Thanks gals! Working on updates. . .there's so much, so much. . .I have to update on. It's gonna be hard to get through it all! I have to get some new tankshots - even though I swear this tank always looks the same!

Sylver, thanks for the compliments! I can't wait to get my Kindy thread updated for you - I know you love your livebearers ^.^ I think you'll like to see what's it's evolved into since the last update!

In the video I think I was feeding baby brine shrimp. They love the stuff, of course, and you know how good loaches are at finding food. Between them and John's snails, that tank stays sparkling clean! It's funny, I've had them in there for months, but I still second-guessing myself - I have NO IDEA how much or little food to feed 27 tiny loachlings!!! Especially when it's something so invisible-small like brine, but I guess I'm doing okay. They all seem happy and healthy. Wish I could get a head count on them, though! Loaches are great at getting into all the cracks and crannies to find every last bit of food, so you're right - it IS fun to give them something to search for. I just love how they come out of NOWHERE and take over the whole tank. SO. MUCH. SQUIRMY. CUTENESS!!! *SWOOOOOONS*

Boxer! Sounds like you've been going through a lil' bit of a tough time over there *hugs* Me, too. . . Glad to hear that everything is healthy in there again. You might have noticed that I found your old journal thread the other day *giggle* I'd love to see you update it with some pictures of what the tank looks like now - and the babies that live there! C'mon. . . pleeeeease!!! *puppyboxerdogfacebegging*

Fun reading, but I think your thread is too short, it's "only" 83 pages!
I've purchased ebooks shorter than this thread

How're your plants doing?

18 species/varieties of fish, 15 species/varieties of plants - The fish are finally ahead of the plants!
*560 gallons (2120 liters) in 5 tanks -> you do the math.

Dave. . . *giggle* Yaah, I'm a bit chatty! But no worries, it's *ALMOST* time to start a new thread dedicated to Becoming 3.0, new and improved and in 125g of water. Not *quite* there yet, but working on it! Plants are doing great - provided they aren't stem plants, that is. ^.^ I'm going to try to get pictures of the plant grow out tanks and buckets up tonight - I'm just about ready for the 125 plant-wise. . . I think (can't have TOO many plants, neh?!! NEED MORE!!!) just have to get the REST of everything together first! Still flip-flopping between setting it up right now, or waiting a few more months and doing a DIY stand. I'm getting impatient, but think I'll be happier with a diy - even if it isn't shiny and pretty :)

Glad you liked my video, Termie!!! That's the 10g QT tank filled with the dwarf loaches - they're SO cute! I can't wait to get them all together in one tank. It's going to be so much fun to have a loach shoal like that in such a big tank. I'll have to add to the numbers of the Pangio Kuhli, too - finally found those again, so hooray for that! I WISH I HAD HD QUALITY!!! I would even settle for a slightly better crappy video camera, lol, but it is what it is! At least you get the idea ;) I'll stick to photographs for now. heehee

Thanks, everyone, for the encouragement and kind words. Been an insanely busy spring/summer around here! Hoping I can get this thread caught up soon!
