Yeah that was done right after I took the picture. here's where it sits now, with my hob and some plants (that I decided I don't like after all and will be coming out. Lol). Still no rocks though!

Spent the day yesterday trying to get things picked up far away from home from me. Fire Red baby shrimp, and OEBT shrimp are checked off of the list. They are all doing well.

Had a mishap with my Mystery snails and lost about 27 of them.

Picked up some little starts of new plants from my shrimp trader friends. Have Rotalla Colorata, Two small portions of Christmas Moss, Red needle leaf Ludwigia (probably not quite the right name) Something else I can't recall. And the nano moss I may have previously mentioned, maybe a sparse inch squares worth. Can't recall correct spelling off the top of my head. Hoping it survives, it is a tiny structured moss (not big and wild like Java Moss growth).

Thank you, Shellyx.

Now if I could figure out how to do this all perfectly....
I guess there is some learning which goes along with "doing", even with the best of intentions.

the main reason I mentioned that was I did that placed tank where I liked it filled it than found out I didn't leave room behind for equipment , just to find out its not moving full didn't want you making the mistake I did

going to look great once some rock goes in , can't wait to see it

I've been so busy that I've done a horrible job updating. This poor tank doesn't even have a thread and its been up for a while. I did a water change on it today and a water change on my 55 a few days ago.

Emptied my 125 traded in my fish for store credit. Now have to reseal, drill for sumpfilter, and start my reef build. Added 3 more bolivian rams to my 72 one of which I am about 99% sure is female so I'm hoping I get a pair soon. Also added some scarlet temples and a red lilly. Took out the ugly wisteria.

JMAY,

That is looking good , I always wanted a planted tank but just never had good luck , Everything would just die in like a week ,so I just gave up ,now
I have 2 SW Reef tanks both doing great I just don't understand why my not so green thumb has no problems keeping corals alive but can't keep a simple FW plant alive , It would be nice to see my 2 FW tanks look as nice as my 2 SW tanks
whats your pointers on keeping your plants alive

Jmay, Seaweed, I really like your natural colored gravel. Looks like the color of a real stream bed. Very nice looking tanks.
I had nitrates creep up to 30ppm at last test. I think I went a little overboard on my PPS NO3 dosing. I did my first PWC with my new Python water changer Tues. It was so fast & easy, I went ahead and did another one today to get NO3 back to around 10ppm. Also got the 6 assasin snails in the mail today. I got pond snails from a plant order and lost the battle of picking them out by hand. LOL.
The rummy nose tetras seem to like the extra water change. They're really schooling back and forth, "showing off". My biggest female Julie Cory "Larrette" has turned into a little love machine. She's spawning with Curley again for the 4th time in six weeks. Jeees! I thought I raised that girl better than that! LOL.
Life & Luck All, OS.
