    Sometimes hard to work myself up to it, but I did water changes on 4 tanks yesterday (40b, 25g, and two 20g), cleaned all filter media, some plant trimming, etc. Took 2 hrs to complete the 1st...

    I agree on getting the plants in there. Having some cover does a lot to lessen stress on certain species. Even the driftwood will provide some cover.

    You did a very nice job with the narration. The few uhs and ums that there were did not distract at all - that's just the way many of us speak. Good job and nice walk through of your tank.
