Amy, I love seeing your post as well. I was about to say "STOP YELLING AT ME AND TAKE OFF THOSE CAPS LOCKS!" Lol. Haha, my shrimp wouldn't touch the stuff. And once I gave them some of that food Mordalphus sent me, they became spoiled very quickly.

hmmmm perhaps i shall have to get some of this miraculous food.... can you hook me up.. which reminds me... i walked into my small town (5000) post office carrying a bag of christmas moss for Dave.. every one was giving me such dirty looks. when i finally go tto the counter my lady behind the counter asked me all snooty like, "what have you got there... its not illegal is it?" so me..being the smart a$$ i am asked if she wanted to smell it... lmao the look on her face!!! priceless.

i explained to her what it was and she seemed to get a little more cheerful after that.. hahaha. i always feel like a drug dealer when i exchange plants with ppl..

Hahahahaha! I know what you mean. My post office now knows me by name from all the RAOKs! Aquariumliam has it. If you like I could send you a few and if you like it, get in contact with him. It doesn't sink immediately, but it's gotten to the point the shrimp get so excited, they all jump on the pellet and pull it down in the water with them. Just send me your address in pm. I am going to the post office on Monday for other people, so it'd be easy to send you some.

I <3 you, too! Aren't we cool since we know what that means? I <3 Karackle for teaching it to me. Well, I am off to drink an Irish coffee sans the coffee and hop into bed! It's nearly 2 am and I am TRYING to make myself get on a normal schedule again.

We'll trade BBA for food. This is excellent! LOL

just read through all 11 pages haha, and i thought i was going to bed an hour ago. i'm very excited for the christmas moss, thank you so much. i really like this tank, i think sara talked me into setting up a shrimp tank the other night. i really want some orange eyed blue tiger shrimp.

i love those white clouds, a friend i used to live with impulse bought them one day, and didn;t like em. while i was at work he put them all in my 29 gallon tank (it was a low tech planted flowerhorn tank then). i came home from work just in time to see the last one being devoured by that mean hungry fish. he thought it was cool, i thought it was a waste...

i do miss that flowerhorn, we kept him in a 180 until my friend brought home some small cichlids and watched two of them get eaten, so my flowerhorn was moved to my tank (he was like 4-5 inches at the time). he then ate the inhabitants of my southeast asian tank. 4 gouramis, 12 tiger barbs, 8 kuhli loaches, a beautiful black betta. i also watched him destroy a 6" jack dempsey once (i just wanted him to have another tank mate, but he said no). i lost him to a week long power outage the week before christmas 2009.

Amy, sweet Amy, I'm feeling quite bad
i just found your thread, I hope you're not mad
I'll have to catch up on all that you've done
but for now I think that this is quite fun
I'm writing this poem especially for you
you were very sad and that was my cue
you thought we were finished with poems today
i hope now you're shouting "hip, hip, hooray"
Amy, sweet Amy, I wrote this for you
I hope that you like it, I really do
and if you want more, dear Amy just ask
I assure you my friend, I am up to the task
now I will finish with these silly words
i hope you enjoy spring flowers and birds
and now I'll go read your journal you see
that is what i'll do if it's up to me
if duty calls and i'm needed in lab
it's possible i'll turn into a crab
but if they leave me to do as I please
i'll finish your journal with lots of ease
then I can comment on your lovely tank
and on this statement you really can bank

read it all! LOVE the tank! And I love the shrimpies, I miss my bamboo shrimp, i had one in my 30g and he was SO COOL to watch when he had his fans out searching for food. I would mix some fry food (powder) with tank water and squirt it near him to make sure he got enough food

Anyway, I like how you've arranged everything so it looks good from all angles but it also looks like totally different tanks from all angles, very cool!

And yes, we're totally awesome for knowing what <3 means

Kara was worried you wouldn't like it. I told her anyone cool enough to use the <3 is cool enough for poetry.

That bamboo shrimp is really cool looking how big do those get?

*shudders* Okay, now you going to have to take videos to desensitize me to bamboo shrimp now that I like Amano shrimp. That's just bordering on creepy size. I've got your package all ready to ship off on Monday, by the way. I figured you can't hurt food but help it by putting it in a dark place, lol.
