PostSubject: my 20 L freshwater   Mon Nov 21, 2011 12:18 am

In the fishtank I have:
3 congo tetras
2 ottos
1 reticulated hillstream loach
2 blueberry shrimp
2 crystal red shrimp
6 zebra danios (3albino)
1 yellow spiny eel
a growing population of ramshorn snails

as for plants i have
1 dwarf lily
1 ammannia sulawesi
3 pads of fissidens fontanus
some corkscrew vall
3 crypt wendtii
3 banana plants
some java moss

On the plants, I am not entirely positive on some of the plants.. I would love it if you guys could help me ID some of the plants, I think I have ludwigia in there as well but not sure what kind it is, and I would like to know what type of plant the broad-leaved green ones I have on the far left and right sides of the tank are. I can take better pictures eventually, but this is all i got for now

Lookin Good. Smile lookin good.the taller plants look like they could be hygrophylia carambosa.i am digging that male congo tetra next to the danio.and your spiny eel doesnt go for the shrimps?i gotta hook you up with one more piece of wood or rock and then let those plants grow in.

Thanks alot! and yes, surprisingly I have not seen the eel pay any attention to the shrimp. I was kindof expecting it to go for the crystal red shrimp because they are small, but I have seen all the shrimp hanging out over the last few days. I have seen it eat some frozen bloodworms that made it to the bottom, but I plan to get some live ones to make it more fun for everyone. As you mentioned on another post, I have some plants to trade if you are interested.. I know that AH has most of them because thats where I got them, but I can part with a pad of the Fissidens fontanus moss and one of those small pads of the Eleocharis acicularis if you would be interested. I am going to try and propagate the Ammannia sulawesi a few times before I can trade those away. I definately need another rock or two, but just haven't been able to decide on a layout haha

Thanks alot man! It has actually changed quite a bit, I am waiting on a few new plants to get here and I have added a few new fish after some unfortunate losses, and the other fish have grown quite a bit. I am hoping to get some pictures up next week
