I did a rescape of my Cube tank today, and mixed up the decorations I have in with Buck. Took out the plastic grass tunnel and replaced it with a small cichlid cave, 5 inches diameter and 7 inches tall I am guesstimating...Looks something like this:

I rearranged the gravel I got in there so it slopes from the left side down to the right to add some variation...I've found that Buck likes it when I mess around with even stuff like that.

Oh, I also managed to make a quick trip to a LFS place and grabbed a single portion of Duckweed. I really like the looks of most water plants and I figured what better way to start my entrance into trying that out then with a weed...I'm liking the look of it so far and I think Buck is liking the addition as well. Here is hoping my Black Thumb of Gardening Doom doesn't extend to killing water plants too.

LOL, you can't ignore that!!!

~~~

Spent a small amount of time grabbing a few foods from the lfs during other house errands (and getting my dog his shots). Instead of ordering them, was good timing as I got a bunch of bonus bucks or whatever they call them credited - got all but 2.50 covered - 3 $8 packages for $2.50, including tax. Woot!

Emailed my shrimp guy last night - still waiting for the next message for the exact quality I would be getting or if they would have the special ones in about 6 weeks which is how long Amazonia takes to finish leeching ammonia, give or take a week.

Was doing a water change yesterday on the 20-long when I noticed several Malaysian trumpet snails making their way through the eco-complete. From the size of the shells, they'd been there a while, too. Shows how observant I am: I'd *never* noticed them before.
