    Yesterday I went to nautilus tropical fish and I picked up these espei rasboras! I was thinking about what type of fish you guys mentioned to me and these really stuck w me. Their color is so bright and well they just look so nice lol. My favorite fish so far are harlequin rasboras, Iíve had 3-4 out of 10 for about almost a year now! I wanted some for my fluval but they get big so when I saw these in the recommendations I just had to get them. I got 4 for now, I might get another 2-3 if I ever come across them again

    A school of seven would be just right for that tank. (I'm fond of kubotais, too.) What is the other fish with them?

    Update : Iíve been seeing some greenspot algae on the leaves of some rotalas and bacopa, what can I do to get rid of it? I think I posted a separate thread which states to get some snails (I might get some today at CK)
    Anyways hereís some close ups. On my IG you can see full videos of this tank @aa.aquascaping
    Fish are healthy and so are shrimp, but Iíve noticed shrimp havenít really been breeding... I want to supply them with some nice shrimp food, maybe even some cucumbers? Let me know what I should get.

    I picked up a new 10 gallon tank and ADA Amazonia Light soil at Nature Aquarium today. Iím planning on moving everything from my fluval spec to that new tank, including filter media, water, and all the plants and fish. I have one question, will it leach a lot of ammonia?

    The new substrate will leach ammonia, the question is whether or not you will have enough cycled filter media to turn it into nitrates before it harms any livestock. Now if you take into account that your going from a 5 gallon tank to a 10 gallon tank and doubling the water volume, the cycled material is still set up to handle a 5 gallon bioload, I can almost guarentee some ammonia spikes in the first week.
    What I would suggest, though I dont know if its possible on a spec V because of the rim on the top, would be to run your new filter on the older tank for a week or two. Then when you set up the new tank that filter is already fully cycled, and take the filter media from the spec V and put it in a pantyhose and put inside the new tank for about a week to help the rest of the tank cycle.
    Its a little bit more preparation when dealing with an active substrate and upgrading to a bigger tank, but if you take your time with the cycle you shouldnt have any problems.

    I used Fluval stratum it didnít cloud my water or leach ammonia
    Amazonia 100% leaches Ammonia do daily water changes aroun 25-50% to help with the ammonia

    I guess itís time to update this thread, I wish I could edit the title... is that possible?? Anyone know? Anyways hereís the outcome of the new upgrade.
    At first all of my buce and anubias had some like black color on the leaves and I didnít know what to do so I left it alone... couple days later it was going away after I soaked them in h2o2 water for a couple seconds.
    Here are a couple close up shots
    This is how it looks today
    I just added a paintball co2 set up... I need a new diffuser so ima be on the look out at the auction! Iím also going to look for a new heater since mine is kind of old and might need an upgrade. I added more hair grass. Something I noticed between tropica and UNS tissue filter was that when I used the UNS hair grass it was much easier to separate and the tropica was super messy!! Other than that I still like tropica.
    Hope you all enjoy, leave me some feed back good or bad

    I just noticed that you changed the Spec V for a 10 gallon. Was it just that you wanted more space? I'm thinking of picking up a Spec V (because it will hopefully actually fit on my kitchen counter) and am curious to hear why you stopped running it.

    It was just an idea that turned into an impulse buy. Nothings wrong with the spec v. It was actually doing really good with me, plants growing good and what not but I wanted to add a bit more fish as well. I was thinking about rescaping it but then I noticed how hard it would be moving all the sense plants around. The spec is a very nice tank imo. I still have mine laying around to keep for maybe an new project soon. But I do recommend the spec if youíre going for a small tank! Iíd replace the light though
