So after getting some dwarf chain sword instead of pygmy chain sword yesterday (which i was very sad about). I bought a bunch of the dwarf anyway and planted it between 2 tanks. I noticed a hairline crack in a thermometer i bought a couple of days previously and removed it. Tapped the botttom very gently and it disintegrated so the removal was timely.

Today my Pygmy Chain Sword came in. I celebrated by also buying the smallest Anubias they had there, got them all home and planted the pygmy sword which i planned to put in my tank as the first plant. Opened the Anubias bag later and it had 2 plants in the 1 package 2 for one deals are sexy in my books so i found a rock to tie one of them to and left the other floating for the moment.

Side thought, fishing line is not fun to tie things down with.

Very happy with the look of the PCS in the foreground. The light green catches the light really well. I just hope my lights support it. My tank is starting to look nice. I might grab a bunch of wisteria to add contrasting shape then i pretty much have my space filled until i decide on some specific lpants i want and upgrade my lighting.

Next step is moving from Comets to something that will suit my 20g tanks better. I really like my big comet though. He eats greens and fruit out of my hand now and brushes my arm like a cat whenever i put my arm in the water. He needs and deserves a bigger tank or a pond but he's such a friendly fish that i don't want to give him up.
Get a bigger tank or a pond! I'm gutted about fish I let go! (Re-homed)
You will be well pleased with a big tank or pond, I vote that!

My female angelfish laid eggs with no other angelfish today. Lol she's so mean to the tank mates now. I'm going to upgrade soon so I can get her a male to house alone in the twenty for mating.

I have plenty of space for a 75G tank for him in my spare room. I'm thinking of making a DIY plywood and perspex tank for him. I don't own my house though so can't build a pond unless i can devise some way to make one i can drain and move with me. It gets pretty cold in my neck of the woods too. An outdoor pond would come close to freezing solid up here without some method of heating. He's probably the friendliest Comet i've ever owned though so I do want to keep him pretty badly. I'm exploring all options. I'll make a thread when i find a solution to this issue.
