Tank(s) look nice. You might want to list what they are and/or put them in separate journals.
When I say what they are it might include a list of what ferts/light you have/use in each.

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

Nice Easter Island head! This looks like a fun tank, is that a volcano bubbler? My kids would like that. What's in the small tank below the big one? I see a sponge filter, is there shrimp?
I see you've re-done this big tank three times recently. My first tank was like that, so crazy, within a month I rearranged it three times. Since then nothing crazy. My next tanks were a lot more stable compared to the first when it came to the arrangement/scape.

Newest update on gold laser corydoras . A lot has died off . But still have some fighting strong . Maybe 25/30 and a few guppy babies that sneaked in from the move lol. Also now have all the adult gold lasers in a tank by them selves as they are spawning a lot . Will show some pics .
