Aww! Ottos are super-cute! Congrats on the new additions! I hope they all make it into the new tank okay - a shoal of 12 will be amazing! :)
I don't blame you for passing on the Kuhli. . . There seems to be something going on with them lately. . . the stripey ones in particular. I've heard several stories of entire batches dying off for no discernible reason - including yours - and a lot of fish shops (around here, anyway) are having trouble getting them in stock. . . whatever it is, it needs to stop! Poor little Kuhli! I need more to get MY shoal up to 12, too!!! I saw some SILVER Kuhli on Aquabid from WetSpot *drool* I want THOSE, too ;)
Bummer about the bio-wheel, hope you got that taken care of. . .
Dwarf Sag is a nice plant, fantastic that yours is doing so well - enough extra to carpet a 29g, eh? Amazing! My Crypt Spirallis are growing like weeds, I'm finding new plants every week! But the DS that you sent me is still just kind of there. . . I'd love to take some Anubias off your hands if you have the lower-light varieties? If you have enough to 'clip' after my wallet rebounds from Christmas we'll talk.
I've never had that plant, and have always wanted some, and if you still have extras, I might have another tank (or four) to pop some Dwarf Sag into, too!
In the meantime. . . where'd those pictures that you promised end up? *demands*
Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!
