So keep your eyes open for some other interesting options, even contacting some landscapers who pull out young trees and replace them, you never know, LOL. Even home depots will take back dead trees, you could always keep your eyes open there too, just clean it really well. Since I didn't know of its origins, just soaked for a very long time and changed the water frequently, and scrubbed it very well several times.

It is the stumpy, spiky piece in between the outer two smoother pieces, at the center. Free & cool!
Looks great, sooooooo much DW and plants!!!

Lol. Not really they were all laying flat along the bottom and i pushed them to one side to give the chaeto more moving room. I do however have a decor scull in my sump from my old fw days. Its covered in coraline and fan worms. Why not?

Just a refugium in my sump. Has live rock and chaetomotpha algae as nutrient export. Nothing fancy by no means.

Started the cleaning of all tanks.

From the 2.5G - Moved two Rili shrimp to my Chi tank and one Blue Velvet Shrimp that grew up and now looks perfect moved to the 12G Edge with the rest of the BVs. Took out and cleaned everything in the tank, rinsed the substrate, removed the RH snails rocks and plants and replanted for the soon to be new owner. Moved a couple little plants from the 16G over to the 2.5G so it would look nice.

Started moving plants from the 16G to other tanks. This tank will also be shut down unless I decide to keep it up for a QT, although I have a 5G I could use and not have to keep up all the time.

Moved some Petrified Wood stones into the 37G Koi Angel tank.

Getting ready to sift out all the MTS snails out of the substrate to pass on to someone else. Need to clean it out too.

Since it is Arctic cold here right now, I am trying to focus on the smaller tanks first so I can dump the water in the tub.

Responded to a ad from someone saying they were moving and had free fish, and to come get them before they flushed them!!!!! dumb people! Haven't heard back yet.

Added a couple small plants in my Chi 5G tank.

Found a Edge Tank for sale for 40. but I am trying to reduce my number of tanks...debating this situation in my rational mind, wanting run and grab it for my aquatic adventure mind, lol...







Posted a note to some one who was interested in my Aqueon 2.5G mini bowfront.
