when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

Nice pictures! If there wasn't so much surface agitation in my 29, I'd take some like that.. my barbs have gotten so used to me hand feeding them that whenever my hand is in there for anything, they won't leave it alone.

Cute pics ;)

I have a whole hoard of guppy fry that will attack my hand if I put it in the tank. It's hilarious!

And I am super-impressed that you can speak english so well after only 2 years!

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )
