Looks like there's a party at your tank!

Plants looking clean and very fresh.

GSA is mainly sticking to the glass so a bit lucky there. Still minimal algae but dare not take lights any higher and will let the t5ho bulbs stay as is until xmass I think. Tempted to swap to LEDs completely but everything is pretty much set nicely so must resist temptation to experiment (will never get another tank if I don't stop mucking around with this one..)

It is hard to make the change.

Though size wise hardly a comparison, but on my original Fluval Edge 6.6G had the halogens - 1st generation version and grew things very nicely for low to medium plants, after 2 years of waffling on the decision (even had the new LED light fixture to retrofit into the original equipment) made the change and it DID mess up my plants and the tank wasn't the same, had to do a complete change!!!

So BE cautious!

Is the pilot still trapped in the plane?

Lives out of the fridge and competes with kids for ice cream (which would explain why it disappears so quick!).

Sometimes think about replacing it all with a small tree stump with roots or something.

Do what YOU want! If you like your tank then keep it that way, if it makes you smile or smirk, than keep it. Sometimes a change in tank decor can help and sometimes it ruins everything! <3

It's a cool piece. I've never seen one like it. Ice cream eating pilot and all....

. True on changing ornaments around. I have been offered a sunken old sailing boat which I think would be nice with the height but this all works for the moment.

Picked up so seed growing pots to try growing the flower seeds. Not sure there are any seeds but was told I should get more flowers anyways.

I don't know if this catfish can be seen (head is just under and to left of light flare) but I reckon it has a bioload of all my catfish and loaches put together

Well maybe not that bad but it pushes the loaches and catfish aside, grabs some food, I see it for 10 seconds and then .... that's it for the day

No more impulse auction buys!!

Catfish with a little cornmeal breading can be tasty for dinner. Keep fattening him up. Lol
