    My 65g finally has its intended inhabitants and is stocked to plan! Just got my babies in yesterday!
    (Thanks Rouge!)

    2 blue smokies) omg I love them) and 2 red koi. Contact gave me a freeB koi.... S that's 5 babies total. They are about quarter size, thou one of the smokies is a bit bigger.

    I'll try and get better pics later, but I wanted to get something up since I was apparently breaking the new fish rules. Hahaha! If I didn't do this soon I'd get reported for sure :) I'm thinking I was sent the shy guys thou. You. Should see them dart from the camera! It's hysterical. Frustrating. But hysterical! I'll update more pics when they decide to cooperate :) I hope I got all 5 of them in these pics somehow...

    Oh ya :) 3 out of 4 tanks have some in there. Floating in the hex (the snails decided to try and sink it on me this morning lol).... planted in the cube and planted in the 65g. I'm sure I will soon have a pennywort jungle like you. LOL! It's my new favorite plant.

    Okay, finally got around to this. Sorry for the delay!
    Got a couple full tank pictures too. These were taken right after a water change, so I got a lot o 'new water' bubbles in there.

    So while I'm at it... I have a kind of related question. Now that you can see my full tank, can anyone tell me if slate like that can cause any cloudy issues with water? I do a weekly water change of about 40% and shortly after I added that slate (a number of weeks ago) I noticed that this tank is not nearly as clear as my other tank with a similar canister filter on it (other tank has smaller version... see my profile). I have noticed some color changes with the rock. If you look really close, some of the top pieces in my bridge/stack design now have some white marks on them. I have some marbeled rock in another tank that I got from a local LFS that has not done this. Thou, I don't think that stuff is slate. And the slate was purchased off of Amazon in a posting particularly for aquarium use. Maybe I'm jumping to conlusions.

    So the full tank shots are suffering from new water bubbles and a slight cloudiness..... andddd the pics were taken with a phone. LOL

    Full tank shots:

    My favie blue smokie :)
