As you can see some of the plants did better than others. I think this is because some needed higher light. My plans are to replace the top of the tank with a glass one so I can add a 2nd T-5 strip light. I know that if I do that I will need to add more plants because I am starting to get algae now. I did order some Amano shrimp for this tank and another one today. They will take care of the algae. I had not added any foreground plants because I intended to put corydoras in this tank but have not had the time to get around to it. I do not have a local fish store, at least not one I will buy from, so I have to either make the time to drive down to Alabama or order some online. I used to raise and breed albino corydoras but I want to try a different cory.
