Here's some of the inhabitants of the tank that started my little dip into madness.

I know what you mean. Thank goodness for digital cameras. I wouldn't be able to take any photos at all if I had to waste film on 99.9% of the photos. Your cories seem to have done a good job of keeping still, though. Good fishies

You'll notice the most in focus shot of the bunch is all their butts.

Subject: Larry LaPrise dead at 93

With all the sadness and trauma going on in the world at the moment, it is worth reflecting on the death of a very important person, which almost went unnoticed last week.

Larry LaPrise, the man that wrote "The Hokey Pokey" died peacefully at the age of 93. The most traumatic part for his family was getting him into the coffin. They put his left leg in. And then the trouble started.

I love the picture you have of platy butts! It's pretty, and it also cracks me up. I have so many pictures of my betta's rear end, it's sad.

Just play around a lil you'll catch full front pic's too one day and less butt

Just a side note seeing the tank now since I just replayed to your plant post....Either your pic there tricks me or you have air stones going with the plants that's not ideal. The air stones will drive out the co2 that the plants need to thrive so they can properly do their job in return and sully air for your fish. So in short: Take the air stone out if you have plants!

No air stones. That's from the filter. I had just done a water change and hadn't topped it off yet. The fish were playing in the bubbles and I stopped to get pictures. They do it every time. They usually do their own thing but during the water changes they race back and forth in a school through the bubbles and current. Is there a reason they would do that?
