Hmm... I'll certainly do that later on this week when I can get over to Petco. Hopefully that will help. I know removing a lot of the floaters helped the remaining crypts put on a new leaf. Maybe a new bulb will help them explode back!

Now. This tank is still a challenge to photograph. Nothing. Stays. Still. But I have more settings on my new camera. Hopefully I'll find one that works well and get some better pictures. For now, I give you the current state of the tank. I got a new light and everything seemed to like that. Now I just need to get some more crypts to fill in that hole.

That's actually subwassertang. Sanguinefox gave it to me along with some moss. It's done great right there. I love the way it looks!

Wow, this tank is still looking awesome! keep it up!

540L/140G - 'Tidal Jungle' (Crabs) | 254L/67g - 'Backwater Pool' (Fish/Snails) | 96L/25G - ''Twisted Minds" (Fish/Snails)

I've never had any problems with 'Impulse Buying'. They're just animals that I forgot I had planned to get.

Izzy the tank still looks good! Even if your crypts melted. Hopefully with the new light you can grow some more.

Well it looks like the video isn't going to be done tonight. I was singing in the background and didn't realize this until too late. Don't want to kill you guys, so I have to edit out the sound.

Anyways, I was playing around with the settings on my camera, and I think I'm finally getting the hang of it. The tank got a MAJOR trim today so a lot more light was coming in which always makes for better pictures. I've also added some new plants. There are two baby C. lutea and a (not so baby) red lotus in there courtesy of Jes and her amazing green hands. There have also been some changes to the fish. I lost two tetra a month or so apart and my shy female gourami eventually succumbed to the bullying of the larger one. Nothing I did seemed to help :(



And one AMAZING shot I got of Sturgeon the Farlowella. (Yes that is his name). He's the only thing in the damn tank that stands still enough to get a good picture.
