Awesome. She really is great about special orders. And man, the recent renovations are awesome. Can't wait to see what that place is going to look like in a month or two.

I'm trying to get her to let me setup a 150g South American display tank for them. Mr. Ken seems to like the idea but is worried they don't have the room. They are really stepping it up lately for sure. Carrying more and more. Sad to say I probably paid for most of their renovations!!! Lol

That would be awesome! Are some of your breeding projects going to be supplying them with some SA stock?

Yes ma'am. I have red head tapajos almost ready to go and have been bringing convicts on the regular. Everything else is still in the early stages of getting going. Altifrons seem to have paired up but have not spawned as of yet.

So all of those cute little cons have been yours? Can't wait to see the rest! Before long, some of the bettas you see in there might be from me. Just waiting for them to grow out a little. Wish I had tank space for some SAs though. Should be moving soon, and if space allows I will have a fish room, so we'll see.

Speaking of baby bettas, today is "massive water change with a turkey baster" day. I can't wait for these guys to be big enough to evade a syphon hose.

Haven't posted for a couple days...

Got new plants put into my tank! Traded with a member here and have some great new additions to add a little change.

Added the Top Fin boxed/prepackaged plants from Petsmart. Got the Pogostemon Helferi aka Downoi and Staurogyne Repens. Planted some in the 72G and 6.6G Edge to see how the different light with affect them, and in case I kill some I will still have some! lol

Got lots of new plants in the last few weeks. Very excited to get them all going strong.

Yesterday found another pretty healthy package of Downoi at a different store, and a clearance package of Cardinal plant for .25, when I picked up from the shelf the clerk said thank you for saving me (as the voice of the plants)! She said it just drives them crazy the set up they have for the plants/poor display and lighting and how many of them die. So I ended up with two packages of plants for almost the price of one.

Here are a few pics of the plants 72G





Edge 6.6G




Also with the two baby cryptocoryne wendtii florida sunset, I got for $2.00 last month from the lfs
