Thanks for the heads up on the orchids and the pitchers! I just might have to explore that option when I've got a little more time to dedicate to them! I have to admit that m potted plants are rather neglected as of late and I lost a bunch of pepper plants in the recent past. I was growing the Ghost, Trinidad Marunga Scorpion, some habaneros and, of course, the Hawaiian chili pepper.
Due to limited space, I've only got one rack running with two 40B tanks. My gf runs the top tank and it's doing pretty good, actually. I have the lower tank and it, too has signs of neglect. I've got to dedicate a little more time to balance it out as I recently converted to LED lighting from T5HO's. I kinda knew it was gonna happen and had planned on doing it when I was ready, but when it came time to change bulbs again, I just had to pull the trigger on some LEDs that were just too good of an opportunity to pass up.
It's been a while since I went to the Aquarium Society meetings. I think the last time I went, it was back in the early 1990's! I used to have a lot of tanks running back then and I was into african cichlids, discus and synodontis. I was also trying my hand at pseudomugils as well. I also had some PDF and some phelsuma that I managed to catch locally.
Happy Hump Day!
