Sure!

Not too much going on. Some crypt leaves melted off.

I'll update it soon! Thanks for the reminder.

Yay! Jakes food does it again. These neos didn't REALLY go for pumpkin chips like my CRS do, but they went for Om Nom NOM.

First time they've all fed together.

Really coming along nicely Mark. Once the crypts grow in it will have great symmetry.

Thank you, man. Hope they grow in. I massacred the roots, but when I got them, they had no roots. So I can't get worse than that.

I keep seeing leaves melt, but nothing too bad.

The moss has rebounded nicely.

It actually is perfect for nanos. I'd rate it up to 10 gallons! Zoomed501.

Thanks. I hope these buggers breed for me. I expedited my tank planning and nixed a tank specifically for them.

Nice. Mr. Aqua products are nice I hear.

I definitely keep my tanks on similar budgets.

That is an issue. Hey. Your best idea is to try to sell what you can on here, create a Paypal and start accruing money. Only spend what you make from the hobby.

I should put that into practice
