Congrats on the deal with the crypts! I hope they don't get caught up in that winter storm that headed to the eastern US.

After over a week without contact from the sand people, I'd certainly give them or Amazon a ring. That's just crazy.

They gave a 2 week delivery estimate and today is officially the halfway mark for that and the last day of the shipping estimate. I'm trying to be a good boy and be patient, because I work in retail and I hate complaining customers.

Izzy-Special thank you to you for telling me to order plants and not wait. I would have missed out on some cool plants.

I finally got annoyed enough to write that company about the Tahitian moon sand. That was the only reason I got a response back today, otherwise I think I would have waited forever. Their supplier discontinued it and they canceled my order. Nice of them to take two weeks to figure that out. I just ordered a 20 pound bag. Or rather had a family member with Amazon Prime do it so with any luck it will be here this weekend and I can finally get things moving.

Wow... so glad you did contact them. That's a really crappy thing to do. Just plain bad customer service.

Now let's hope your sand arrives soon!! We want to get this thing moving!! lol!

lol That was quick! The sand is here already. Prime is just awesome it seems! I'll be washing it tonight and should have the new tank set up by this weekend. That means actual new pictures! I am going to miss my fish for the few weeks they are gone though.

Awesome!!! That was really fast! Certainly makes up for the weeks of waiting from that other company. Can't wait for pictures this weekend!!

Amazon Prime is my hero, too - I'd be lost without it. You know you can 'split' an account with other people? I pay next-to-nothing for mine, because I split it with my siblings - we all pay just a little, and we all keep separate accounts under one Prime membership. Good deal.

Can't wait for new pics of the sparkle sand!

Due to some family things I haven't been able to transfer the fish and set up the new tank yet. I'm hoping to get to it soon, but if it ends up having to be done on Tuesday when I'm off then so be it. Sorry to delay the pictures for you guys. I had gotten some crypts in the mail a few days ago. They were still boxed up since I was waiting for the new tank to plant them. Since that hasn't happened yet I put them in my 10 gallon. The C. tonkinensis is really tiny. I mean really, really tiny. We'll see how it does. The C. pontederiifolia is really nice looking. Going to make a great background plant. Hopefully it doesn't melt too much.

The c. pontederiifolia that I got a couple of weeks ago hasn't melted at all! I have read that pontederiifolia seems to not melt as easily as other cryptocoryne species (Not sure how true that is though?). Either way they make nice plants. I actually split mine up and have one in my 10 and 29 gallon.
Anyways, family always comes first and we can wait till you get matters taken care of for pics!
