im going to keep my bn pleco and get rid of the cories and cockatoo, and i'm going to be gettin 5 juvie rainbow cichlids for it. i want to go simple with the fish and focus on plants. no more trying to do both. major update within a week or so, possibly two. ive been a terrible planted tank keeper and i need to remedy that, asap.

also trying to swing some oebt's tomorrow for my shrimp tank!
Hey, not been in here in awhile but I like to check on these threads once a week or so. Very sorry to hear about your fish, that really sux! You do a really good job, and you already have your plans, so I know what results will be great. Keep it up buddy and keep us posted on your progress. Congrats on the promotion at work, by the way.

so today i just uprooted my plants and put em in a 5 gal bucket with ym fish and an airstone. i have moved the stand and am getting ready to shim it level. filter cleaning after that, and then getting it all replanted tomorrow after work. i have the rainbow cichlids, some limno aromatica, and hygro pinnatifida being sent to me, also a plant package or two.

after shimming my tank i'm going to be heading out to get some h202 to dip my plants in and to pour over my driftwood. my co2 tank is empty so ill be trying to have it filled tomorrow after work.

well a fellow wv member sent me a package, i have another one coming from an online retailer, plus the limno and the hygro. im trimming up some of my willow hygro to send to someone, and i have a few other plans for tomorrow.

so far i got the stand leveled, put the tank on it, and used a gallon of h202 on my driftwood to kill a massive bba outbreak. the wood is laying in the tub now. i pulled it out of the tub (which has enough water to just cover it all) and slowly poured h2o2 all over it until i went through 4 bottles. i have 2 more bottles to use to dip my plants in.

tomorrow i will be trimming down and planting what i have, redesigning my driftwood, using rubber bands to try and attach some fissidens (thread keeps coming undone and fissidens won;t attach to wood), and hopefully refilling the tank. i may get the plant package from the wv guy tomorrow also, shouldn;t take long to ship a driving distance of 2 hours.
