Once that sword grows it would look great in the middle behind the driftwood.

And I'd move the moss ball forward.

An aside: just posted an RAOK in the classifieds

Yea I've had this tank for about 7 years so I got some good use out of it. And I didn't pay for it so that makes it a little easier to swallow. Got it on even trade for a 55 I had because the people were moving and needed to downsize

I did a large w/c on my 15 in preparation for a 4-day weekend away. I've decided to let the fish go without food during that time - I've heard so many horror stories about auto-feeders gone bad. I also rearranged stuff and discovered that my lights don't work on the timer - they turn off, but only the red LEDs come back on. This is annoying. Yay extra lights though.

Been having troubles with my filter flow - the fish hate the spray bar turned upward, but you should see the junk that gets blown around! And turned any other way, there's just not enough movement to keep the tank clean. Clearly I needed to change something. I decided to move the intake and outflow to the same side and remove the spray bar altogether. The difference is amazing. It's great circulation but not enough to bother anyone. And the tank was clear w/in 15 minutes of the w/c. Yay!

I'm also anubias-challenged. Supposedly there are ways to tie them to rocks, but the method eludes me. Instead, I bought some small oak dowels from the hardware store and glued them in an X. Then I tied the plants to that (sooo much easier) and buried it in the substrate, except the crown, of course.

Finally, I stared at both my tanks. I can't plant the 55g because I'll be away more than home for the next 2 weeks. And I wanted to add some neon tetras to the 15, but can't for the same reason. So I must wait. I hate waiting.

My fish went 7 days without food last summer. They'll be fine!
