It's been rainy and windy for days here, so I was able to collect a lot of nice dead sticks that had fallen from the trees for the tank, finally put them in today after soaking them.

I'm so sorry about LionHeart *cries* . . . really glad that she got to live her last days in a beautiful tank with plenty of room, and an owner like you to take such good care of her. *hugs*

Your tank looks TOTALLY different from the last time I saw it! I haven't had much of a chance to keep up with things lately - I miss you, AND your tank!!! It's beautiful, those swords are making me so happy right now - and I love the new sticks (HAD to giggle as I typed the words 'new sticks' such a tank geek, lol) - your tank is always so much fun! How are the rassies doing? Are there babies still? Super excited for fry - always proud of you for doing such a great job in keeping your fish happy. *grins*

You guys HAVE been getting a lot of rain O.O I hope it's finally slowing for you, and you aren't in one of the areas that's been declared a disaster area? *worries*

No, but I had a decent amount of plants that I added, plus I kept the old driftwood wet and the filter media wet during the process.

No, I haven't seen any more babies :( I keep meaning to pick up a mesh breeder box from the LFS, to have on hand in case I see fry again.

The rassies have all colored up wonderfully, and they all eat from my fingers. I'm thinking of adding 6 more, but then I'm not sure if I would over load the tank by adding 5 loaches.

No, we've been fine, the worst damage has been falling branches but nothing too bad. I've been itching to get down to the lake to see how much it's risen and if I can find any new plants. Last time I went it was solid cattails.

So, I've been working on this for the past, oh, 2 months? I turned the 20 gallon long into a riparium. I'm pretty happy with the result, still waiting for plants to fill in and open up (especially the one close to the left, with the large round leaves. It's new though, in a few days it'll re-orient itself I hope)

Tank inhabitants are MTS, pond, and ramshorn snails. I also moved the new baby betta over there (either temporarily or permanently, depends on how she likes it) from the ten to help combat the planaria and whatever those little mite/bug things are. She really likes to snack on them. Cleaned the whole ten gallon tank of them in less than a week, and there were hundreds.

The water is really shallow though, maybe 4 or 5 inches deep at the most. I'm having trouble finding aquatic plants that can manage in that water, that won't grow out too far. I'm looking for smaller crypts to fill it in.

Oh, and the sand is Black Diamond Blasting sand, fine grit. I really like it, although it's a bit more 'sparkly' than I had hoped.

Love the look, nice job. I wanted to do something like that but a second tank at home isn't an option now.

It looks really awesome jen!! nice! I took the leap today and changed the substrate in my puffer tank. It was way easier than I anticipated and only took about an hour from start to finish. I went with the black eco complete. I have a thread with a pic. Check it out. :)

Updated shots of the Riparium. Sorry for the cloudiness, just moved some stuff around. Those stems in the corner are form the lake.
