I've always tried the tropica 1-2 grow pots of MC, the problem is when i plant into the gravel the shrimp are all over the area i've disturbed. I don't think they are eating it just completely uprooting it even though it's covered in gravel so i gave up for a while. But i'm determined and got some new MC so will give it another try.This is usually my experience as well
Have you been planting TC MC, or tried the pot version as well (shouldn’t be as tender and tasty )
Which gourami do you have remaining?
Tank is looking grand
Thanks Dean I'm happy that's it's pretty old and not covered in algae! I've finally figured out how often i need to trim the rotala too, as they all grow at different speeds it's hard to keep it all under control as the H'ra easily gets shadowed leading to poor growth.Tank looking great sammy and its great when tank seems to reach a ballance and just ticks along nicely thats exactly what my 45p is doing. Looks great still mate glad everything going well

Thanks that's cool to hear! The asian rummy nose don't really bother the shrimp, i've seen them try nibble on a shrimp, but to be honest i think their mouths are too small in general and the shrimp do well not to get eaten. The rams are the only fish that bother the shrimp, the gouramis don't hunt or eat them at all.Really like this tank, one of the reasons I looked into getting a 900 TBH. Followed the journal throughout.
Do the Asian rummy nose bother your shrimp? And do they 'shoal'?
This is such an apt description of these fish!The asian rummy nose don't shoal in the classic sense like the others. But if you have enough of them they usually split into two groups and really energetically chase eachother all over the tank in two separate streams. It's pretty cool and entertaining, especially as that's literally all they do all day, it's like they live in their own world and don't care about being in a tank.
They are very cool, hope I can find some more. Wasn't keen on their behaviour when i first got them as all the other fish are quite slow moving in comparison and it upset the calm nature of the aquarium. But after a while i grew to love them as they are so unique and actually use every inch of the tank.This is such an apt description of these fish!
I should still have 14, haven't found any jumpers or seen any weak/ill ones so I assume I still have them all. It's pretty hard to count them to be fair as they are either flying about the tank or in amongst the plants so rarely get the chance to count them all at once.How many do you have now?
I saw the worm (earthworm Jim) again late last night, 3rd time ever
Lumbricus rubellus has <"that look"> and is lively, but <"I don't know about"> Eiseniella tetraedra or Dendrodrilus rubidus, or quite how flooding tolerant L. rubellus is.I was using my phone flash light and the colours on the worm were amazing, almost rainbow or pearlescent
