Hey guys, I'm going to Florida next week (Kissimmee/St. Cloud area) so I won't be around here for a while. I might be visiting a Fish Breeder in Lakeland, which I'm stoked about. I've never seen a domestic Fish Breeding operation.

Be back in ten days!

Have a great time Sam! If you do end up visiting the fish breeder make sure to take lots and lots of pictures!

I'm back! Didn't get to visit the fish hatchery in Lakeland, but I did a lot of what I do best - nothing. Just lounged around the pool most of the time or grilled some barbeque with the family.
The tank looks like a jungle after a complete week without attention. The fish are fine, just a bit hungry. Initial head count seems to show everyone's still there. I took a pic of the tank in its overgrown state, though. I'll post it tomorrow. You guys have got to see it, haha. It's a mess.

What to do with the clippings, though? I might take a trip to my LFS. I've never talked to them about buying my clippings, but maybe I can get some store credit. There's going to be a ton of Sunset Hygro, Baby Tears and Ludwigia.

My feeling is, store credit is better than the trash can. Plus, it cures that bad feeling you get throwing them away.

Here's a pic of the jungle. I pruned last night and have got a bucket full of Sunset Hygro, Rotala Indica and Baby Tears that I'm going to bring to the LFS tonight.

Your Tank looks really, really good Sam. Although I personally like tanks a little more overgrown than most people would. The tank looks really good as it is!

Thanks, man. Sometimes Jungle tanks are my favorite, too. I guess if the Sunset Hygro wasn't so tall that it was cluttered around the top, it would look better.
That open patch of gravel just left of center is where I am trying to grow some glosso, so I had to clear a way for light to get down there. I've finally got my fert regimen down pat, so things are starting to look a lot better than they have been. And the BBH algae is almost completely gone, thanks to the diligent efforts of my ten SAE soldiers!

I love the tank. Glad to hear the SAEs are earning their keep.

BTW, what is BBH algae?
