Your tank has really filled in since last pics. It's looking good. What is the green plant in either front corner (a sword? ) ?

the right front corner is a ruffle sword and there is actualy two plants on the left front they were sold to me as dwarf sag that is as high as they get from what i have seen if you want one dave i would be more than willing to send you one of the sags since you sent me some flame moss which has exploded and is now in three of my four tanks

Your tank is looking very nice. It's filled in well and has a good mix of plants.
thank you very much for the compliment cs

I'm glad the Flame Moss has done well for you! :) I must be doing something wrong, because everyone I send moss to has it growing by the ton while mine has been slow (I'm sure it's ferts... ) ;)

Anyhow, hang on to the Dwarf Sag. I'm interested in trying some, but not until I get another tank or do a re-scape. Either of those could be a LONG while. I'm gonna have to actually thin some plants out soon just to make growing room.

Grim, photos look great!

(How long did it take you to upload your whole memory chip to photobucket and paste here? I am sure it takes longer depending on how many photos you have on the chip.)

Grim, if the signature/thread feature still works here on APC like it used to - I look forward to a bunch of threads on all your tanks soon. :smile:

Your tank is looking good. Saw the blooms on your anubias. So neat! I like your skull so much better with the moss on it. Is your snake still in there?

thank you tex gal for the compliment sadly the rope fish jumped ship and my wife found her in the bathroom coiled up on the floor she screamed rather loud i wont lie it was funny but i am currently looking for another one to see if it will live in skull as of now the current resident of the skull is the johanii i also lost the kenyi yesterday she had spooked herself one morning and slammed into the the glass she wasn't swimming to well i moved her to my ten gallon to see if she would recover and in about three days she stopped eating and then died i was even trying to get her to eat frozen food with a small eye dropper

Boy what a time you have had. So sorry. :sorry: They become pets to us, especially when you have just a few very unique fish. Hope you are able to find what you want out there.

Okay. I guess I just have to give this a shot again and see how long it takes me.
I never used to think about it.
I just assumed that since maintaining my tanks takes most of my Saturday that taking more time on the computer would, well - take more time.

I'll give it a shot.

You know that means you will have to come over again so we can learn together all the cool settings on these cool digital cameras to take the best picture. :wink:

Some cameras don't need any adjusting to get a good picture. What camera are you using? To learn more about it you can google it.

What neat fish!! That yellow stripe is so cool. I'm not sure I could stick my hand in the tank with two 8" eels!

Do you breed them? I'd love to hear about that! SO COOL!!!

nice shots grim. I have the g9 and love it as well. For better shots if you stick it in auto mode and turn on flourecent or fish tank mode and then play with the ap and focal lengths you can snap some amazing shots.

First i would like to apologize for the quality of the pictures. I would also like to say sorry for how long it has been since i posted on the site. I was in a car accident and unable to do much of anything so my tanks suffered significantly but i am back and my tanks are recovering.


and a close up of some of the algae i am dealing with.

Davemonky this is your flame moss its the only thing that wasn't affected by my accident and i trimmed a good size handful of it.
