90-gallon for a case or beer. Can you introduce me to your friends?

Seriously, though, nice tank. even "un-scaped" it looks pretty good.

Not a problem sir, and if your going to RAOK a pleco, def look into how to ship. If its to complicated see if any pet stores will take the guy for some credit you could use towards otos, SAE, or something else.

Thanks for the suggestion about looking up how to ship & checking with my lfs. I appreciate the input.

Preuss Pets is going to help with rehoming my pleco. Then I can get something more appropriately sized for my aquarium.

Looking at using some of the extra rocks I have to create a terrace in the back left of the tank for African Water ferns

Excellent news for the pleco

I love terraced scapes! What kind of stone do you have in mind for it?

I have some petrified wood & lava-type rocks that came with the tank that I'm going to use for both creating the terrace & anchoring the water fern. I'll move the driftwood with the anubias to the back right of the tank & rearrange a couple crypts so I don't hurt them. Probably going to get the pot-caves out of there & make more hidey-holes with rock & driftwood.

This gives me the excuse to get the rest of the plastic plants out of the tank!

Also lets me play with crazy glue & stacking rocks - simple entertainment is best, right? Add a glass or two of wine to the mix & it could get interesting!

I can tell you're my kind of people. Sounds like a fun evening some time, I can't wait to see what comes of it!

Expecting a package soon with 2 rhizomes of African Water Fern and one next week with two small albino bristle nose plecos to take the place of the common pleco I'm rehoming. Haven't tried ordering through the for sale or trade forums before. Should be interesting to see how things come out. So far, it's been a relatively painless process but I don't have everything in the tank yet.

Working this weekend on removing the "caves" from the tank and rescaping the back corners into terraces with suitable pleco caves. I've got an idea in mind to help the terraces stay where I put them. I'll let you all know how it goes!

So, my African Water Ferns arrived & assumed their position in the tank (see left) with a little rescape. Pleco goes to Preuss Pets tomorrow. Picking up 6 more cardinals & 1 or 2 anubias for the back left like the ones I moved to back right.

6 more cardinals, anubias congentis (back left), anubias nana (front left), Christmas moss on the driftwood in the back & rearranged the water wisteria after tearing most of it up chasing the pleco to rehome! Very healthy fish- took 30 minutes of chase to wear him out enough I could catch him! Also picked up some floaters - dwarf water lettuce, red root floater & duck weed that my fish have already polished off. Other than cleaning & fertilizing, I think I'm done for a while! Time to let things settle in for a bit. Add the plecos next week & call it good. Time to find my good camera & get some better shots.
