So this weekend I will go wood shopping. I am so excited :3
I apologize that updates have been so scarce and that I've been kind of...not around. Been busy. I did finally get video of Queen actually swimming around and I did so with the big Camera.

This has got to be some of the best video yet. She allowed me to come right up to the tank and video-capture while following her. The moment and camera didn't bother her at all. All in all this is making me a very happy person.
Also a small update, this is week 4 of the 20 gallon long running as a planted tank: [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1DC_8AJ9Jek]20 Gallon: Week 4 - YouTube[/ame]
It's looking pretty good. The riccia is still going nuts, the ludwegia repens is doing nicely after I topped them, and I've got a plant growing in the riccia mat that I don't know how got there but I'll let it grow out and then pull it out (and then plant it properly).
The soft feathery looking this apparantly is this: Aquatic Plants for Freshwater Aquariums: Myrio - Red
Don't ask me how it got there, I don't know D:
Also a decent picture of the giant riccia mat:
