In other news I finally got my hands on an English Cucumber. That's my favorite kind to put in the tank for the loaches and the snails. It's a seedless variety that sometimes is hard to find but the critters love the seedless soft inner part. Being seedless also means it doesn't clog up my filter or have seeds scattered everywhere in the tank. I'm hoping the itty bitty baby loaches figure out it's food as it's good for them.

He's special all-right. . . I'm honestly AFRAID to watch any of the others! Though. . . this one *was* kind of entertaining in a very weird and gross kind of way!

Well... HE says it does, but like Fox said - he's a little bit special ;) I suspect that only God has the power to resurrect dead fishies. Worth a try though. . . maybe?

HUZZAH for cucumbers! I didn't know there WAS a seedless variety! I'll have to see if I can find any!

Well, I figured if frogs can do it, fish could too!

But yes, searching around it appears that guy is the laughing stock of some reef forums.

I TOLD you - frogs are weird! ;)

Um... getting back on track? Bichir are weird, too! And LOACHES are delightfully silly! Those little un's still doing well, Fox?

Well, I hate to have bad news. There is only one of the little baby yoyo's left. Queen isn't coming out much either so I know what happened to them. That's it though. No more small baby fish ever.

But...that does not mean the two bigger loaches will forever be a small group. I finally managed to talk to a manager at the big fish store and he is going to look into being able to order larger loaches. He's not sure if he can but in a few weeks he has to place the next order and he'll try. If he can he said he'll get "a larger bag, or half a bag?". I think what he means is he will ask for a large group of big ones so he has a good pool for me to choose from.

I'm not sure what it will cost but I'll save up for it.

That said while checking out a fish store I've never been to we found a big bag of eco complete plant substrate (for aquariums). My friend offered to put in for it and we brought it home. So we "Tried" to scoop out areas where the heaviest planting is and lay down the substrate and put sand back over it. That didn't work out too well. So now it looks like my substrate is half oreo. Oh well, my plants should like it :3
