Thank you. Maybe I need to cement the roots on the log somehow. That darn Shark keeps me working on the tank, that is for sure. BRAT!! :)

Hey Inga,

How are the floating anubias doing.

Haven't seen your tanks in a while! I'd love to see some new updated pictures.

Guess what!? I got a Dwarf Gourami too! Looks just like your little guy...kind of...



Hope all is well :D

Oh my goodness he is too cute for words. He looks a LOT like my little Two tone.

I will have to charge up the camera battery and take some more pictures once again. I just removed a bunch of plants. Got rid of the Water sprite as it looked like crap in my tank. That was my second attempt and though it grew a ton, it just looked brown and scrappy. The tank has now been totally taken over by Pennywort on the top and it has sadly cut off the light to the lower plants which are now suffereing. I have been running a lot as of late and been neglecting my tanks other then the frequent large water changes. I need to spend a few hours or days pruning. The Anubias is now rooted in the substate. Now that poor Rainbow has passed on, nobody bothers the Anubias.

Poor Rainbow! Noooo! :( May he/she R.I.P.

At least you don't have to keep tinkering to keep the anubias down.

Chesherca has also had some problems with Water Sprite, interesting. Did they look eaten? That is really weird that it grew but stayed brown. hmm.

I would love to see some pictures when you get a chance to take them. I myself have been quite a bit busy. I need to update the pictures I have taken hahaha.

I thought it was strange how much it grew also considering how it looked. I think the fish nibbled at it a little but not enough to completely trash it, I didn't think. It would have tried to take over the whole top of my tank if given half a chance. Instead, I removed it and now the Pennywort took over. ha ha
