Good idea! Jodie actually got this shot, it is a frame from a video she made. It's her first fish video. She chose to film rather than being the one getting wet moving the decorations around.

Edit:

Jodie was going to use it as her avatar but she is graciously letting me use it since I'm on more. She says she is the best wife. It's true. And not just because she always wants another fish tank.

Edit: And there is my new avatar.

Hey, that substrate is natural. He's on Mars.

Here is an awesome catfish video:


We moved all the driftwood and ornaments twice and still haven't found the big spotted catfish.

I think he is just staying hidden in an ornament even when we move it. I'm going to stop trying to find him in case I inadvertently stress him out.

Here are the new plants I added to the puffer tanks yesterday.

I added this thing in with the pea puffers:



And I added these two to the amazon puffers:







The two tanks look like this now:






I think we're going to the LFS tomorrow, and if the 220 tests negative for copper, I'm going to buy some big vals for it. I'm also going to get another 3 plants (if they have any left, they go so fast), one for the pea puffers and two for the amazons again. Soon we'll have enough plants in the amazon tank that we can remove the fakes.

Are you aware.... ever been to.... a member of..... OVAS The Ottawa Aquarium Society? Check out the tabs... there is one for Auctions!! Ours in Whitby, the DRAS has monthly meeting and the club members auction off fish and plants all the time. Then there is the big annual auction in May held in Ajax. Later in the day you get plants really cheap!!

I should join, I looked into it before. The giant piece of driftwood in the 220 that I bought used, was purchased by that guy at the auction.

I saw on their site this summer that they had a picnic at a park a 5 minute walk from my house.

Members get a discount at Big Al's, though there is a long list of items that do not qualify for the discount. I'm sure we'll join at some point, though where they hold their meetings is a HUGE pain to get to from here, and who knows if I would ever get up the gumption to actually attend. We lived downtown for years and I hate going back. They used to let anyone use their forums for classifieds but my account doesn't work anymore, I think they switched it to members only.

I really hope they still have some big vals tomorrow for the 220!

Edit: Reading about the OVAS Xmas meeting, it seems they no longer do the mini auctions after each meeting, but not have a swap meet. Could still be good. I'm sure they still have the annual large auction.

Silly 20 minute edit limit. Just adds to double posts.

I meant now, not "not". They do have a swap meet, just not an auction.

Just saw this tool in another thread on site:

Design your Fish Tank | Aquarium Tools

It is a tool to help you design the aquascape for your aquarium. Is aquascape a noun or a verb? Maybe it just helps you aquascape the aquarium.

Anyway, you get my meaning, you can pick different plants, rocks, wood, and move them around the tank without getting wet!! You can rotate and tilt the tank and everything. Awesome! You can size the plants, change their color. I've just started playing with it, but so far it seems pretty versatile.

As a cute bonus, if you move your cursor around the top of the page, the little fish follow it.

I am going to waste WAY too much time on this when Jodie is at work.
