Thanks!

I actually have three thermometers in the tank so I can monitor environmental changes in the condo. It's in an awkward location and I'm trying to figure out what I can and can't do as far as temp goes before it impacts the tank. Almost have it figured out.

Whoah, update time? Lol.

Can't wait to see how it's progressed. Have any of the Goldens bred yet?

Only have phone pics today.

Rough full tank shot :



Moss grew in like crazy.

Have to weed out the floaters every other day:



Super-low light, no ferts and the E.parkeri are nearly splitting again:




No breeding yet. Not entirely sure they're not all the same gender. But we'll see! Or I could add a couple more. Kinda contemplating adding a couple mischling that I've got.

It's gotta be one of my favorite footprints when it comes to tanks. Definitely want to get another. Or maybe the ADA version.

Almost thinking of replacing my Ebi - which I love lately - with one.

Definitely not another. The new rule is I have to shut something down if I want to bring in a new one.

Tank is looking awesome I definitely love the size. Unfortunately I live in a tiny place and my fiance wouldn't like another tank unless I shut one of mine down that is already going. Never enough room.....

So are they technically goldens or snows? Because some of them look like snows to me. Or do you have a mix of both?

Also, you never posted pics of your trees in the bonsai thread!

They came from Liam as regular grade Goldens and have whitened up quite a bit with my foods and supplements.

Can't post bonsai pictures until they get pruned and look less than janky!

I may need to pick up some of your super shrimp foods sometime in the near future then!

Aww, come on!
