Additional Information
This tank was set up originally as a species tank for Bumblebee gobies but over time it has become a South-asian biotope. I have chosen peaceful fish from this general area and I believe all the plants are also from this area.
Plants
Cryptycorne willisii, Cryptycorne Wendtii, Cryptycorne retrospiralis, Vesicularia dubyana, Microsorum pteropus, Spathiphylum wallisii, Marsilea crenata, Bromiliad sp.
Fish/Animals
3 Bumblebee gobies, 2 Kuhli loaches, 7 Checkerboard barbs, 2 Pearl gouramis, Ghost shrimp, and some sort of 'plant' shrimp
Materials
Substrate is a mix of natural aquarium gravel, black sand and Flourite sand. Background is Lace rock. There is one very interesting piece of driftwood and one not so interesting one.
