The driftwood at A.S. is really nice, lots of selection. I was just there this past saturday. In fact, I happen to know of a few peices with really nice and huge java ferns covering them Unless Tim used 'em already.

By the way, Tim - the new apistos are doing well. They are enjoying a whole lot of baby brine shrimps at the moment I think they like each other.....sort of. The male (longer dorsal fin?) keeps nipping at the female....probably normal I hope.

I have bought to much in the last few months from A.S. so I have been banned from going there.

I should state I can go down there and chat but without my wallet.

Maybe you could sweep the floors or something while you're here. By the way we have your charge card on file, so you won't need your wallet.

Hey Tim, I was wondering if its possible for you to try to acquire a certain Archer fish for me. Name is Toxotes Microlepis. They're not very available in the fish trade it seems. Usually just the 2 main varieties are all you see anywhere.

Looking at a different way to run the skimmer Otis. I have lost some fish to the fluval. Found two swimming in the bottom Sunday and 5 dead. They must be swimming over the overflow. I am going to try a stocking over the top of the intake and see what that does. Any thoughts?

I also found the name of the hygro

Hygrophila salicifolia
or willow leaf Hygro check out this pic at this link.

Tim, my guess for that plant would be the "Kliener Bar" sword plant -- ECHINODORUS 'KLEINER BAR'.

Nice find on the willow leaf hygro! Did you get that plant yourself, or just saw it?

[QUOTE=esarkipato;408810]Tim, my guess for that plant would be the "Kliener Bar" sword plant

Hi Ernie, Matt was the one who asked for the id on the sword. I have Kleiner bar swords and they don't resemble the picture. There are many hybrids available and lighting will make swords look different.

OK, I'll make a guess, I think the sword is probably Echinodorus x. "Nova Ozelot." There are a couple of varieties of Ozelot with the Nova having the most brown marbling.

I have 2 of those Swords, they were sold to me as Flame Swords by "ihooklow" on this site.

EDIT: Just checked plantedtank.net and they are definitely Ozelot.

Believe it or not, I don't remember every item that everyone buys. I'm thinking that you bought one of those full Kleiner Bars that I had a couple of months ago. That's the same sword that's in the center of the stingray tank. Hmm, that just got me thinking that I should post some pictures of that aquarium. It's quite unique.
