I proudly use, "Paint Shop Pro 5", for all my quick illustrations. It is fast and has just enough features to keep me happy. Later versions of this software are slower to use and start-up. They made functions more complex to add better functionality but sacrificed speed to do this. (Just like most complex art programs.) To do something as simple as I did in minutes, other art programs would take you hours, sifting through tons of options and settings, just to get the most simple images.

I am sure you can find the old version on some download sites. It is a fully functioning trial version that never disables and has no "LOCKED" features. In other words, when you actually buy this, nothing will change except for the "REMINDER" pop-up when the program starts, and there will also be no additional artwork with the free version. This also comes with Animation shop, so you can make animated GIF's from your drawings.

Well, the plants seem to be hanging on. The Mystery Plant looks a little greener than when I bought it. Still a lot of dead matter as you can see but it's an improvement I tell ya! The Crypts appear the same, no growth, no loss. But then, I don't know how much crypts are supposed to grow in a tank with low light and no CO2 or ferts. Recently some of the tips started curling a bit, don't know what that means? Also, ignore the yellow looking leaves in the pic. They are not yellow in real life, I think it was camera flash glare.

Ammonia has been 0 all along. I think. Day 2 and Day 3 the test looked like there might be traces, but I wasn't sure, so I didn't do any water changes. After Day 4 it's been unquestionably zero.

I lost one fish. I mean, I really lost him. I don't know where he is. He disappeared one day. His dried body is not anywhere near the tank and he's not in it. If you've seen the AquaScene/View up close you know there's only one hole he could have jumped through and it's pretty small at that. Puzzling. The other fish are fine and eat well.

I purchased a normal size light socket and a normal base 7w CF made by LOA. I will upgrade eventually but I want to see what 4w will do for a month or 2. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks for reading.
