Its not a bad sign The brown on the tops was from the bin overheating in my emersed window setup. I've tried it in my main tank a couple times and it just slowly melts away after a month or two.

My guess as to the cause is either the temp is too high (84F - discus tank) and/or a potassium deficiency. I just havent gotten around to trying to fix it since I have it doing fairly well emersed.

Tanks are lookin good!

My Fiancee bought me new LED lights for my edge, for my birthday...they made the tank look so much better...



Xmas moss looks almost too perfect



Caridina cf. babaulti stripes “Zebra”
I only have three left, and only one that has the stripes...so it's impossible to actually take a picture of it.



One of my Blue Pearls
They always look more blue when you take pictures of them!

That sucks that you don't even know if you can breed the zebras then. I'm gonna let my pearls breed in their breeder tank for a while. Then i'm gonna separate the snowballs into another tank. Might as well work with what i got! Oh and crs tonight!!! Yay!!

my red rilli's gave birth. i have a few little shrimplets scampering around. too tough to catch them for pics. and the orange ones are definitely caridina cf. propinqua. they are starting to get brown stripes. so sad.

that sucks about your hands. you're supposed to cook the food, not your hands buddy!! if you need any help until you heal, hit me up.

You're getting firebellies, right? They don't need super high humidity. You'll be better off with a bit lower humidity and higher airflow. They love being in the water...especially if they can "stand" where most of their body is submerged and their head is above water. I have a piece of slate siliconed in a corner just below the water level and my froggies are on it all the time.

actually, that tank will be for white's tree frogs. i'm planning on breaking down my 125 in the next few months and making it a 125g paludarium for fire bellies.
i can easily keep my humidity wherever i want with the misting system. right now, it's gonna be used to house my rare crypts for the breakdown. i just need to find homes for my fishies. the raphael's are gonna be the hard ones to find homes for.

Gotcha. Wish I had the room to make my fbt tank a lot larger. I'd link to it but I'm on my phone.
