Thanks man.

I did read about that. The funny thing, right after I read it, it started acting funny for me. Glad you got it all figured out though. It is really easy once you get into a groove.

Yeah, I got it now. Im such a bad learner, I get frustrated fast in my old age, non-computer nerdy wats

Bad news...I got all the way down to the bottom of the breakdown and never did find ANY of the three Starlight plecos that I got from bSmith. Dang! Those guys were awesome! and I just figured they were hiding all the time. I just saw one a week ago I wonder what happened???

I am quickly becoming a computer nerd being on here.

Sorry to hear about the plecos man.

What?!????!?

Not really bud. I am not sure what happened there but they were in good shape when you saw them right? I know that since they were babies they are more fragile than adults but still your tank I thought had good params for them.

What are the params and temp you keep it again?

Also I do have about 4 or so left from the batch you got yours from that ate now getting a pretty good size if your interested. Also had another spawn about two weeks ago and have quite a few babies running around that will be ready to go in a month or so.

Brandon, they were in good params. I kept my yellow shrimp in here and it stays about 73*. IDK if theyll pop up because I mved everything in the tank or what. I would think ida seen at least one of them. They were tiny but im pretty confident that they had what they needed unless it got too chilly moving the tanks around w/o the heater but there would have been something at least. Ill let you know. I was really looking forward to these guys being big and awesome

Yeah they are at 84 here. Maybe it got a bit too cold for their little bodies. I had adults at that temp but they were full grown and I'm sure more resilient when it comes to more chilly temps.
