Great start! I am looking forward to the progress, I have looked into that clip light a few times. Let me know how you like it.

The light is a little small for the tank. The goose neck is not long enough to center the light and wish it were a little brighter. Eventually I'll replace it with a 12" light bar.

I don't have any gravel in the tank now as I was trying out the Riccia carpet with the wire on the glass however I'm noticing the snails crawling under the wire mesh and it is sliding all over.

I added 10 Tangerine Tigers last week but I'm only seeing 6. I may not have dripped them long enough, they were in crs water and I'm using salty 7.5. The riccia ground cover is starting to take off. The apple snails have laid eggs.

I really like the Riccia carpet. I bet the tigers are enjoying it!

I've read the rumors of a mailing restriction on spixi but have not been able to find the actual written legal verbiage. They really do clear out th hydra. Only one of my spixi have laid eggs but has been prolific so I moved the clutches to a nursary tank, a few have hatched already. I just wish my tigers would do the same.
