Yes

Plant harvest day. Normally it's not this messy as I usually just trim the upper growth. However, the Staur repens need to be thinned so quite a bit is coming out, root and all. The root structure is similar to crypts and swords (extensive).

Thanks, Fresh! Your tank is lovely, even if it has clouds in it. Second question, since you're here, do you just take a pair of scissors to your plants for trimming? Or is there a particular way to do it? (Do you treat them like regular plants even though they're underwater?)

Got an LED light into the 5 gallon Betta tank (got the Betta on Saturday)... put a UV sterlizer into the 16 gallon with the hopes of clearing up my endless algae bloom.

shellyx - did you try any magnesium /epsom salts yet? And Congrats on the new awesome red BN!!! They are quite striking!

Moves some fish stuff around, fed early, just about to do a pwc on the 72G. I found my little fountain pump that I had misplaced but planned to use to empty the tank and not carry those bucket. Still considering getting a new style faucet so I can hook up the Python - even the adapter didn't work.

Thanks, Kwakatoo. It isn't the intake, but the place where the wire leaves the internal filter where I found him. I don't need the extra filtration anyways, it was just so the other tank I'm setting up would cycle a bit faster once I added the filter. Thank you though

Found another batch of guppy fry yesterday. The last lot are all silver/grey. The new babies all have yellow markings. The tank is filling up fast.

Cool! Congrats, can you show a picture of your fry tank? Are they in with the bigger fish?
