Very nice.

No floating plants?

Thanks Jeff!

There will be floating plants by the end of the week lol.

I have a 5 gallon that is overflowing with Dwarf Water Lettuce. I'm planning on transferring them here because there is so much light.

That is very nice, good aquascape. Floating plants will add the finishing touch.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Holy ! That pleco. He is just too huge. But beautiful music to go with him. And your little BKG made an appearance, too! He does eat like a vacuum cleaner!

Your 75 looks so bare now!!! I'm happy that Jes is going to get a lot. She'll need lots of plants to fill up her 125!

Yea Koi, he is huge. And he poops just as much too lol

I'm in love with my BGK! He's just...too awesome.

Chesh lol you're funny. I just want to see what you do with it :P Like I said just consider it a mothers day present for being such a great mom.

I forgot to bring the floating plants home again....yikes...so I better bring them back tomorrow! I'll take pics when they are put in...although it wont be much of a change because it's only a five gallon full and it's going into a 75.

It doesn't MATTER if it's 5g worth of floaters in a 75g tank. We've gone down this road before. You have the touch - they'll have overtaken the tank in record time, and you'll be pulling out buckets of extras in the blink of an eye!!!

Termie, you're too sweet! I'll get some pics of them in QT for you - that'll have to hold you over until the 125 gets set up! I need to post so many pics to update my thread, it's insane. . .
