Lol, been there and have done that. I lose intertest in the hobby if i get to many projects going, it feels like a chore instead of something that i love to do. Most of my tank time is wrapped up with this tank and then i have one more where the maintenance is pretty much non-existent.

Anyway!!
I have six fry left in the net that i can count!
I can see their itty bitty fantails!!

Which plants have survived and which ones didn't?

That recent picture looks like a riparium waiting to happen too.

The only plant that isn't doing well is the melon sword, I plan to replace it with a large amazon sword or crypt spiralis. The crypt pontederiifolia gets beat up and eaten the most and the amazon sword is next. I guess I have been slacking with feeding or something because they have been munching the sword more than usual.

The plants behind the tank is a special filter I built to help with nitrates, it works pretty well =]

Oh, is it like a bog filter? I'd love to see pics of how it works if you haven't posted them already. I love seeing plants above the water line. All my tanks have floaters!

Yes, similar to a bog filter.
I don't really have pics but water flows down into the bottom of the pot and flows up through biomedia and the roots of the plants then flows out and back into the tank.

It has def reduced my nitrates.

How is your filter working? How long do you go between water changes?

Your fish still look healthy and happy. How are the goldy fry doing? Getting bigger?

Thanks!

Fish are doing good. Fry all died, twice now when I have fry in the net and the parents spawned all the fry die....

But they are spawning every 2-3 weeks. And there were spawning this morning when I left for work. Maybe eggs when I get home...

I took new pics of the tank after I cleaned it and picked out a bunch of destroyed sword leaves. I'll have to post them soon!

Those goldies are huge and beautiful. I would love to just get a couple tiny goldies and grow them into monsters, maybe someday.

Alos I want to see that mermaid.
