The shelf is awesome, I wish I had an inch or two more wiggle room though, but it's all good.I had that exact shelf in my apartment. Very sturdy.
If you're still thinking of a taller background plant, I've got a new recommendation: mayaca. Fast growing and easy to please, looks delicate, bright green color.
I have no idea, actually. I haven't seen any more babies, but they might be hiding in the HM jungle.How is the baby snowball? Did it survive?
