Haha, thanks. Less about patience, more about addiction to internet research. I'll be starting a new thread for the 20G shrimparium - just got the plants yesterday!

I want to highlight that 50G is really not that large from a viewing perspective...only 3' long, and when you are primarily viewing from the back (sitting at my desk) and the 3-stack of 2" plumbing is in the way...ya, definitely doing minimum 180G next time. Even from the front, just not that much space to fit everything.

Hum, after reading some on trimming, I think it's clear why my plant growth has been kinda lame. I don't think I've ever trimmed them...just when they reached the surface.

Some interesting reading/viewing material:

Random update. Pond snails have appeared seemingly from nowhere...but that's cool - cleaning crew and whatnot.

ALSO...!...discovered baby platies in the sump! One is ~1cm long, the other is half that size. Assuming they are still alive because fish no longer 'take the ride' to join them. Will have to read up on how big they need to be prior to a rescue operation.

ALSO......!...shrampies! Still alive! In the sump! Boggles the mind...haven't seen one in many months - it's one of the Amanos I got...can't even remember when. It was cold out. So long time now. Yep, still alive and just shramping along.

I will post some pics.

Pics...
EDIT: Ugh...I really need to spend more time taking pictures. So underexposed.









The tank after some pruning and new plants. Interestingly after I did the big prune of jungle val, it never really went back to crazy growth like before.
