well no new pictures yet, the boy and I were feeling under the weather, mostly due to lack of sleep sunday night (he was at the giant's game and didn't get home til 1:30am... i'm not sure why I was still up when he got home...mild insomnia attack i guess so I was busy unpacking some of the last boxes) so by the time i got home from doing errands last night and we'd eaten the chicken soup I brought home we were both pretty much ready to call it a night.
BUT I did get a nice piece of DW for the tank while I was out that I soaked overnight so that it would sink, i scrubbed it this morning and popped it in the tank. I'll deal with tannins via water changes, it's only a 10g tank after all so water changes are pretty simple.
I'll try to get pics of the tank with the DW tonight and post them later or tomorrow. I'm going to try to get this guy planted tonight if I can too so I don't lose my plants, they only last so long floating.
Unfortunately, I totally forgot to go to HD for a piece of plexi to put over top of the tank until my next paycheck (next week) when i can afford a hood or glass canopy & strip light. Normally I'd just leave it open top and not worry, but I hear WCMMs are jumpers, so I'm trying to keep them in the tank
In the mean time I've jerry rigged something that will let the light through, I've got the canopy from the 5g across the center the wrong way with some saran wrap running across the long way, i needed the center "bridge" so the saran didn't "stick" directly to the water. The goose neck floor lamp will also continue to be the light for the next week - week and a half. It's messy and ugly, but it should do the trick very
Ok that's all for now....pics later or tomorrow.
