Mac - yeah, I'm one of those. But don't worry, my grandma spells it wrong as well (on purpose) - ha!

Is that Hydrocotyle new, non-c? I don't remember seeing it before. Nice little leaf. Do they all come out red like that and change to green? Cool. Reminds me of a sword I used to have. I like the idea of you taking out the two pieces on the right. Are those the ones you put up to hide the plumbing? Cause it didn't work. Explain to me again why showing equipment in a fish tank is like an ultimate betrayal. I mean it's not like it's hot fluorescent green like those bloody eheim pipes of mine.

I noticed you are posting tiny pictures again, lol. However, I'm not going to complain cause I love the tank and you have spoiled me so with pictures lately.

By the way, the last picture is really good. You are getting better.

tiny pictures? i didnt think so! if you want me to go back to posting them as before i will (weee itty bitty).

the Hydrocotyle has been in there for a week maybe? i snagged some from my friend last weekend, it was starving in his tank.

those pieces of wood were originaly fastened to the pvc. i undid them recently. and have been moving them around. im going to take them out though.

Because big white pvc pipes are ugly & distracting.

on that particular plant they always start out red or red with blotches of green, it did submersed too.

Some of the downoi you sent me completely melted and i was feeling sad, but i noticed that where it melted there are tiny little baby plants starting from the stem. i think it might do ok, but i think its still to soon to tell for sure.

the rotala i added last weekend is already starting to branch and form a bush.

Youve probably listed it somewhere in the 50+ pages, but where did you get your discus?

Also what strain is the yellowish ones with blue fins?

Well, this:


Is MUCH better than this:


But......I'm still trying to get a picture from you that will work as a desktop background.

Don't feel sad! I have more! Sounds like it is taking hold, but I'm not saying anymore cuz I don't wanna jinx it. (You're style of writing is starting to rub off on me....uh-oh.)

See how observant I am? I noticed the pennywort but not the rotala. LOL. Is it on the right in front of the two pieces of wood?

Spray paint (Krylon fusion) will fix that white pvc right up for you. Or black pvc! Or some.....i don't know......BBA?!?! Or what about tying some anubias to it....or moss......or.....I know! Hang a piece of black construction paper on that side of the tank. Want me to crochet you a pvc snuggie?

I like the stripey yellowish discus. I've always liked yellow/orange fish, so I'm biased.

By the way, many thanks for the pictures. I'm sure you've made the lurkers quite happy.

the striped one is wild caught. he's my favorite. i wish they were all like him, rather than chunks of floating clown puke.

the pvc was orginally hidden by the fastened wood and tall stems. when i redo it it will be painted black im sure. the background was also suppsed to be black but turned out kind of greyish. i wouldnt mind if bba took over the pvc, but that would mean itd be taking over everywhere as well.

thanks, i feel honored about the desktop, i will try and get you one.

I found a short video i shot before i changed the tank over to anubias, if i dont pass out at 8:00 i will upload

oh and did you mean i am dumbing you down with my 3 word sentences?

LOL. Hi, Amy!!!

Non-c, At least you didn't hang up a background backward. I actually like the black grayishness (is that a word?) of the background. It looks more.....peaceful. Well, if you change your mind and need more BBA, let me know.

See? Now you know why I want a larger picture. Must I constantly myself to get you to honor my requests for pictures? Cuz I totally will. Do you know how shy I really am to ask for things? Like that really hurts to ask? no joke. But for the sake of my ugly wallpaper and the beating around the bush not getting anywhere....I'll sacrifice what's left of my pride and show sincere humility. LOL.

Yay! Videos! If I could ever get my dogs to simmer down, I'd take a video of my cat playing fetch just for you.

Haha, not dumbing me down.....maybe making me less.....uptight? (I'll deny ever saying this if you tell anyone)
