Yeah I do like the touch of green they add and they are such a bright green too, so much so when tied to a rock and pearling it is hard to meter a photo and I always have to use some recovery on the highlights.

150EH - interesting. i'd like to try attaching to rock someday, but probably not in this tank. 2xT8's only, and no CO2. and they're suspended nearly a foot off the top of the tank.

bjielsl and orchidman - thanks very much! glad you guys like where I'm going with this

after a couple weeks, the wood seems to be holding up okay. the pfs seems to be getting a little darker in some areas though, not sure what's up with that.

was 15 mins late to work this morning cuz i just had to snap this and drop it into my PSD file before leaving.

O.M.G.
i don't know what to do with this....


I'm a little concerned for the safety of my other angels. there are 11 in the tank, obviously 2 of them are a pair right now. I could probably move 4 into my 56G w/o any problems..hopefully that's enough space for everyone to be happy.

thanks!

right on schedule, wrigglers today. though this morning when i looked at the tank, there was a moment of slight panic as i didn't see any of them. then i noticed it was curious that the parents were still defensive...before noticing they had moved all the eggs!



i have to say, it's a pretty cool experience and feeling to have the opportunity, watching the parents do their thing. from what i've read, i'm pretty fortunate that my parents have been as good as they are. i am not sure if they ate eggs, or if other residents in the tank ate them...but these wrigglers are only maybe half of the eggs that were laid.

admittedly, i'm a little sad that these guys aren't going to get any tlc from me, and therefore aren't likely to make it. i am not going to have the time to spawn bbs for them, etc. bummer!

i have tried raising the fry. have had wigglers to full swimming small small babies but they got out of the trap and got eaten lol
