I like the simplicity of your tank. Taller plants in the back and shorter ones in the front would look good.

Checked levels on both tanks. Planted some of the wisteria that was floating to grow roots. Fed Fawkes. Stared at Fawkes dragging around the floating plants for an hour. Cleaned off some calcium build up.

Created a diy co2 system for my 20H, did 60% pwc on 55g, topped off 5g, and nothing to 40B

Hi 25% water change on me planted tank,got the filters up and running on me new six foot planted tank,but still cannot start 'cycling' as the heaters still haven't turned up:( still got to finalise what plants and fish are going in there? Rescued a shrimp from the new tank as it got through the pipe in which i was transferring some water over to the six footer:eek: poor thing talk about shaken and stirred:eek: but it was OK:thumb:

When it turns 50 degrees here, everyone breaks out their parkas. Lol. And when a small flurry of snow falls from the sky, town is shut down! Have a fun ride!

Yeah I live in middle Tennessee we don't see bad winters often

Well today was a rough one.. came home n saw my gbr had a few lil nips outta his tail.. then i figured thats why my female betta is hiding .. then i noticed i had fish missin the hubby said he got rid of the problem before his betta died so i no longer have 5 red minor tetras.. :( he really likes the gbr too so im sure that helped make his mind up . I hate it though
