Kindest Regards,

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

55 gallon, 44 gallon, one 20 gallon tank, three 10 gallon tanks, and a 2.5 gallon all with real plants.

I have MTS and there is no cure.

nothing to lose by trying. :)

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.

Well i got her in the medicated and salted tank... and she looks a hell of a lot worse, im not sure if her condition has been deteriorating since i left, or if she just plain looks horrible when i can get a good look at her. Im thinking she'll be dead by dawn

Got those plants today. Yeah I have two different lights on each side... One's a red spectrum and ones a blue, I wasn't sure which I'd like better so I bought both, but I've decided I like the blue a lot more it makes some of my male guppies look gorgeous.

It looks nice I really like your piece of driftwood. I am not sure if the light you have is good for plants as I am not sure what you mean by the blue. How long have you had plants in the tank?

Its a plants light : ) but theres a red spectrum and a blue spectrum both of which plants can use and blah blah blah i forget all the details anymore, but the red doesnt seem to do as well as the blue even for plants. Ive had plants since i set it up, and had plants in it before it got all messed up and i had to start all over so...... over a year
