Lovely tank, man!

Thanks... I'm still trying to figure out how to boil that bad boy.

I have too many plants and big dreams... I am debating if DSM makes sense for me with what plants I have on hand (all submersed) - must buy more plants!

I'll probably end up talking myself out of it soon enough, I just need to procrastinate a bit more so the pendulum can come full swing.

ps. Nice banner Brian! If that career in web design doesn't work out you'll have a job as a forum logo maker for sure

^ Daymn, I dig that scape! Those rocks in front are eye catching, it's got a nice focal point to it. Are they Ryuo rocks?

Sorry, getting rid of 60-P. I'll have to quit the club. See my journal if you're wondering why.

Sorry to hear you go... I read your last few posts but don't understand what you're saying. What came down? How did it ruin the floor? Huh?

I accidentally siphoned out 10 gallons with a towel, making the HOBs waterfall and destroy the scape.

^ Once a 60P member, always a 60P member. You're bounce back, the nice thing about this hobby is that your next tank will always be better.
