My family makes a similar salsa with mango. I like to roast the tomatoes, peppers, and half the onions, rather than blanching/boiling.

Whoops, that's what I get for trying to fast forward to the pictures, haha. Thanks! Do you find that the fish and shrimp have enough room? Do the pristella tetras school or shoal with the neons?

So much growth! Looks great. Would you mind listing what type of fauna you currently have in there?

I'll be picking up two or three more tetras once I'm sure that the new tank is settled, but I won't be giving up one of the otocinclus.

Ha, the same thing with the floating wood happened to me a few days ago. I can't even remember how I had the driftwood arranged before it floated, so there goes that.

Pacific sells curved scissors. A pack with the scissors + the long tweezers is $40 (although you can probably talk the price down a bit). I don't remember the price for each separate piece, but I...

Setting up new tank, what to do with fish?

I currently have 3 otocinclus and 4 glowlight tetras in a 6 or 7 gallon tank. I recently bought a 17 gallon tank and a new filter, and I'd like to know the best way to switch them over.

My plan is...

I'd say exactly, that, then. And I'd do as someone above suggested, and call you local fish store to see if they'll take the cichlid. If that fails, offer it as a RAOK here on the forum, or maybe on...

From what I understand, 12mm is the inner diameter, so 13mm lily pipes should work. I've read that some people use a little heat (a hair dryer should work) to soften the tube so that insertion will...

I'd be worried that they might throw out the cichlid and the goldfish, and that they wouldn't maintain the tank. If you offer to redo the tank, will you also offer to do water changes, dosing,...

I'd remove the rockwool that it's planted in, separate into small clumps, and plant close together. It'll still look bushy, but the roots won't be choked. You could also try to remove the rockwool,...

Hilde's suggestions sound good. If you've got some driftwood or rocks, you can attach java fern and anubias to it. Wisteria might also be a good choice.

I'm more worried about my workmanship than anything, but this is good to know! I've made kokedama before, and it sounds like this wouldn't be too different.

So jealous! I'm really tempted to try to make my own wabi-kusa-inspired plant ball; I think I've got enough clippings and things to put something together. I'm just worried that it'll fall apart.

Whaaaat! I didn't even notice, haha. How weird. You take good pictures and have a nice setup. Have you decided on how you're going to plant it? Are you reusing the plants from the Mr. Aqua tank?
