I added an Oto tonight. He's doing well and making quick work of the GDA on the glass. That will eventually disappear once the tank matures, correct?

I had a harlequin jump tonight at lights out. They always go crazy at lights out. I'm going to get the ADA glass top for this tank. It will be especially needed because I have some Boraras Brigattae coming in. Anyone know how this will effect my PAR values? Should I run the light without the splash guard since I have a cover, or use the splash guard? I just don't want to see a reduction in par or anything like that because I have the tank balanced and algae free.

Updated FTS:
Looking into ordering some Syngonanthus belem since there is a lot of bright green. Need something darker. Plants are starting to come in and I can finally form better groups.

Nice updated pics, dude! Your groupings are forming nicely. That's mini AR on the left right? I'm about to get some and was advised to grow it in glut rather than co2 to help keep it short. Sounded a little odd to me.

Wow... homecoming! How fun... makes me wish I was in high school again..enjoy it while it lasts. Hope the girl said yes!

Nice board... u go boarding often? I have a Burton VII twin... I haven't gone in years, unfortunately.

Thanks, Bro. No, actually it's AR 'Roseafolia' from Petsmart It looks almost the same if I keep it trimmed shorter. It's a super slow grower, too, so that's nice. That doesn't make much sense to me? I'm dosing 9mls daily of glut just to keep the tank balanced.

Yep, she said yes. Thank god. Haha.

I probably go about 25-30 times a year. So a lot. Haha. I have up basketball for it. That's a Process Flying V. I like it because most of the time I jut ride the big air park and the double black diamonds, but sometimes I get the urge to ride park and the V allows some extra playfulness, while still having stability. I wish I lived out west. The NE is Ice 3/4 of the season.

Tank is looking very nice!


When's your homecoming? Mine was last week, very uneventful at best. Our football team got its butt whooped, LOL. The dance here is usually mobbed by a large crowd of people wanting to flex their wallets (i.e. buying $900 outfits and renting huge limos) so the consensus is, if you don't have a girlfriend forcing you to go, you stay clear Kind of unfortunate, really

Yeah that's really unfortunate. It's pretty laid back here. Everyone goes somewhere for pictures and then to the dance. It's a big crowd, too.

Thanks for both compliments. Haha. Well, here in the NE, you could say I ride on ice. Haha. But most of the time I ride park or just bomb slopes. I've gotten up to 54mph on some slopes.
