    @MariaS

    Thank you

    No, I don’t plan on going back to get them.
    The fish in my tank are still growing out, I think these fasciatus would cause too much chaos. But I am looking for some that are a bit smaller

    Thanks.
    Most of the Anubias are doing ok.
    But the other bits aren’t doing well

    Eggs all gone this morning.
    My guess it was probably the bristle nose in the night

    Would have been nice to get some fry, but at the end of the day, if I seriously wanted to breed, then I would need some dedicated tanks.

    The main aim of this is a nice feature community tank.

    @Whoknows

    Yes, they are difficult to see unless they are moving.
    When they get scared, it amazing to see them dive into the shells.

    Love it when your post starts off like that. Usually means trouble for me when I get home... but worth it. Easier to apologize than to ask permission.
    Your tank looks amazing!

    Tbh, the SO doesn't give me too much grief. :rolleyes:
    She says that she thinks my current setup looks much nicer than the way it was.

    Thanks

    I went to the lfs yesterday to pick up some frozen food for my fish.
    They had a new shipment of Anubias, so decided to buy a few pots of them.

    The Microsorum and Bolbitis have been really struggling. Not happy with them at all. So I took them out (left one or two Micro that were doing a bit better.).
    And added the new Anubias. Also got a few more bits of wood to add to the pile.

    Not going to bin the ferns though.
    Am going to see if I can convert them to terrestrial and grow them in my greenhouse.

    @A new day

    Thanks

    The Anubias on the left.
    Leaves going brown.
    Any ideas why?
    Most of the others are ok, or have lost one or two leaves. But this one isn't happy.
