I'm thankful it was a slow leak and only leaked about 3 gallons in a bucket that I had placed under the main leak. It was a 45 corner tank and I am never catching khuil loaches again ,little acrobats

Wow, beautiful.

I have Bacopa australis that needs constant trimming and grows two for one. I sometimes think a better name for bacopa species would be the hydra plant, lol.

Yea, I was lucky. Catching khulis should be an Olympic sport. I upgraded my tank a few times and I swear they learned from that
