Beer always belongs in a glass.

You should mount the water filter reactor and use straight barbs.

BTW, I love the wood. If I didn't have a nap scheduled tomorrow I would come steal it.

I have the bracket and I have the straight barbs ready to go. What I kind of liked about keeping it on the floor was that its really easy to pull out and clean. Two quick connects, detach CO2 line and its out. On the bracket means I need to unscrew it. Booooooo. I would procrastinate cleaning it til it was black mucky brown inside. LOL.

I have tons more wood. Sad. Still always looking to buy more. You can never have enough!

Just use the filter wrench... It's super easy. And they never need to cleaning. I've only opened mine once in fivish months.

I am that way with rocks. And co2 parts. My wife actually cut me off from more co2 parts.... The double stage double needle valve reg crossed the line, I guess.

You need some of my "februaryfest" I just brewed for inspiration... Or black lager. Or chocolate milk stout.

Wow. I'm Thirsty. New pics!

Send me beer! Can we do that??

You know what! I found that dang wrench last weekend! Not a bad idea, maybe that's what I will do. Ironically, I bought two of these things, so I can prep the other one and just swap them out. Maybe this weekend if I am motivated.

Pictures will come in a few days. Things are a bit funky right now. Some of the crypts are already wilting so there is nonsense all over the tank already. The narrow leaf needs to be organized a little (maybe thinned a bit more).

Maybe next week or so.

I need fish ideas people!!!

Those are sharp looking! Do you have these? Do you know if they will school well?

fish idea: What about a school of rasboras and a few rainbows and maybe some killis?

I've had von rios - they are some of the most colorful tetras I know of. they school about as well as other high bodied tetras. they are quite a bit smaller than black skirt tetras, like 1/2 the size.

I like this! Maybe Bleeding Heart and Lemon Tetra?

How many to get though is the real question. They can be up to an 1.5-2 inches big.


Was even considering Brass Tetras. I had those a long time ago and really liked them.

Glenn, I think you need a school of cories with whatever else you choose. Just because they are a favorite of mine and I think they'd look awesome in that tank. Maybe you should change your title to "Why Not Guinness?"

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

LOL!

Cories were kind of implicitly going in there. Just a small shoal though. Making sure they eat right is not always easy in a highly planted tank. These I will most likely get at the auction. I will find something that peeks my interest and totally go dork auction crazy on it.

The tetras though may not be something that is common at the auction I am going to, but you never know.
