No worries, non-c. I actually had to pm him about that signature it had me in stitches this morning. If all we talked about was plants in this journal, it'd all be on two pages.

Just wait, it'll be cluttered in no time. Mark's plant is my last addition the blyxa albertii (am I even spelling this right?) and perhaps some repens (hint) in the future. It'll be a ludwigia/sword paradise. With of course, my friend blyxa. I'm trying to get it to look like a garden of sorts. Larger areas of the same plant and not just a hodgepodge of the latest fad. Some people like Tex Gal and Cardinal Tetra can pull off the collectoritis. Me? It just looks like........fill in the blank here yourself. I imagine my great grandma's garden. Goofy? Probably, but that is my current inspiration. Getting back to basics, so to speak. I think she'd be pleased to here I am using dirt in the tank.

Do people even want to hear these anecdotes? Ah, who cares if not. It's easy to skip over and look at the pictures if I bore you....or look elsewhere, right?

Your little red lotus (im assuming) bulb is looking like its making a come back! this will add some awesome red to this already great tank! i like the idea of a garden scape. makes me want to try something like that. now if only i could plant tulip bulbs in my aquarium! im more of an outdoor gardener but the place we live in says im cant create flower beds or a garden... pretty lame in my opinion.

i love that sword. maybe ill try one some day. i failed pretty hard on them in the beginning. it seems as though your BBA has preferences.. i think its being pampered to much.. all these ferts its getting... no wonder it grows where it pleases..

I think your thread is quite entertaining. Oh wait....I got you off topic over there, too. Oh, well. At least I keep you entertained, right?

Well that settles it. To keep you entertained and selling fish here, I'll just keep thinking of random stories for you. For instance, my friends used to give me topics to talk about just to see if I could think of something to say. I know a lot about nothing. Yea, I'm a chatter box. Poor husband. He looks forward to the days I get sick with a sore throat.

The little red lotus was actually a surprise gift from Mac. I'm telling you guys, if this guy ever wants to trade with you, don't hesitate. I felt spoiled opening that box of plants and he recycles!

That sucks that you can't create an outdoor garden, especially if you like to garden. True story - I love daisy flowers....aster, shasta, any of the white ones. So last year, I planted a bunch of daisies and then had to spend a week with my brother while my mom was out of town for surgery. After coming home, I couldn't find one daisy. I was really sad because they were about to bloom when I had left. I ask the old man about it and he just lowered his head and said "I thought those were weeds." I stopped trying to grow flowers after that, lol.

Haha, go back a few posts and see where the daffodils were growing out of the lake we went to. Wouldn't that be awesome?

Funny thing is I keep forgetting to add fertilizers except root tabs. And for the first time, the bba isn't doing so hot. No worries, though! I snapped it up and tossed it into my algae tank. You all are going to love the new tank. I just realized....I'll have to put the blue pearls in quarantine if I ever want to sell them. They are so full of algae, lol.

Thanks! I'm trying to spell it like my accent pronounces it. LOL! I can hardly wait! Mark's going to ship it soon and I just hope it does well for me. It's going in behind the sword on the left.

Men (notice I didn't say boys, non-c) and their humor with bodily functions. . . . Actually after growing up with two older brothers, I could tell you quite a few ornery jokes. They'd get me to say them and I would like a little parrot and get into big trouble. LOL. The best part of your new signature? Now I don't have to see the word m@99ot.

She's still in time out, so no pics. I'm freaking out for the blackies because I have to put her back into the tank and I won't be able to supervise bc. I'll be out of town for a few days

Maybe the time out will help though? Sometimes moving them out of the tank and back in seems to give the hierarchy an upset. We used to separate our cichlids and when they got reintroduced, they seemed to drop in the pecking order for a good week or more. Have fun out of town!

Speaking of aggression, this guy needs to be taught some manners on sharing:





Don't worry, that BBA gravel was moved over safely to the algae tank. And I actually handed this wafer to the little guy and he actually made me smile. I think I am officially in love. By the way, this is Scampi Jr. (named after Chaos' shrimp).

LOL, Chad. At the risk of getting a flash mob.....I really don't like waffles. There. I said it and I feel better. Corncakes, pancakes? Wonderful! Waffles? Nah. I don't like syrup enough. Something about the texture kind of disturbs me, lol. Plus it's cheaper/faster to make pancakes.

Matt - they really are neat shrimp, even if they are sinister looking. I've traded with CT for quite a while now. He's a great guy. Spoils you.

Edit: Yes Amy, this guy is very greedy, lol.
