Hey Newkid! I thought I was the youngest on this forum, but then I noticed you are the same age as me! Lol, I feel the same way about setting up equipment. Great to meet you.

supa, that tank is going to look very lush once the plants fill out! Where did you get that glosso? 6th Ave. has it sometimes, but usually the bottom leaves are brown.

I bought the glosso at nippon on geary. No brown on them at all when I was taking it out of the pot.

6 ave. really hasn't had much higher light plants the past couple times i've went. Just a bunch of java ferns and wentii's. Although i did get the last cup of riccia. Haven't been back there for about 2 weeks, so maybe they might have more selection from new shipments.

Added some cardinal tetras. Babies are at a little over 1/2", waiting untill they get about an 1" so that my poor betta can go back into his home after getting kicked out.

That sure is one nice tank. I'm trying out a 5 gallon myself to see what I can do with it.

40 gallon SeaClear Acrylic, 192 watt Orbit Lunar PC, Filstar XP2, Filstar XP1, JBJ Regulator, Rhinox 5000 glass co2 diffusor, 9 watt UV sterilizer, Hydor Inline Heater, Pool Filter Sand substrate
Filstar pimp #53

How comes shoppings so stupid, looks at all this stuff I haves, what do I do's with it.

Your betta is missing out. Whatever your doing keep it up. Looks great! The ricca looks cool on the wood. I like the color contrast.

HA, yeah i know. Poor guy has to wait untill the baby mollies that are in that tank get a little bigger before he goes back into his new home.



Capella: i wish that there was no algea in there but there is. You can't really see it but if i were to zoom in on some parts of the riccia and anubia you would be able to see some fuzz algea that just does not want to go away.

I hope you have all female mollys. This is the first time I have kept mollys. There friggin bunnies. Within the first week the initial batch were born. Now I'm dealing with a feeding gang, can't really call it a school.

One cool thing is my 5 month old daughter watching the mass of juvi sailfins move to their side of the tank for food. I have a LFS that is interested but I'm having a hard time lately with free time.

Pick out those males, if you can tell yet, before they make you a parent.

lol, not yet. Maybe in about a week. I just got my co2 thing going again so I'm hoping for some nice results by next week.

Yup, thats what i'm using. I gave up on the premeasured packets (only 1 of 3 actually produced co2 ) that come with it and am doing one of the DIY recipes. I'm getting much better results.

No problems, they all ended up being female.
