometime next week. I'll probably be putting the blyxa japonica around the rocks and will be updating with pictures once I do that!

    Received my b. japonica today and went out and bought some Eleocharis montevidensis as well. I've split the e. montevidensis up into two groups and plants them on each of of my tank in the back and placed the b. japonica in around the rocks. The pictures aren't the best because they were taken with a camera phone but enjoy them!

    The camera's not the best and the picture was taken a right after I got done planting so it was stir up a little. It's a little of both I guess.

    MY SHRIMPS CAME IN TODAY! After wanting some crystal red shrimps for nearly two months now, I finally went ahead and bought some. They're really curious about their new tank and they've just been swimming all over the place so it was really hard trying to get some good shots of them. Well, enjoy the pictures!

    Thanks! Besides for the fact that somewhere along the way I got what I'm hoping is planeria, I'm loving the tank! Does anyone know how to get rid of planeria? I've tried fenbendazole but that hasn't worked for me so far so I'm really beginning to wonder if it is planeria. It's a small, white, wriggly little worm, kinda like planeria but the medication hasn't had any effect on it so I'm wondering if it is planeria.

    I´m really scared to ask for a photo :D Haha, I´m sure you understand me ;)
    I have heard Flubenol is good against planaria, but before you have to be sure it planaria..

    Haha my phone probably isn't capable of such details in photography otherwise I'd post a picture. As far as flubenol goes, I wasn't able to get a hold of it around these areas and from what I've read about planeria treatment, fenbendazole should've worked as an alternative. Oh well, as long as it's not harming anything in the tank, I guess I can deal with it.

    I use fenbendazol before in my cherry shrimps tank. It work great and most important no casualty. I do not know about CRS though, never try it before.

    Might consider painting the white pvc piping with krylon fusion spray paint black or another color other than white to blend? Tank is coming along great! Looks beautiful!
