It was kinda funny when I looked back through this post. I was all man thats what the tank looked like? I remembered it being a bit empty but had forgotten how empty it really was. Funny how when you see the thing daily you don't realize how much its changed over the last few months. Also the new Nikon camera makes the pictures far more clear than before. The sand dune has basicly gone away but ah well I figure the dwarf Sag will fill that in iin no time. Its to the point where the Italian Val we near combat to keep the runners at bay. Once a week i'm plucking runners to keep them in their desired location I figure if I let them run wild i'd have an entire tank full in a month.
On another note I added Kuhli loaches awhile back and I thought perhaps all had died but randomly I saw one today for the first time in about a month he / she looked healthy larger than it was when we bought it, there were 6 or so in total so there could be more. Unsure really I need a fish locator so I could tell how many were a live if I knew that was the only one i'd get him her it some friends.
