LOVING these wonderfully happy updates! I'm just thrilled for you! Everything seems to be going great over there *GRINS*
The tanks ALL look lovely! I'm still
swooning over your Badis, AND your Puffer, and now your bitty Cories, too! REALLY nice shots of the new male, he's gorgeous! Hope he does well and comes through QT happy and healthy.
. . . Snails! OMG! Sooooo many snails! You posted in BF, right? Have you put a thread up on TFK? I can't believe you have THREE MORE EGG SACKS!
*shakes head* It's wonderful that you've found a local person to do a swap with, I'm jealous! Do you know what kinds of plants he has?
I'm thrilled to see your algae problems fading away, and sure that the added surface agitation will help - I really doubt that your plants will suffer for it in any way. You might even see stronger growth in a much healthier tank!
I'm SO happy for you, John!!!
P.S. PUPPIES! D'AAAAAAW!
