Yeah it's starting to fill in slowly, but it really is a pain to have to start back up after a long hiatus.

Thank you! I'm glad to be back. Since I've been gone I've learned that fish can breed in even the worst conditions and that animating for 11 hours in basement is not fun!

Your tank is looking good! Will look forward to updates.
Thank you for the kind words. The trials of life are unpredictable but always manageable - you just to truck it through! (:

Thank so much! It was a relatively easy build and only cost around $20! I'll post some pictures of the building process in my next update.

Thanks! I really miss my old tank to be honest! But I'm glad it still serves as inspiration to others. You are too kind, but I will definitely keep that in mind! Thanks again (:




The tank is looking pretty okay at the moment. I'm keeping up on water changes which is nice. I've trimmed a bit so that I can start and fill it up a bit more. I recent had a leg injury that has put me out of commission so once I'm %100 again I'll probably do a little rescaping. I'm just not too happy with the layout at the moment. It's hard to keep my hands out of the tank to be honest. (:

I'll be posting pictures tomorrow with a more in-depth update on how everything is coming along. I hope everyone is having a manageable week! In other news - I turn 21 on Thursday!

Want some Cocktail recs?

I'm glad to see you back in the hobby, the progress you showed over the course of your 20L and then this journal was staggering, and I can't wait to see it continue.

Default Quick Update

It seems that I am becoming more accustomed to Denver water. I had trouble growing even algae in it before.

I'm happy with he layout for now. I'll probably be trying to get some livestock in there before the end of the week. It's just not as nice without fish and friends in it! I'm also in the market for some nice hardscape material.

Looks great. Have you considered adding any color?

Oh yes. I'm hoping to trade a friend for some rotala colorata to start off with. I'm not quite sure what else I'll add in - if you have any suggestions I'd appreciate it!

So far ludwigia red is my favorite red plant. It's easy to grow and stays red even for me. It has much smaller leaves than ludwigia glandulosa which is another favorite.
