well a fellow wv member sent me a package, i have another one coming from an online retailer, plus the limno and the hygro. im trimming up some of my willow hygro to send to someone, and i have a few other plans for tomorrow.
so far i got the stand leveled, put the tank on it, and used a gallon of h202 on my driftwood to kill a massive bba outbreak. the wood is laying in the tub now. i pulled it out of the tub (which has enough water to just cover it all) and slowly poured h2o2 all over it until i went through 4 bottles. i have 2 more bottles to use to dip my plants in.
tomorrow i will be trimming down and planting what i have, redesigning my driftwood, using rubber bands to try and attach some fissidens (thread keeps coming undone and fissidens won;t attach to wood), and hopefully refilling the tank. i may get the plant package from the wv guy tomorrow also, shouldn;t take long to ship a driving distance of 2 hours.

|firstname.lastname@example.org||Good job shimming you tank, wish I woulda done that. Stupid things not level Oh well, you cant tell with a lip on it when I fill it all the way up Can't wait to see some pics, and if you need any more plants like what I have just let me know.|

so today i just uprooted my plants and put em in a 5 gal bucket with ym fish and an airstone. i have moved the stand and am getting ready to shim it level. filter cleaning after that, and then getting it all replanted tomorrow after work. i have the rainbow cichlids, some limno aromatica, and hygro pinnatifida being sent to me, also a plant package or two.
after shimming my tank i'm going to be heading out to get some h202 to dip my plants in and to pour over my driftwood. my co2 tank is empty so ill be trying to have it filled tomorrow after work.

my discus and agasizzi died, ive been very busy with a promotion at work. i just ordered some new plants, gonna tear down the tank, move it into a better spot in the house (right now its in a room that no one goes into, ever, including me). my theory is if i see if everyday i'll take a lot better care of it.
im going to keep my bn pleco and get rid of the cories and cockatoo, and i'm going to be gettin 5 juvie rainbow cichlids for it. i want to go simple with the fish and focus on plants. no more trying to do both. major update within a week or so, possibly two. ive been a terrible planted tank keeper and i need to remedy that, asap.
also trying to swing some oebt's tomorrow for my shrimp tank!

Looks like your tank is getting along pretty nicely now, sux you had to totally redo it but it'll be nice. You are a really good aquatic gardener.
The dog is beautiful, awesome she came with pups. They are really cute.

|daverock1337||getting ten stems of blyxa today, gonna trim my tall stems i have left and plant them. pics after its done!|

here we go. oi lost quite a bit of plants in the move. i mean, i didn't even pull out any remains of them. completely melted. driving screwed up my substrate. the discus was acting weird again, but it slowly getting over it. i completely redid the tank, and have some new plans for it. i need some tall background plants, some reds and greens, but am going to be strapped for cash for quite a bit.
i also need some new schooling fish. ill have some endler's livebearers coming for my 10 gallon. i don;t know if the aggie babies survived the move, haven;t seen them in a week. if they didn;t. its time to start saving for the shrimp i want.
i do have some more blyxa coming. my proserpinaca is looking very rough, hopefully it will make a come back. i still have my nurii thank all that is good and great.
on to the pics!
plants and wood ready to go
almost done rescaping. gotta trim the stems and plant them.
all this room for stems. made it easier to plant behind my dw.
a side shot, discus not doing so hot (he is better now)
nasty algae growing in my xmas moss, sprayed it with h2o2 and it turned red with death!
my new dog, jersey. beautiful full blooded pit.
adopted her and she was preggers with full blooded pit pups!
i hear the pups whining, gotta go. enjoy. ill be updating more often now that im settled in. also, the digital camera i am using now is waterproof, might experiment with underwater tank pics lol.

so all seven cardinals died in the move. ive also been super busy with the new job and unpacking that its been neglected.
tomorrow after work and meeting my mom for lunch im going to completely rescape the tank. i have some more blyxa hopefully coming and have a great plan (i hope). i also should have some class n endler's livebearer's on the way for the 10 gallon tank. one of the agassizi babies didn;t make it... my brother i moved in with has an amazing digi camera that is waterproof, so i may start taking in tank pictures with it l;ol. updates before sunday night i promise. very excited to redo the entire tank.
