Not much tannins coming off of it either, it looks like I'm getting off easy this time! I still have some small pieces that have been soaking for a couple weeks and are still floating. Going to drop them in to boil again with this piece.

Would of loved to have seen his face! I was lucky i got a good piece of bogwood with Anubias attached from ebay it had been soaking for 3 months so it saved me the trouble. Good luck with yours

Geez whatta day! Aclimated new betta (Got up early to catch the mail)....PWC 10 gal #1, Cycling 10gal #2, then when it was all good, catching old fish, and plants for new tank from old. Little buggers is fast! The plants that is! Fish drove my nuts actually, they destroyed the planted tank, which then had to be fixed, when they ran from the net. Now, I am off to work to get a break!

I might go looking for more harliuqun Rasboras. I found them locally last year and picked up 6. I lost one awhile ago and want to fill out the group more, they are so pretty! But I can never find any...

Setting up our 10g for the crawfish/crayfish that are supposed to be in this week sometime.. the hubby picked his new decor n we ended up bringing home coconut shell huts and possibly gonna get a shack (reminds me of guilligans island) just glad he didnt want neon sand or gravel or plants.. lol i prefer the more natural but its his tank tryin not to take it over.. Got our little cichlids in the 20g growing still they seem to be enjoying exploring hoping it doesnt take too long to get them to the big tank just need about 2 inches bigger . Doing pwc on all running tanks and mayb some rescaping while im at it.. my water changer came in today just in time...
