demonr6 Great effort man, I was pulling for you in my absence. Just really tough having to continually spam for so many days trying to drum up support. I will keep the rest of my comments though to myself.

Good work, nice tanks and keep at it man!

sewingalot It was a close call in the last few days, Higher Thinking! I wish there were two to give out, as you have a lovely tank.

Higher Thinking Feel short there at the end, so that's that I guess. Thanks to everyone who stopped in! Congratulations to MsCichlid.

Do not know why I forgot to congratulate you on the engagement, guess I was just thinking about that cool wood piece in that tank with the tree. Congratulations buddy, I wish you two to have a long, happy, and prosperous life together. Did you propose to her in the gazebo, or was that just a photograph opportunity? Really nice pic and you two make a really great couple. Good luck on everything, hope everything goes well.
Hey thanks alot man, I really appreciate it. Yea I proposed right there in that little area. It was her birthday and I gave her a card and told her to turn around and read it. She opened it up and it was a "congratulations on your engagement," card. I wrote it that I know it is a little premature, but I am sure it is sooner than she thinks. When she turned back around I was on my knee with the ring. She had no idea that it was coming which made it all the more fun. Thanks again!

Yea I already know about the background. That is the first tank I owned and was still developing my style (as I still am I guess). Now that I've got it back to square one, I will definitely throw some black on there and rebuild everything with a nice clean setup. Thanks!

I breed the bristle nose plecos. The parents are both the natural color but their offspring are both regular colored and albino. Get him a female and see if they will breed. The male will pick a cave (which he seems to have already done) and then the female will lay eggs in there and he'll stay in there and guard them. Really cool watching his behavior as he fans the eggs.

Higher Thinking Here is one more tank that I own. I just spent the last 5 or so hours doing a complete re-scape and cleaning. I kind of let this tank get away from me and it was driving me nuts. I should have taken some before photos to show the changes, but can't do anything about that now.

I didn't really know what to do with the bogwood, but I want to keep it in there because I'm growing out about 25 or so bristle nose and they really like it. I definitely need some help bringing this tank back to good health. I'm hoping that I can grow out that moss to make a full tree top.

It's a 55 gallon with 3 T-8s. I usually just use Seachem's complete with this tank, but haven't done so recently as is obvious with the condition of those swords.

This is my last hoorah to win this RAOK. Leave me all sorts of comments, suggestions, or just say hello.

Hey good to see you on here! Hope all those plants work out for you. Thanks for stopping in. I'll get some pictures of the re-scaped 55 gal on here later tonight.
