I've no idea where people hang out anymore :p My old bookmark apparently no longer exists.

Anyways, I use to be around here a lot, but fell off the map. Still around for those who remember.

Thought I would share a short video, not the best since its from my phone, but thought it was neat that my Angelfish have (after many many attempts) decided not to eat their young :p

Yes that is my 125g. It's going along, not much change. The plants are struggling, but hanging on. Can't seem to find that balance, always fighting with BBA at every turn. The only things doing fantastic are the water sprite, and the moss. Some Java Ferns are going great too. All the crypts though failed, most of the pygmy chain swords, and half the large swords didn't make it. Not sure what their problem was.

I stink at growing Crypts!! They die on me if I look at them wrong! So I feel ya pain there. I have one tank and only one that I can grow them in and that tank usually gets less attention then my others. Soo go figure.

GEO!!!

So good to see you around! Three cheers for protective parenting - I remember that black angel from so long ago. He's so big and pretty now! I hope the babies make it!

There's your journal thread, btw. . . I'll have to go back and look - what lighting are you using now? Working on plans for a 125 now. . .

I use dual T8's. A 48" fixture and a 24" fixture. I tried using only the 48" but that leaves a foot on each side pretty dark and not much will grow there. I was starting to lose floating plants because the filter current always blew them into the corner and they were getting no light.
