Wish i could move the 20g to my room. For christmas im gonna set up a 55g in the place of the 20g, maybe then. Added some evaporated water and did a 10% wc.

(Actually last night) trimmed the older leaves from the crypts and dwarf sag in my planted tank that have either BBA or a black form of Staghorn algae. Also trimmed the numerous runners from the broadleaf chain swords. They can be very invasive. 40% WC.

Set up my "chunk of the backyard" tank. It's a normal tank that slopes up to land. I'll have a frog, some newts and/or salamanders, and a school of chili rasboras. It's going to be heavily planted both on and off land. The soil is natural dirt from outside with a few root tabs. I'll post a pic tomorrow or whenever it mostly clears up.

I'm not sure actually. I might literally take a chunk of the backyard literally though. So I would get eastern red-spotted newts, spring peeper frogs, and possibly change the rasboras for nh minnows. IMO that would be really cool. I'd have to check the laws on keeping those species in captivity though.

Lol yes but in a secluded room of which you cannot hear anywhere because it has sound proof doors. Maybe even then I'd get really annoyed by the peeping when I'm looking at my fish... lol.
