    I dumped two tetras with similar symptoms on their abdomen.

    Overall, i think the tank is doing well. Growth is slow but I'm fine with it. At least no algae outbreak or death. I hack n saw the driftwood and redo the tank bout week ago.

    Here is the new setup







    Replaced monte carlos with Staurogyne repens as carpet plant. Mainly because I will be getting some panda corys later on (insisted by my dotter) and MC will be easily uproot by them. Sudo sands is very light and loose I doubt it will hold MC well.

    Will give the tank another week before adding more fishes in. Can't wait !

    Thx limz

    More room for plants too. Initial intention was to let Shrimps hide below the dw but failed badly.

    Anyway, added 8 Galaxy Rasbora, 2 otos, 2 panda corys and more fire red shrimp on 3rd April. All doing well. I can't be happier especially when all new shrimps survived. Panda corys are fun to watch, always busy and running around. Probably will get a few more panda corys soon.

    Time to add more colours to my tank. Need help with red/brown plant suggestion for my tank. I have only a few on my list that may be suitable for low tech tank.

    alternanthera reineckii
    Ludwigia red
    Red tiger lotus

    Any other recommendations appreciated, thx

    From the red plants I tried with low tech, ludwigia red worked out well for me.

    You can try some of the Echinodorus sp with red/orange/brown leaves.
