Lovin' the new additions!
Java fern 'windelov' is one of my faves, I started with just a small plant, like one of the ones you have now - and boy! For a slow-grower, it has grown a TON in the last year, the rhizome is longer than my hand (and that in suuuuuper low light, and not counting the little baby ferns I've collected!) It looks really pretty once it settles in and fills out a bit, all those little frondies *luffs ferns*. ALSO a huge fan of all things Nymphaea (and really, how could you NOT be?!) *swoons for lotus* I hope ALL those pretty plants do well for you (and the fishies, too!)!
Three cheers for FORKS! Don't listen to JDM - it's a part of the aquascape, neh?!! >.< The fork stays, I love it!
I'm with you guys - I always 'plant' my rocks and wood. lol. Such funny things we say around here!
Did we ever get pictures of Halloween Horror Night?!! T__T YOU PROMISED! If no pics, I'll settle for being told you had a fantastic time! ^_^
Keep up the good work! Your tank is SHINY!
So glad you finally popped in! I was beginning to think you fell off the face of the earth. lololol
The new plants are doing excellently! The Anubias has already given me a new leaf and it's in the process of popping up another one! The lotus has already given me 2 new leafs and a 3rd is popping up as well. The leafs it originally had seem to be shedding off. I'm assuming that's part of it settling into it's new environment. And the Willow is staying alive. It doesn't appear to have grown or shrunk in size. I haven't seen it's rhizome change at all, so I'll take it as it is still settling in.
I'm certain JMD is just messing with my forks ;) They're set to be a permanent part of the aquascape
I did, in fact, get pictures of HHNs. I didn't get much 'cause I was too busy getting spooked. lol Many many people were flashing their cameras at the Scarers running around in Scare Zones, their make up is awesome, but I feel it to be rude to suddenly flash them with a light in a really dark area! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=1a5ca1040a
I wasn't too impressed with the Walking Dead haunted house, it was a lot smaller than the other houses and there was only 2 things in the house was relative to the TV series. All the other houses were OK, not great, but OK. Cabin in the Woods was shut down. It was opened when we came in, but when we came back to it, it was closed and remained closed the rest of the night.
Me and my BFF do yearly "paybacks" at HHN. Last time we went, I was drug through the Chucky house and I wasn't very happy about that. This year, I drug her onto the Rocket ride. Which has you go STRAIGHT up and drops you straight down, it's really fast and gets me going :D We went on the simulator rides that were open too, 3 of which had technical issues half way through, but we got free fast passes to rerun it later and they worked fine later.
And of course we watched Bill n Ted's, was funny xD
Had Jello shooters, which has an odd plastic taste to me, but BFF liked it and we shared a huge mixed drink.
