    I think they're asking for an update. If not, then I'm asking for an update. :amillanbliss:

    I love the changes you have made with this tank. Can't wait to see what's next.

    Thank you... I hope to get updated pics up this weekend after glass scrape & water change.

    In the meantime here is the Amano shrimp I got in yesterday, as they aclimate.

    Looking good trenac! May I ask how you keep your plants rooted when it looks like you are using such a shallow layer of Aquasoil?

    Thank you!... I'm actually using Seachem black sand. I wish now that I had made the substrate deeper. I've actually went back and added some extra sand in around the plants. The sand is easy to plant in, it's very fine. It actually holds the plants quiet well, with the exception of the dwarf baby tears which I have plant weights around.

    Got my little Cherry's in yesterday. I've only seen one since I put them in my tank. Hopefully they are just hiding out...

    I took some Tropica Sword from my other tank, which has been shaded an not growing very well. I think I may use this plant in front of the Crypt b, which I usually can find locally.

    Definitely coming along in terms of growth and layout. I think a few add'l pieces of DW and/or rock placed in the mid-ground will really bring it together and give the tank more fullness and hide some of the lower background stems.

    Thank you all... I just received my order of Manzanita wood, which I'm very excited about. Once I get it ready for the tank I'm going to replace the piece of driftwood on the left & most likely add some to the right side.
