Not really sure if the they spawned or not, just found two more baby cherry barbs. I typically find them at 1/2" apparently larger than the adults can eat.
I've listed ALL my C. Nurri for sale to facilitate an reshape. I may find baby Baby gobies then.

What a AWESOME TANK!!!
I really love the crypts!!! The whole setup is just beautiful! My wife really likes it too! She saw it, and asked why don't my tanks and stands look that nice? I told her they would if she would loosen her purse strings a bit more! That didn't go over to well!!!
Anyway keep up the AWESOME WORK, and I would like to get some of your MTS II as well! When Ya going to make it up?
Also did the gobies ever spawn in their cave???

hobo717 -Thank you. I've always thought C. Becketti was a nice looking Crypt, I don't think it gets the attention it deserves. I keep one plant, I'm tring to get to produce a spath in an emersed tank. It's the 2nd pot from the Top:
The 3rd pot is a C. Nurii I just started
4th a C. affinis

Had to do some serious cleaning today. The Neon Blue Goby (Stiphodon Atropurpureus), decided to excavate a huge Goby Dungeon under the rock in the lower left corner. Here's clump of C. Nuri (35+ plants) with the mopane & Java removed. If they spawn, I'm more than willing to forgive their transgressions.
This is one of the mopane wood pc showing the Java fern after 16 months. I started it with about 8 small rhizomes of Java Fern. I just continually add baby ferns from the mother plants.

Shooting you a pm

Would Justin Wilson give up his Gumbo recipe?
I'll be cooking' up my 2013 in June or July depending on the heat up here. Stay in touch. Don (Crazydaze) has the 2012 GEN II batch in his tank. Mine is the GEN I batch. Each year it gets a bit better as I learn more about the process.
On the daily water changes, 5% on a 40 gallon tank is only 2 gl. It doesn't take more than 10min to syphon off 2gal and refill. I've been recycling that water into my Aquaponic system and watering the house plants with it.

Would you perhaps mind disclosing this Double Secret Mix recipe to me in a PM?
How the heck do you have time for 2 WC a day? or is this an auto rig?

I don't use CO2, I don't dose on a regular basis, water is 7.5 out of the tap +declor and into the tank, I don't even own a test kit.
I have been running an experiment of sorts. I've been doing 2 - 5-10% W/C per day since Thanksgiving.
I also stagger my light schedule, I do low light , med, high, light days with different photoperiods. I do some days low and a midday peak, I do some no light days.
Basically, I taunt the established norms of the hobby.
