Hmmm Yeah will have to chase him down and ask!
LoL I can get a net in there or even a small cup. After the 6 weeks are up I had planned on tearing down that tank anyways. The plants and fish will both be going into the 10 gallon. So that's not a issue. Its getting fish that are .5" out!?!?

Heres how the 10 looks now.







I am loving thees new crypts!

Your new crypts do look lovely!!! I don't think your 10 looks too heavily planted. And I think your ! rasbora will agree.

It looks like your floaters have taken off in your 29. Is that bubbler still doing the trick?

I took the bubbler out as it was pushing the plants around too much. I would throttle it down but then it would defeat the purpose altogether.

The floaters in the tank are now Frogbit, water sprite, and hornwort. LoL They are managing but I have to figure out a way to control the surface scum another way. I made a thread discussing it in the aquarium plant section.

Soo I have a small update.... Sorry for the wait!

Not much has changed *other* then me completely redoing my Puffer tank due to my thoughts of it having too much organics and it cause my algae problems.

Sooo here are some really bad pic!

Thanks for the update and pictures of your tanks I think they look very nice and as always a great job, I just loved the video of your Puffer so much he is so totally adorable, I want to come and steal him from you...joking of course
I also enjoyed watching your shrimp swim they are to cute

I was just at my LPS yesterday looking at all the fish, well more like staring at them along with talking to them No Puffers there yet and I guess someone would have to drag me out of there if they ever get any

LoL you can't steal him but you can come and look at him. I have never seen DPs in stores and had to have my LFS order mine. They are neat little fish for sure!

The puffer tank looks great! I hope rearranging it did the trick. You could also try some amano shrimps to help eat away at the algae. Seen any baby red cherry shrimps?

Woo rotala! I have that same species in my 29 gal and it does very well.
