They are easy to fall in love with but difficult to meet the care requirements. They need at least 75 gallons plus even for the smallest species. They also limit your fish options due to their predator nature. That said thank you :3

Sang, I'll let you know when I get a paypal. I'm still interested in that riccia.
They were the thing that got me started into fish keeping in a serious way and that makes them close to my heart. Plus it's just like having snakes again :3
Just send me a note when you are ready.

You did a good job in fixing that light! :) I still haven't really messed with custom lighting yet (like wiring and stuff).
So now you have a canister and an HOB filter for the big monster. That water is gonna be pristine lol
The problem is when plants do too well in a small tank. You start running out of space for your fish XD
I am hoping they will take off just as well in the tank they went to. Soon I'm going to top the longest Ludwegia bit and put the stem down. Got to keep them short.
It's not really a custom light. It's what came with the 20 gallon that we originally bought a few years ago. Problem is it's old, the light never got replaced since it was bought and right before I got the next tank the starter began going bad. Thankfully these are things that are easily swapped out. Starter itself isn't expensive either.
Yeah I'm hoping soo XD
Sure it will do even better when I have a good mix of media in the canister instead of making do with what I've got. Down the road (probably around X-mas) I will get a second bigger canister (currently looking at something someone linked me from another site). I hate how much noise that HOB makes and once I can swap that out the big tank will be virtually silent. :3
