The plants look healthy - you've got a ton of crypts in there -lol. If you need plants let me know. I don't think it would take much to make it look better. A sword in the corner or some driftwood with java fern/bolbitis would give it a focus point. I have the plants if you need em (not a lot though...tossed a ton due to algea - probably need another week to finish eradicating it)

Aheartlessfish - You can always camp here in the guest room for the night and ride along with me into Philly the following day.

Also, I'm coming up to the 'burg' to see C.C. on Nov. 18th. If you have time, let me know.

Tank's looking great rob. Looks really full. Did you put fully grown plants in? Or did it grow in like that?

Thank you.

I bought them small and put some root tabs underneath them. They literally shot up from there. The Osiris Sword really took off and the wisteria is a weed.

I'm officially jealous Joon. Very Nice Fishroom!!! I'm trying to convince my wife, AKA Financial Planner, that i need a fish room.

What kinda frontosa do you have in the 180? Also, if you do an order for those calvus, let me know...maybe we can group by.

BTW, Nemo's is having a big sale next Sunday. I believe 50% off and they usualloy get some good calvus.

What do you have for sale?
