Move back to college.. successful!!

So I am back in College Station, TX at Texas A&M Univ. and my tanks some how made it back. The water is softer here than Dallas so I hope my plants grow like they did up there. My few cherries and my otto made it the 3 and a half hour drive and ate lunch with me in Wendy's.... The Blyxa in my 2.5g needed to be replanted anyways so this was the perfect time to do it. Though it was about to bloom flowers so that made me a little mad. My .9g (which is an experiment) also fared well. I planted some wild dwarf hairgrass I found at a lake and it has been growing like mad and I get new blades popping up everyday. Anyways here are some pics of how they sit now. Ignore the particles floating in the .9g. I was trying to rebury some roots of the hairgrass since the aqua soil shifted.

That little 5g is pretty amazing. I really like the DIY stand for it.

Glad to hear your success and your tanks look great for ones that just got packed up and restarted!

I'm doing the same thing tomorrow with my 20 long. All the plants, gravel, shrimp, etc have been packed up and will depart in the morning but I'm only making an hour and a half drive to school (big improvement from my undergrad school which was 5 hours away...).

Tank: 20 gallons, 62 watts t5, DIY CO2

Unemployed, poor, and still living off the parents.

lol its a 2.5g, but I have had people tell me it looks like a 10g. The small .9g looks better in person. It is really just a mess around tank. As you can see there is a java fern leaf in there I am trying to bring back to life and the riccia was ust tied down 2 days ago so I am waiting for it to come out.

Looks good, glad to see they made it safely. Gives me hope for my 29g I'm moving in two weeks up to FSU. I love the little tank next to your couch.
