Is it even possible that I've never linked you to my thread?!! Thanks for the sweet compliment! I know, it's long - I babble entirely too much. Can't wait to get the 125 *ahem* so I can start a NEW thread ;)
Jen, thank you! Yes. . . my loaches are lunatics. They always have been. . . I think they forgot to give a copy of the manual on loach etiquette to my critters. They're ridiculous. When they're dangling from the top of the tank like that, they're actually foraging through the floating plants in search of leftovers that got trapped up there. The rams know this, and tend to hang around beneath them to catch anything that falls. Sometimes after meals I've caught as many as 8 of 'em up there at once, looking for all the world like party streamers. Cracks me up! Both loach types do it, and no, they're definitely not starving
A couple of them (specific loaches) also enjoy getting all tangled up in the Watersprite - just chillin' out, reverse loach-style.
It's not BUSHY!!!
*pouts* Yah, okay, it could probably stand a good pruning. I just can't bring myself to cut/separate it! You're right, it is
a Cryptocoryne Wendtii - my most favorite
plant of all! It was the first rooted plant I ever bought. I've had it for around a year now. . . I *think* it's supposed to be a red, even though it isn't. In person it's a really gorgeous olive color, *almost* brownish. . . love it! I'll be including it in my photo update, I tried to get some shots, but still have to clear out my computer, lol!
Lympie, it's a deal! You can have my lil' Flipshare, if it's still working by then, as soon as *I* get a new camera with video built-in. Might take a while, tho. *sigh*
LOL! The magic is in the fish, not me! You can actually see in the video, there's at least one place where C.Cat is letting Alice know that she's in the way - but he just shoos her off. They really are pretty sweet and tolerant of each-other. . .so far. They've only just started breeding, though. . . and as a result I've become very aware of just how small the 55g is! Crossing my fingers that things remain peaceful in there, and really looking forward to hooking C.Cat and Liz up with their own place. Can't wait to get actual free-swimming fry from those two!
