Sorry guys and gals.....I've been away on a work trip and didn't have any time to respond back! Stupid work!...
Bob--No worries, you would still be annoying if you hadn't done that. JK!!
You set me up for that one!
Bill--Thank you for the easy one! xD That was a softball! LOL! But you are right....even after this thing is done filling in and looks great, there will be Don with his arms wet to the shoulders tinkering around in it. Someone tell me to "stop!" when we get to that point, please! I'll end up ruining it.
NO REPTILES! I would be Wife-less so fast your head would spin. And at my age, I'm too tired to go out and try to find a new one of those....
Marko--by the time I can offer him buces, I'll have plenty to go around. There are a TON in there; I need shoots, and then I need those shoots to send out shoots. I'll go from having nothing to having 4 dozen ready around the same time.
SpecGrrl--Thank you! Verbal "hugs" and "Fist bumps" are about the best we can do given the distances. Everyone here has been very kind to me, and I try to return that the best I can! Good people!!
hhk12--Thank you for saying something, though! I appreciate it! Feel free to add commentary or criticisms as you wish!
Correna--Well, I thought that I would keep you "current" with the thread, and thought it was well within your grasp to click on the "arrow" to change pages back to the pictures, if you wanted to.
lol! I'm glad that you like it! It's been a big experiment for me, of sorts, and it seems to be going pretty well! Like you, I want those crypts and buces to start filling in too!!! And, I need more emmergent growth from my stems in there to tie everything in a bit better. I probably will be looking at buying a few addition plants that will be able to grow that tall and hold their own above water without becoming "weedy." I'll have to give that some thought, though. I like the Ludwigia alata and Ammannia latifolia for that reason....I'll have to source some additional Hygro lancea stems.
Hey, thanks Fizgig! Love your goldfish tank, man!! That thing is enormous!! Your goldies look like red platys in that thing! Very cool!!
