Wow thats major growth! I agree with moveing the Kleiner Baer but I would put it in front of the intake on the filter to hide it. It is really looking good!

Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

I have decided to try and do some rescaping week after next. I will get a new pic up this evening but I would like some suggestions if possible. I am also going to go out and try to scrounge up some drift wood...not alot but I think a medium size piece could really help the overall look. I may remove the rock on the left as well if I find some wood. The Kleiner Baer sword is out of control too...it's freaking huge. It is also sending up a flower stalk which is pretty cool. Anyways, not totally sure what to do with it...maybe more centered but off centered just a bit? I want to bring my Java fern up and forward as well. I may thin some stuff out too and stick in my newly setup shrimp tank which is pretty bare at the moment. I am completely up for suggestions....new pic to come this even when lights come on.

Also...some new additions arrived today...Snails are to hopefully help with my ramhorn and pond snail problem and the crayfish are going to be a cool addition to my 75g planted tank. Hoping some breeding takes place with the crayfish. I know there is one sexed pair in the group and three other unsexed so I guess we'll see what happens.

I think crayfish are so cool but won't they eat your fish?

Not these...they are dwarf crayfish and max out at around an inch to inch and a half with very small claws...too small to do any damage even if they wanted to. They are regarded as peaceful and do well in a community tank. Of course if there are shrimp or fish fry in the tank they may to the opportunity to chow on babies, but otherwise...they are safe.

Very cool, do they come in neat colors like the big ones or just the brown?

There are orange ones as well but they are a bit costly. I got these, 5 for $28 shipped. They run about $4-6 to buy each so I am hoping they breed so I can sell some. The orange ones are quite a bit more at $15ish each.
