You should flick that spider right into the tank before he makes a meal out of you... I hate spiders. Not because they bite, because they do so unpredictably

That's looking really nice and filling in very well. I love the orange von rios as I have some in my tank as well. When I see a tank like yours I wish I wouldn't have done a high light stem tank again and went for the lower maintenance plants. So much less work and just a beautiful.

They are Philippine Blue Angels. A local guy breeds them. They are beautiful in person. I really like them.

Thanks ua. Yeah i gave high tech a whirl twice and i just couldn't dial it in right and was over come with BBA both times. I am still pretty new to planted tanks, or at least i consider myself new at it, so i am not discarding giving it another try. But if i do it will be on a MUCH smaller scale than this 125g. Maybe a 40B or something like that.

The von Rios are awesome. I love them, but someone in my tank if nipping at them and i can't figure out who atm. i haven't seen anyone do it, other then other von Rios.

Thx. I do a dry start on all my tanks. So i chop the Fiss up with a razor blade until it is just a green pile of mush. Then, after my tank is completely scaped, i just smear the fuss mush where i want it grow. Cover the tank. Mist it everyday to keep out moist. Lights on 8 hours a day. After a few weeks, the fuss is attached. Flood tank!
