My teen and I are babysitting indefinetly 2 corys my sister calls "Tarytons" indefinetly. Corys are so cute-these and the albinos etc. there's a big clown loach we're babysitting also and our own fancy guppies having babies like mad in same tank. Plants are doing well in a 20 ga. high with a flourescent light-probably 20watt plant or cool white whatever. doing great, but out of val. which I like. Clown was on side this morn but was "clowning around" I figured out after having my own little hyperventilation attack since he's one of my favorites. Have lots of giant Jave fern and some floating plants and Whisper filter. Plants are cleaning up the mess very well as well as filter. I like the El Naturel method because I'm lazy and I've finally converted to a green thumb in the aquarium after so many decades of raising guppies and livebearers in general in bare aquariums or luck of the Irish aquariums. I know the long tanks are better for the fish I hear. Your tanks are lovely. I've had trouble keeping neons and don't fool with them and others I don't have experience with unless someone hands them to me on a silver platter and they don't have disease and I have room! Is that val. I see? I had a lot of corkscrew val. at one time and that was cool.Yes, I've had unidentified plants coming up once. Not sure what they were. Probably weak form of crypt.
