Alan sent me pics of the built regulator- awesome!!!!! Ships out Monday!

I went a little overboard and bought a Neptune Apex Controller...
I also bought a dual stage regulator from AlanLe! He sent me a pic prior to assembly-
Can't wait to set it all up!
Though I do find it a bit ironic I only paid $60 for the 125G Tank itself LOL! Fish store was closing... Clear for Life 125G uniquarium for 60 bucks! (It has some scratches though)

I got a 7 count of crays today!!! Awesome as getting any count in my tank is pretty tough with all the cover!
And I pulled out a few hundred MTS (Malaysian trumpet snails). Here is the tool I designed to do it-
Works PERFECTLY!!! Sand bottoms only... but so simple. Scoop up the sand with the front/water bottle top and it sifts the snails out via the filer media bag. you just dump them out when done! I put them all in my hospital tank- now I need a few assassin snails... lol

|doinkmobb||This tank is way more interesting, imaginative and creative than the 8 million "me too" umi-gumi layouts. They are pretty to look at, but it's just the same thing over and over; this one stands out and is innovative, instead of formulaic.|

I should mention I got the Dwarf Blue Crays from onestopaquatics.com He's also on aquabid. I couldn't find a lot of references for him other than aquabid feedback so I'll post my experience here.
He posted a sale thread here and I then found his online store. I ordered on Friday and had the Crays Monday noonish! All lived, he gave me a bonus cray and they were fully active when I opened the box.

Blue crays got here safe and sound- even sent a bonus cray so I have 13 Juveniles. Drip acclimated for 3-4 hours to be safe (they were expensive...) and now they are in the tank!
They are so freakin awesome that I will be very sad if I can't get them to do well and breed...
Cherry shrimp have no personality... These little guys are all personality! And they love to brawl each other. Acclimating them was like watching a cage match...
Most of mine are the size of a cherry shrimp!

I just bought 12 Cambarellus Diminutus (dwarf blue crayfish)... So excited!
I don't care if they turn brown, I just wanted the smallest species! I do hope they stay blueish though.
I really want the CPOs as they are such an amazing orange! But I don't trust them... Regardless of what most people experience... 2 inch crayfish can do some damage! They may not, but they absolutely can...
1 inch blues? about half as much LOL

I always laugh at the mention of "traditional layout" because when I started planted aquariums, nobody was doing nice planted tanks other than Dutch style- and I had never actually seen one outside a magazine. They were relatively rare.
The most traditional layout was plastic plants! Now everyone is doing ADA style... When CO2 became commonplace, ADA style tanks took off in the US. Its been amazing to watch the ADA influence take over the majority of the hobby- though for good reason!
Im old LOL.

|exv152||It's not your traditional layout, but I like what you've done, you've got some interesting fish species, and I like the moss.|

A pic of my Farlowella! Almost died, was little when I got him... now he's doing great and has been for years!

|Simon_Stephen||this tank is one of my favorite tanks I've seen on this forum good job man|
|07-16-2015 09:25 PM|
You NAILED it with the fish swimming question- thats my new problem LOL. I have to, at least every 4-5 days, smush the moss together to tighten it up and make it so the fish can swim through. The Rummies really liked it smushed/passage open but the Neons prefer to go over the top or just under the anubias leaves so I may stop smushing lol.
BTW the shrimp are going bananas in that moss in the center!
