ADA 90P Iwugami (56K Warning) Updated 5/16/2013


My microsword is bubbling, hehehe. Now if only I could clean my glass and get rid of these tiny snails I'd be happy.

Yea I want to get a couple of big pieces of Seriyu stones. I have a few small pieces in my tank. I love the white and grey contrast they give. They are expensive. I am over the drift wood look, I think. However, I would like to try some flame moss but with moss it is a PIA to cut and then it gets all over the place in the tank (from experience). In the past I wold have to take out the wood and cut the moss in my bath tub. Anyway, if you find any let me know and vice versa,

Oh I'm just using a workshop Gorilla stand; nothing fancy. I think I'm getting tired of my iwugami and I'm considering a rescape to Glosso and switching out the fluorite for some Aquasoil. But with the fish and the cherries in there I don't know if my biofilter could handle the abrupt increase in Ammonia. I'm still twirling things around in my mind at this point.

Quick update, bought about 30 Amanos and they should be here Weds. and about 20 tiny PFR cherries (that are gorgeous but damn were they expensive). The PFR cherries are finally fattening up and growing and with the color they look like now, I can't wait to see what they'll look like fully grown...wow!

I vote go for it! Think you will try a rainforest? image of nature from a far? a garden (dutch)?

The vortech really does do an awesome job at distributing the CO2.

Now in your opinion was the wood tight worth it?

Well the woodtight wasn't worth it; it is ok, but not as easily useable as thread or microzip ties. I was thinking about a rainforest, but I'm waiting to see how these Amanos handle the foreground. If they can get it back in shape then I won't change anything, since I've begun to notice the need leaf java really taking off. The Vortech is, without a doubt, an excellent piece of equipment and they have truly excellent customer service. It was entirely too expensive, but when one considers the functionality and the build quality (which is serious) I guess the cost was comparable.

I'm still surprised anyone reads this journal at all! LMAO.

Default Amanos galore!!!

Well they have arrived and they look like an army of crack fiends at work, as you can see below (please excuse the dirty glass). But even more fascinating is the assassin snail. OMG! This bad boy works fast. Not even a minute after being unceremoniously dumped in the aquarium and he's at work killing off my snails! I've fallen in love, lol. And you'll note in the photos below how the green of the foreground changes - I still can't seem to get my photography skills to reflect reality; underexposure, overexposure, I really need to take a class and learn at least the basics.




A close up of one of the adults Amanos at work:



My ninja assassin at work, thanks so much Msjinkzd!!!
