Thanks. I'm glad you can appreciate the work

The BW isn't as hard as people think. When I first started the tank, I planted it then slowly raised the salinity so the plants had time to adjust. I kept it at 1.015 for a long time, until we had to take the tank down for new hardwood floors. Sadly, during that time, I lost most of the plants. It's taken over a year for it to recover. I was so mad I'd ummm say not so nice things to the hubby, ahem, (the floors were his wedding present to me)

Oh wow! That's a great idea! My son wants a planted brackish tank and I thought it would be a waste of money and time because I would have to replace the plants often. I will try what you did! He would be soooo pleased! (He's 10 years old )
Thanks!

Amazing tanks! Some people really have a talent for this. I never realized what an art form fish keeping could be. Thanks for sharing.

Hey...I can't stop looking through your tank pics! I would love to see more if you have time to post some more. Some cloe ups would be so cool too. ONLY if you have time though. I would also like to talk with you a bit about your tanks...especially the brackish one. I am new to fish keeping and have been struggling with my plants. I will be setting up an 88 gallon tank and plan to have it planted for sure. I just don't have the funds for extravagant stuff Sure wish I did! I would go all out! Anyway, could you give me some pointers and direct me to the best places to buy plants (online) and best place for needed equipment? I would really appreciate it!

Some of the 80g BW... Our two dragon gobys, Ryuu(smaller dragon) the second (the first was a homicide committed by the ghost shrimp and mollies pushing him out of the tank) and Tatsu (large guy)
