I can't believe you haven't set up a webcam that you'll be constantly checking from the cruise.

What!

A cruise without internets is obscene!

Well, what's obscene is the price for internet on the boat. For freaking $10K wifi should be included! Seriously, how hard can it be.

Not bad for a family.

Will you be snorkeling or checking anything water-related out?

Back early.

First off, shrimp: no apparent deaths. Only new berries, babies, and significant growth in smaller shrimp.

Second off, this tank: it's a sea of green. Just a little hair algae. Didiplis diandra is almost to the top of the tank. HC is looking pretty unruly, but otherwise healthy. Just needs a (major) trim.

Lastly, the trees: neighbor took better care of them than me, it would seem. Trident maple has grown explosively, Chinese elm hasn't lost any leaves, and the Japanese maple just lost a few new leaves.

What a great sight to come back to from an even better vacation! Extensive pictures and cleaning/trimming etc. to come tomorrow, but I prolly won't be waking up until 11 or 12 in the AM though!

Here are a few pics:

Tank when I got home, before trim:


After a nice trim and algal cleaning session (yes, I missed a spot... or 3 on the back )


My Trident maple just when I got home, again before trimming/pruning. Loving how it's turning out!


And afterwards!


Comments welcomed/demanded!

still loving the d. diandra. its one of my favorite plants, and it just shows how balanced your tank is that it survived the vacation without any apparent damage. IME, its the first plant to suffer from neglect.
