Well even if the plants are still not at their best, my fishes are all doing fine. The barbs move so quick it's hard to get a photo that's not a blur (although this shows nice form)
I did get a decent picture of Buster
The newer barbs seem to have settled in nicely- their colors are just as bold as the older females' and I can only tell them apart now because they're a bit smaller.
Here's two kuhlis wiggling around so busy all the time- I just wish the striped ones were as robust as these guys
and Ramsi the snail hanging onto a slender leaf.
I have both tomato nerites in the same tank now. You'd think a creature as simple as a snail can't tell the difference between itself and a nerite of a different shell, but I think they do. I've occasionally seen a tumpet snail crawling over a nerite, and once the ramshorn briefly on a nerite shell. Never Dimple or Bumblebee Snail with another kind of nerite. But very frequently now I see the two tomato nerites on each other.
