Hey CPDzeke! Just checked out your journal. Can't wait to see it once your out of the whole "nasty algae" stage (trust me, I've been there. )

Here's my new, tiny, chubby oto. He leaves trails in the GDA! Awesome algae eater. He was the only one in a tank with Pygmy cories, and he was swimming with them like he thought he was one!
My oto's will do that occasionally with my C. Habrosus! Real fun to watch. haha

I really like this. Have you considered two things? First, having the substrate even at the front. I think it would make the "mountain" look more imposing, in a good way. Second, I think the mountain could be taller, both to fill up the height of the tank (like 2/3 the way to the top), plus it wouldn't be the same size as the left rock (don't know if you removed it or not). Just my opinion but I really like this a lot.

Thank you! The big rock is gone. How do I make it bigger? I'll accept any Aquasoil donations.

Alright, time to beg for an AFA gift certificate for my birthday!
I'll just get a 9l bag and set up a 45-F with some a 2.5 with more and add to my mountain with more. Wait! It'll leach ammonia, so the fish and shrimp are going to have a vacation in a breeder box.

Yeah my parents would never do that. They even complain when I'm spending my own hard-earned (not allowance) cash. I think your plan is going to come out great

Yeah. My dad lets me go to the LFS only every 3 weeks so I don't blow all my cash on tanks and stuff. They do complain when I do that. For example You're spending so much money on plants! Don't you already have enough?
You can never have too many plants.

I don't know how old the both of you are, but I'm sixteen -- I think as you get older and become more independent, they begin to care less. For example, parents would've killed me three years ago for dropping several Benjamins on a Mini S setup or almost as much on a nice watch. But as you earn more, show more maturity, they ease off.

or on the opposite end of the spectrum, get them to pay for it. from a biological standpoint, the only point a post-reproductive individual has is to help the pre-reproductive and reproductive generations. your parents exist for you.
and there are a bunch of ways to get stuff. almost dying works very well (dont try this at home), i got acute altitude sickness in peru. had a heart rate north of 200 by the time i got bottled oxygen, when i mentioned my laptop was overheating 2 days later, i got the green light to buy an alienware m14x.

I see you have one of those snazzy new GLA bubble counters. Let us know how that goes!

Regarding parents... I'm 17 and my dad could care less what I do with my tanks just cuz I've been able to pay for myself now, just a thought

Yeah. Just started selling plants. It's a good business when the most you'll ever make without it is $100 a month.

Sadly, my old lily pipe cracked somehow, but I will make a new one tomorrow. I'm using a pretty bad one now.
The first one will be normal, and if I have a little extra tubing I will practice the dark art of creativity. That's right! I'm making a lily pipe spin!
