Got a few new plants, an Indian Water Sprite x 2, and three pointy banana, banana plants, young ones...

and the best!!!!!! Cryptocoryne, wendtii 'Florida Sunset', two tiny baby plants for $2.00 total!!!!!! They are about 1-1.5 inches with little tiny leaves about 5 and maybe 6-7, one leaf came off as it got stuck in the Banana plant's bananas.

They had some in a pot in another tank for 14.99, and then these two tiny ones with a metal ring on them, just sitting all lonely by themselves.

Cleaned and added new garnet sand to the 16G bowfront and it looks mysterious and fun! Didn't have time for pics. Have to get up in a few hours for a early shift at work. Booooo!

Shopped for Koi Angels again...pre shopped really. Trying to decide how mine are stacking up with the ones for sale. Mine are pretty darn nice in comparison to MOST.

There are some better... But I want to get a few more before my 4 get too much bigger. I am trying to learn how to sex them. I can only hope I will end up with two pair, the larger two and the smaller two. That would be great. But I think if I bought 4 - 6 more I could get a couple good breeding pairs for my mom!!! Happy Mother's Day, very soon!!!

With that being said, today I swapped out my stage 1 spec filter and replaced charcoal insert with a zeo-carb insert and used original biofilter

I got an aquaclear 110 and have it set up and building up bb to be my chemical filtration/ surface current for my 150g on my 50g and started modifying my 1000g pond pump for aquaponic use with said 150g. Time to start the bottom layer of my SE Asian biotope- yay!!

50% pwc today after changing to a sand substrate over the weekend. Looking great

Nothing too exciting but my aquarium spend has been cut for a few weeks whilst we concentrate on some other things

After over 5 hours battle I've upgraded the house of my fishy friends-- they live now in a beautiful 245 litres of Aquastyle 950T
(My old Aquastyle 850 is up for grabs should anyone in the UK be interested!)

I used the filters and gravel from the previous setting, so there shouldn't be any troubles, but I will keep an eye on the parameters over the next couple of weeks, you know, just in case

Thank you!
I just need to add some tall, not too light-demanding plants to fill up the background . . . Any ideas?
