    Yeah good luck! Downoi is a notoriously difficult plant to grow, especially in a small tank like this. From what I've heard/read (never actually grown this plant myself ), it likes high CO2, high light, and soft water, but I'm sure you already knew that .

    BTW, are you a member of SFBAAPS?

    @fish: very true. if it werent for the fact that the plants were receiving high lighting and a nutrient soil tablets, they would have died a long time ago since CO2 isnt there to carry them through. and yes, i am actually a member of SFBAAPS, but i havent been to any of the meetings, and i havent been much of a contributor on the forums...

    How do you keep the water clear when using peat? I can't get mine to not be yellow!

    @divas: giving the peat a good through rinse under lots of water, wringing it out, and repeating will help get rid of most tannins. however, the water will have a slight yellow color, but not strong as the initial. you can also try utilizing Seachem's purigen (magic i tell you). i barely used any peat in the making of this tank. aquasoil was predominantly used.

    yes. the cory was being super cute....it was tagging along with the school as the photos were being shot.
    the fish are indeed tetras, but are a recently undescribed species of Tyttocharax. the designation that they are currently receiving is spp. blue line.
