I'll think about it I've got work to do on the tank once I get the cray out.

Thanks buddy

Thank you very very much! Means a lot seeing as you've got so many nice tanks.

I love the driftwood! It is getting a little mold or fungus right where it leaves the water. And I'm not sure if I should do something about it.

Thoughts?

Thank you I'll continue to modify it to make it as BA as possible.

The cray will be removed, but he will get a new dominion to rule over .

Thanks for the complement. I would suggest you clean that part of the wood with a scotch brits pad. Then attach some moss on it at that point. You should get some growth above & below the water. Looks pretty nice that way. If you look at my 40 journal thread you can see an example. I find my Cherry shrimp like to hang out there.

Very, very, very good idea. I'll also keep a mister around just in case the moss needs misting. I'll use fissidens, as it is hardy.

Another H4N shipment came in today. Got some Hydrocotyle and Fissidens.

Going to plant both in here.

You shouldn't take life to seriously. You'll never get out alive.

I don't know where to put the fissidens, nor how to add it :O.

Very nice! Love the wood.
Lol, the crayfish is a 'clawedfather'!

My adventures in keeping Indostomus crocodilus, the crocodile toothpick fish. AKA armored stickleback, paradox fish, and freshwater pipefish. Care is (to the best of my knowledge) exactly the same as Indostomus paradoxus.

Hey thanks for clocking in nope. Still working on cycling the cray's tank. Just got the filter in and everything.

Should only be a few weeks and I'll get some beauties in there. This should hopefully be worth the wait. I haven't planted my fissidens or Hydrocotyle yet.
