Chubby....cute....LOACHIES! Oh they're so cute! My little black kuhli's are getting kinda chubby too. Well, the girls are, wonder if that means anything other than chubbiness.

Those tanks are so pretty. Just gorgeous. My attempts at planting are still..."Find spot in gravel or sand, bury roots, make sure stays down...watch grow" o-o Serious cave ladyness going on here. xD Oh hey, they do grow, I just don't seem to have a knack for actual landscaping in a tank. Gimme an outdoor garden and it might happen, but tanks seem to be more difficult to get planted in a way that is like what you got going here. lol Which is absolute gorgeousness.

Wait...I thought that's how we're supposed to do it?!!! o.O
Thank you, Sylver - it's the 'watch it grow' that I like best - including chubby loaches! ^__^

Oh indeed. But like...usually mine isn't set...uh, well like yours. You actually put a lot of thought into it, or so it looks unless your random planting actions are just that awesome...I find a place that looks like it has room, and stick it in, make sure it stays healthy and doesn't get all unhappy-like. Usually they do pretty good, but often once they grow in...they look off and scattered randomly, which they are. xD I always used the "It doesn't get put all gardener pretty by nature, it's more natural to just drop it in a random place" excuse for my tanks. Regardless, my fish seem to love it that way, but so long as they have plants to get into and investigate, I'm sure they'd love it if it was set up to be gorgeous too.

Maybe if I ever get a lot of money, I'll hire you to come tankscape for me. :3 Even if I try to think it through, I just don't seem to have a knack for it at all.

Gawd your tanks are pretty. I'm truly in love. <3 And I LOVE that frog, and those loachies. I think my chubby little kuhli's are the coolest things in my tank, I have a thing for loaches and cories, but my grandma always makes mean comments on how "Ugly" they are, and how creepy it makes my tank look with tiny snakes sliding around in them. I just don't see the ugly. I keep telling her not to be mean to my babies or she might make them hide and hurt feelings. T_T Though I suppose I can understand why some people think that way since a lot of folks just don't like the whole slimey, slithery, beady-eyes things, but personally I love them, and snakes, and frogs, and turtles, and eels, and as you know, Bichirs. :3

Yikes! I haven't had a chance to mess with pictures in a while - been busy. Here are some more already-uploaded from last summer. Might as well post them!

A Java fern and some Java moss going from submerged to emersed growth.



The smaller plant on the right had most recently been pulled out of the tank.
the slightly larger one on the left had been dry for longer...



You can see in the image above that the under-water leaves were looking a bit rough,
but the pretty new leaf in the center is happy as can be!
There may have been a Windelov in there too... ? I can't remember! >.<
Both these ferns (and the moss!) are doing well, and live in the terrarium now. ^__^

I would totally come do some heavy lifting to see that tank set up. I may be small, but I'm pretty much sold muscle!

I said heavy lifting! Not something you need a backhoe for!
