I dunno...
I know he moved from his apartment into a new house so maybe he's concentrating on that..
I know some of his tanks have been retired after the move...

Been busy with the new house & job. I've been sparsely updating another forum, here's some select photos:


Now sitting on an IKEA shelf @ intersection of my foyer/kitchen/living area. The shelf is better for a 55L but I didn't want to make the effort to start a new tank, so I just threw in 2 wabi kusas to fill the empty space.




Filter boxes are changing a lot, I've mainly been using these to harvest plants then to throw them into my new outdoor 270gallon pond (did it cheap & natural for $80 )


Still have a couple otos.


Mosura SSS, not very high grade.


BTOEs

And answering some old Qs, no CO2, no dosing, just osmocote inserts into substrate (mix of dirt+sand+rocks) every 6 months or so.

Some more pics here (mostly shrimp) starting on page 13, from past few months.

I'll take some more pics tonight.

I've been losing a lot of red. I think the T5HO is getting dimmer.






Everything thrown in the filter box grows weedy. I've been using it to propagate more plants for the pond.
