Should be soon, setting up getting 2 affinis metallic reds this week. have some other stuff coming in to. Not going to go too crazy, but I will be adding more fissidens and Xmas moss, and probably going to get some weeping too for the thrid branch. So the 3 major branches will each have different moss.

Here is a little update of some recent plants. Some s.repens and downi I saved from pet smarts plant section got it 50% off been reviving it in another tank. This will go in my planted 90 gallon once I get it drilled and wet dry going on it.









By the way I want to praise how nice this tank is made, and I am glad I bought 2. It is built really well and is very clear in person.

Just to update another 2 weeks and this will be cycled and I will have all my tbs in it.... Also added a over sized sponge filter to it and a aquatop digital heater. Everything is filling out, about to pull the downi and scrap it because the transition form my 12 long to this made it regress.... Pic coming tomorrow

You have so many amazing tanks going. It's interesting that you get soft RO water. Here in downtown Sacramento the RO water still comes out at 7.4 PH

If you don't mind sharing, where do you get your Mr Aqua tanks locally? Jo Jo's? I know I won't get the discount but I have been itching to get a 12L going.
