    Nice Crypts, Hornwort and Ramshorns

    Met up with Pwilly07 today, picked up some plants and snails. Found an added bonus, a tiny fry when draining the bag of Hornwort into the net. Picked out some baby snails and the fry appears to be a "Guppy". It's swimming around the tank all by itself, no predators. Let' see if it survives? All...

    Aquarium Planter Idea

    Visited my LFS today. Looking around, they just moved to a new building. I saw a planter not on top of aquarium but inside. I thought what a "Unique" idea. It had the output filter tube attached to the back of the planter. Here are some pics. I just might give it a go.

He explained he adds a few to the bags of fish to negate the ammonia build-up which can occur. He has used...

    Clown Loach playing "Opossum"

    I know it has been mentioned on other threads, but... Last night looked over at the tank and there was a Clown laying almost upside down, not moving at all. Got up to check and still no movement. My first thought was "Oh! No". About 30 seconds watching and then it swam away. Geez! LOL
