As far as tanks go, they are pricey, but the 60-P really isn't that bad at $120...as long as you don't have to pay shipping.

However, GLA has rimless tanks and Orlando seems to have the shipping worked out pretty well.

Jeffery, nice to see you setting up a new tank. We just had a meet at AFA today and lots of people went to Justin's afterward.

Jeff,

Will you take a closer shot when you get a chance? The pics are too small for my bad eyes to see much.

Thanks,
Phil

Absolutely. I've got some HC floating in it right now. I should be able to get that planted today, and then a good FTS will be in order.

Well, I took some shots. My photoshop seems to be corrupted, so, no decent editing for you [said in strong soup nazi accent]






Major plans for the scape include removing the stems behind the japonica as soon as the cycle is done and letting the HC fill in.


Got in my 2217. Man, is that thing a beast or what.


And I installed a light in the stand, so no more crawling around in the dark.

Brilliant idea. Now why didn't I think of that when I saw those in {my 2nd trip to Target this week? Gotta go back... *sigh* I hate shopping during the holidays...}

I love that little stump. This is going to be a really nice tank.

Where are you finding Parotocinclis? We caught a few in Bolivia... Gary will be so jealous if I tell him you found some in the US, he can't ever find them in Canada HA!

I got 4 wild caught at the Atlanta Area Aquarium Association Fall auction. There were 8 there, wish I'd outbid the other guy for all 8. As is I got them for a steal at $4/each.

I'm hoping they'll be more at the spring auction, but I doubt it.

I was pretty amazed. Talk about a great nano fish, the eppelyi is maxed out at about 5/8"

Floating in the upper right corner is some(a lot) of left over HC. I may plant it in this tank, or hold onto it for the 120(doubtful). Either way, it floats well and loves growing at the top of the tank, so for now, there it stays.

You should see if you can get it to flower, that'll be worth some decent HAP points.
