    Here are some new pictures after adding the new piece of driftwood and rearranging some of the plants. The water's still cloudy but WC day is Monday so I'm trying to hold off on doing that.

    Me too. It took me a bit to figure out how to put it in there but I eventually got it. I laid it so it made a little cave under it for the Bristlenose Pleco and Otto's. Since adding it the Ottos seem more active, I'm not sure why.

    I makes a nice place for them to retreat to if they feel threatened.

    Looking like a tank again! :)

    I'm wondering if it's already dropped the pH some and that's why they're all over the tank now. *Goes to test*

    I dont think that will happen so soon! It usually takes A LOT of wood and a few weeks for it to affect it.

    I ended up doing my water change early to help with the cloudiness of adding the new driftwood so here's an updated shot. The second picture is one of the newest Otto Cats I purchased last week and to the right one of the two Habrosus Cory Cats that lived (out of the 4).
