knuggs My fishroom has been completely moved to my new house now I just need to clean them up! They have been sloshed around and neglected for over a month. Maybe I will post some rough pics later and that way we can see the transformation better if I ever get time because this new house is a never ending project. Guess thats what I get for going for a foreclosure that has sat for 2yrs. Def. gonna love my new fish room though it has more room and may add up to 10 more 10gs even though I like bigger tanks better the 10s are so much easier to move. The 75g was a PITA specially with over 3+ inches of eco complete still in it. NO way I was goin to take the Bario Crypts out of the dirt. I will have some pics up of there growth in my main tank journal since it is now the new main

knuggs Well hopefully you will get to one day! I used to wish too :P

flowerfishs I wish I can have a fish room like that..

knuggs Thanks, Don! Yeah I got lucky my gf loves my hobby and encourages it. Can't wait to get my new house so I can expand and create more species only tanks. Sometimes my collectoritis exceeds my tank space.

I agree completely, crypt patches are a lot more beautiful and natural than just singles. Just takes awhile to get them like that. I wouldn't mind seeing a pic of your Keei patch.

crazydaz Nice tanks, Lucas! And, sandwich!

My wife said "no" to the fishroom idea I had a long time ago.....so cool to see such a cluster of micro-habitats together, IMO.

That hudori patch is really nice looking! I have a keei patch that is similar to that. They look better in patches as opposed to single specimens!

knuggs Thanks Fishboy! I'm moving soon, so hopefully I can get a bigger room and maybe a bigger tank too, I'm thinking something in the 200g range

fishboy199413 It looks like you have fun with your tanks by the look of that sandwhich . I wish I could have all of those tanks and fish. You have alot of my favorite fish, I'm jealous. Keep up the good work.

knuggs Thanks! The full name is: Venezuelan Pygmy Cory (Corydoras habrosus). Here's some quick FTS(not the best pic). I'm actually in the middle of readjusting a lot of them and sold quite a bit to make some room. The red markings in the tank are my notes for what I'm doing with my tanks. It's easy to vision but takes time to develop.

Looks good, knuggs!!! I think the hydrocotyle species in there is verticillata...I had some that would send up similar leaves if they were in a shady location. It looks cool, though, especially in that picture!
Poor fella...luckily I got my gf into them too and convinced her into setting up some of her own. That way I know she cant say anything about my fish room, not that I think she would. I catch her all the time looking in the tanks

Thats was thinking the same with the Hydrocotyle. Yeah its cool how it will grow real short in high light but will get tall in low light. That tank is a 40b.

Riccia doesnt like Excel but Loves Co2! Maybe does some ferts like Potassium and CSM+B or whatever you use for nutrient stimulation.
