Ok so as of about 3pm i was completely done setting up the system.

List of things done today (more for my reference):
- hoses changed from black to clear PVC braided
- CO2 reactor plumbed into the filtration system
- 5# CO2 tank and PH controler attached to filtration system
- Removed airline from middle of tank
- 50% PWC
- trimmed plants
- Removed the Amazon sword that was in the rear middle of tank
- got a new split lid to avoid any future Free Willy reenactments

They absolutely do! it's funny to watch the bigger fish try to navigate through the jungle...most have stopped trying now.

My Hydor just got here! Time to figure out how to install it without getting water everywhere...

Oh geez, good luck with that! Try not to get too wet :| You can take the ugly heater out of the tank now and clear it up a bit

Thats just 32 newborns, there are still about 15 in the main tank and 18 in the fry tank.

I already sold about 4 of them....that just leaves erm... a never ending supply!!
