I have a package coming in today from AquaBid. It's a bunch of floaters, 8 different species!

I realized that my high light plants are not happy with all the shade from the big bundle of floating mess, so I am going to try and plant most if not all of the remaining stem plants and stuff today and tomorrow. I will take some pics soon also.

I just remembered I am fresh out of anchors. That was why I didn't plant the rest of the stem plants yesterday. I'll try planting them without though I doubt I will have much success. Good thing I ordered 2 more packs tho I probably should have gotten another 4-5. I go through these things like candy now. Lol.

What post/page?

if your referring to my most recent addition of pictures on page #4 entitled, "Pics!", post #54, 2 pictures down from the top, on the right hand side of the picture, I think your referring to my adult brown, shortfin bushynose pleco. He is a monster, pushing 6".

If not, please clarify what picture your talking about.

That is an alpha-male Rhinogobius candidianus. Alpha male's have the best colors but don't expect this much color on the subdominant males or females. Very territorial, stays relitively small, a trio would work well for a 20g long. Very rare unfortunately. Never seen these at an lfs, had to get them from my friend who is a rare import specialist. All of them are wild caught atm.

Of course not, I'm at work right now so I don't have much time to post atm. I haven't done anything significant enough with the tank for the past 24 hours to consider another update post.

The cabomba has been growing in nicely. Aponogeton already have 3-4 new leaves. Unfortunetely I can't say the same for my ludwigia glandulosa, which hasn't been growing SLLLOOOWWLLLYYY. Nothing new with the sword, maybe a few new flowers and a baby or 2, can't tell.

Having a terrible day at work so far today. Threats of lawsuit by unreasonable distributers, employee almost fired, power went out 3x, the company that makes us our packaging foam sent us the wrong order, and it turns out we booked our rental house for vacation the wrong week and 2300$ down the drain... what a day.

I would suggest moving your goby to a different tank. The goby and the discus need very different water parameters. The gobies prefer to be in a tank with cooler water that is below 75* and the discus prefer water that in 82-84*. You can see by the pictures that the discus are pretty stressed out. It probably doesn't help them having the blood parrot in their with them either.
