Looking back at my tank from over one year ago

I added a couple pictures of what my 43 gallon looks like now. It's fun looking back at it (in the album) from April 2011 and seeing how much it's filled out. I'm loving the jungle look! Check out my album

Very fine work, Gwen.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

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

Sorry Gwen! I had 2 of them once and they both died several months after I got them. It was right after they molted both times not sure? Water conditions were good guess it was their time.

Yeah, I'm done with them. Feel kind of bad for them. Probably not meant for aquarium life. My first one, literally crawled out. I found him dried up, dead. The other two were around for awhile, but both died in less than 6 months.

Spooking them could have been an issue. I read that keeping the Angelicus loaches with them, may not be good, but I never saw them directly bother the shrimp. Perhaps that was it though.
