Cheers!
I'd love him even more if he'd leave the plant's alone, at least give them time too grow!

What Did You do With Your Tank Today?

http://i.imgur.com/XVS6XnQ.png


I took out a ton of water wisteria from this tank. It was literally 1/3 of the tank- the whole left side. I kept only the few too pieces that were the best condition. The bottom was getting "leggy" like some of the stems do. I actually dried it out then threw it away. Normally I would roak it but it was pretty sad and we had a battle with ich recently and I wouldn't want to risk it.

In that corner I added a compact sword instead. Everyone seems happier having the extra space!


My smaller tank I added IAL a few days ago and it has seemed to help my chilis. Finally seeing some more color

Cherry barbs got a new home last night; CPDs will be picked up on Saturday! In the process of removing the fish the tank got trashed-at least 50% of the plants are uprooted-so I ended up doing a big WC. Put the two new mystery snails in a few hours later. It's nice to actually see what's in the tank now. I liked the mixed community but I'm now going to focus on the furcata and peacocks. To go along with that blue theme I placed a bid on a group of blue pearl shrimp. I also ordered two lots of rocks on eBay. I want some for this tank as well as the Spec 5. I think there are 16 total so that gives me something to work with. Another group of least killies should be here today. I ordered one of those round clamp lights for that tank. Seems a lot of people spray paint them so I'm going to check into that more. And I guess it's finally time to get some shipping boxes and bags now that the weather here seems to be consistently spring-like

Can't wait for everything to get there so we can see!!!



And thanks on the color on the plants comment! It's fairly low light and low tech. Removing the majority of the wisteria helped a lot

If you're looking for manzanita try this site, good pics with dimensions included: manzanita-driftwood.com. I'm waiting to hear back from them about a quote for shipping costs.

Sweet. Thanks! I will give them a try/look

Not specifically looking for manzanita but so far pretty much every piece that looks close to workable for what I want to do has been manzanita
