Loved the look of your tank even before any plants were added. In my first planted tank I'm going to go out and find rocks as well, but will using them in a completely different way. I'd eventually like to convert my 29g to a planted tank though and when I do I may very well be coming back to this thread.

Really digging your tank man. I like the aggressive hardscape and the fish choices. How are the rummynose and glass cats working for you? Loved the look of the glass cats, but they're a bit shy eh?

they dont move around so much, they will venture out every offten from the shelter of the rock but thats rarely. they mostly just school at the base of some of the rock as i have shown in the pictures haha kinda a lazy fish but def nothing else like it out there. but the rummys def make up for the laziness they school hardcore and swim back and forth all day long haha im def think about getting a few more of them large school of rummys look epic! sadly found one dead today :/ but things happen sometimes they cant take the stress and die over time.

Oh no! I have many friends in Ct, so I know what you're dealing with - take care, stay well, and we will keep out fingers crossed for your tank!

heres my post in my other thread haha

Well bad news for the 10g tank :/ every fish tank goers worst nightmare happened last night in my house. So here what went down. me and a friend of mine were trying to lift the tank a small amount to level it with some small pieces of paper. and as soon as it left the ground, his hand went strait through the side of the tank and all 10 gallons of the water went into my room and emptied into my walls and under the hardwood floor fml right?. but the worst thing of all due to the horrible blizzard we just got the power went out just as all this happened. literately the hand went threw the tank and it turned off. like the cracking glass was a switch or something :::::: so worst case scenario happened. im just glad my 29g didn't break lol.

well i salvaged what i could and was more worried about soaking up water then the fishes safety so i lost about half of the fish and not sure how many shrimp. but all of the plants were safe luckily i guess. once the power comes back on in a couple days we will see what happens. anybody have any ideas to keeping a tank warm with no power lol?? im so f#%$ed

What a horrible set of coincidences.

The only thing I can think of to generate heat with no power is FIRE thanks to all those survival shows. It's cold winter nights like this where I wish I had some sort of fireplace.

No power loss here, just a heaping mountain of snow that I'm finding a hard time removing without the use of a well "maintained" snow thrower. It's turning into ice right now so I'll have to bring out the mattock to chisel it out tomorrow.

Oh, one actual idea in the future is HEAT packs, spare blankets & a cooler/thermos type ice chests to store everything in.



Good luck.
