I put Wallace and norton together in my new-ish 45g a couple weeks ago! they seem to like eachother, and norton seems to be a little frisky.. :rofl

the plants are anubias, swords, and...uh..let me get back to you on the tall grassy ones. I'm sure somebody knows. ;) putting these into such a deep tank was by easy!!

thanks for looking!

glad to hear your two are getting along so well.

The plants look awesome! the tall grassy ones are vallisneria (val), hopefully they will spread quickly in there :)

Thank you guys!!

Thanks Jess! I made the post in the car and didn't have my receipt with me, so I forgot what they're called.

Here are some better pictures, the last was with my phone!

Nice to see you guys too! I'm super busy these days. The good kind of busy though :)

I think I'm going to grab some Flourish fertilizer tomorrow, I had root tabs before, but with all these plants, I want to make sure I give them all the nutrients they need! Planting these guys was a LOT of work!!

make sure you use root tabs in addition to the liquid ferts. Those swords will benefit most from the root tabs :)

Jess-

Oh really? That's interesting. Thanks for the info :)

Thank you Lisa!!

Anyone know if sea hem flourish is a good fertilizer? :)

seachem flourish is good :)

Swords are considered heavy root feeders, meaning that they get nutrients most easily through their root system (as opposed to the water column), so a nutrient rich substrate will be beneficial to them. Not saying liquid ferts like flourish won't be beneficial, but I think the root tabs are more crucial for the swords in particular particularly with an inert substrate like TMS ;)
