On another note...

My L. Aromatica needs a trim. The tips are getting nice color though.

I forgot to say thank you guys for the kind comments! You guys have nice tanks too... 60p club baby!

Anyways... my tank needs a trim and sprucing up a bit. I have to ask myself, why did I put sand in front of the AS? Haha... have to tediously remove the rabbit poop substrate from the sand. Oh well, labor of love.

Here's a picture as of tonight. Just got done killing off the BGA I was getting. I'll do a cleanup this weekend. Anyways, the UG is super lush! S. Repens are growing super compact. I must say, I'm really impressed with using two Sat+ lights!





GSA still needs to be addressed... I'll start the onslaught this weekend as well

Thanks, man. BTW, does it look like it needs a trim or when 'should' I start to thin it out? I know you had a recent catastrophe with your UG. I recall reading somewhere that Tom Barr saying something like you need to pull it out, thin it out, and replant them really deep. I'm not sure how often that needs to be done? I'm thinking maybe after two or three mowings?

Baby Tears in the back left and dwarf baby tears in front of that.

End of the road for this tank, for a bit guys..

Had an apartment fire Friday (while no one was home) due to a faulty circuit or something in the kitchen wall. The sprinklers and fire department managed to contain the fire in the kitchen and rescue my dog, THANK GOD. I arrived on scene to an utter disaster. Water flooded the apartment, black smelly soot EVERYWHERE! I lost a lot of personal belongings. Sucks!

The 2g Pico cube was totaled. The 60P looked okay but I guess the fire fighter must have knocked a fixture into the tank when they threw a tarp over it. All the fish in there were dead... I'm assuming via electrocution. The other tanks (60F and GLA 6g) survived. Had to leave the 60P for the insurance adjuster. I can possibly salvage it after Monday because it "looks" unscathed. Hopefully there's no damage from heat, with relatively close proximity to the kitchen. Worried somewhat about silicone warping or something?

Basically can't touch kitchen and living room stuff. So I took the plants out of 60p (destroyed my scape in the process) and moved the rest of my tanks to our new unit on the other side of the apartment community. Destroyed those scapes too by removing the heavy layout stones in order to move the tanks more safely.

What a mess! I've been scrabbling to RE-set up the 60F and GLA 6g as temporary holding tanks. Might set up another 10g I had in the garage, if need be. Most of the plants look good, just need to re-set these tanks up with lights, filter, and co2 tonight to keep them on life support!

I saved 2 scarlet badis, although they don't look too good. Saved 2 CPDs and my betta. 11 neons, 5 embers, 3 otos, and 4 pygmy corys all died

Here's some horror pictures:
