So ive noticed with the current scape, the male agassizi doesn't chase the females away when they come out to swim around. i'm not sure whats so different about this scape that he is doing that but i like it, the females are fun to watch swim around in the current.

yesterday i spent a little time working on the 40b that everyone is getting transferred into.

i have given up on my buddy with the rock, and am just going to make something work. i have a bunch of large flat rocks i am going piece together and make a large flat area. also gonna stop by a couple granite stores and see what they might be able to do for me....


and my light came in the other day!!!! i love it, its a Current LED+. i ordered my sand yesterday, so as soon as it comes in i can throw it in, put the rocks in, lay my PVC and start moving fish!!!!

thanks hilde! that tank is amazing....i don't think i have the paitence for something like that, but damn that is amazing.


here is the rock i picked up yesterday.

i'm gonna put a little crate under it to get up above the substrate a little, so the sand doesn't blow around the tank all day.
