4 now :C
One passed on. He was the one who was acting odd from the start. Seems the process of shipping got to him.
Haha, I have to remove more stuff from my room to make room!
Speaking of giant tanks, I finally took some good video involving Queen again:

She shows up for a bit of this. She is back to her usual self though seemingly much hungrier. She comes out full speed when it's time for the Rainbows to be fed and snaps up anything I give her. Guess it's good she's fully recovered from her ordeal.
The plants are doing so well in this tank now. Those swords, its amazing how big they are compared to when I first got them. They average 1-2 leaves a week. All the crypts have now put out their first bit of regrowth with once leaf each. For the first time Narrow Chain Leaf Sword is actually staying alive for me if that's what it is. You can see it in the middle over by the slowly recovering Water Wisteria.
This tank will not be compete till I get some decent Water Lettuce plants to put to act as floaters! I dream of when I finally have something like that beginning to carpet the top.
Switching gears I took some nice photographs of the 80:
Say hi to a loachbutt! Tiny thing isn't he?
Here we have an exceptionally brave Ghost Shrimp hanging out in the open.
This is an updated frontal view of the tank. I also have two side photos:
