Alrighty, still can't get in to the hard drive with all of my stuff on it, but here are some new pics anyway. Can't edit them so they're not the best lol
I moved the largest fry in to the 40 last night. Instantly disappeared in to all the plants and I haven't seen it since lol. Hopefully it's ok.
Here are those wonder shells I mentioned before. They're supposed to be good for about a month and from what I've read, you only need about half the amount the instructions call for. I bought a pack with a giant one, a large one and then 3 small ones like the photo. The first ones I got were just 2 packs of the small ones and they've dissolved a good bit. They don't seem to be hurting anything though and they're not too expensive so I'll keep using them.

Just think it's cute how the barbs like hiding under this crypt. There are so many places to hide out, but they pick the plant that's right up front lol
Lazy hotdogs doing what they do when not searching for food
Pretty little huntress. I wish I could release more of the babies in to the tank but she is EVERYWHERE in the tank and squeezes in to all the little nooks and crannies. I even spotted her right in the middle of the thick potato roots lol. Love her!
And 40g overall is doing a little better. Still getting hair algae, but I'm guessing the reduced light time is helping to keep it somewhat under control. And while the dwarf sag is growing and spreading in this tank, any debris clings on to it like crazy. Makes clean up somewhat easier but still annoying b/c I don't think this tank will ever have a nice clean look lol.
And yeah... that's it so far. Going to have to do bucket water changes in the 40... at least when I vacuum up the gunk. Don't want the little baby to get sucked up and dumped outside without me knowing about it.
