I'll see if I can catch one later! They're so frikkin' FAST!!! If you capture them as a group, the camera seems to lose the coloration in their fins - but trying to catch one alone is impossible! I'm going to go for the biggest brightest male - he's gorgeous! At least he's stalking one area, so *maybe* I'll get lucky, lol!

John. . . no *mights* about it. I WILL get those floaters to grow! I WILL!!! *shakes fist* I really think that with the mollies and the HOBs out of there, it'll go MUCH better for them :)

Speaking of filters. . . anyone want to tell me the best way/place to put the spray-bar up?

I put mine on the opposite end from the intake on an angle to get it to fit right.

THANK YOU!!! From what you've described in the past, that's what I figured - and how I have it now - but words can be confusing! Thanks for the photo AND the clarification!!!

Don't steal them!!! When they grow out enough I'll send some to you, how 'bout that? I'd HATE to have you arrested for breaking and entering. . . over aquarium plants! Plus, they'd hold them for evidence at trial, and they'd be totally dry and dead by then, I'm sure. *cries for imaginary plants that have been ripped from their home*

Beka. . . the vast majority of the plants in ALL of my tanks are considered low-light, beginner, easy plants. There is NO reason why you can't have them :)
