    Nope. I'm not going to change it for about three weeks at which time it will only be partial. I realize it isn't ideal but it literally took all day to bring that creek water up and I'm not going to put him through that again. I don't know if you can't tell from the pic but the creek is a good quarter mile away from my house and those tanks weigh about 250 pounds each with no water.

    That being said, I figure if the water isn't exactly back to normal in three weeks that a partial with double Prime dosage will keep them safe.

    Hi everyone!!!!

    I'm back for a bit. :) My little one is three months old now and I'm finding that having time to mess with my tank has given me the bug again. Lol!

    So yesterday I completely stripped the tank and rearranged the plants. I'm having to dry out my wood and rocks because it's all COVERED in java moss and it just got to where it looks really messy.

    Does anyone have any tips for removing the moss quickly and affectively so that it won't grow back? I'm done with the stuff! Lol!!!

    So the tank doesn't look very pretty at the moment, but I'm sure I'll get it back in ship shape soon.

    Congratulations on the birth of your child, and welcome back, we missed you :) I have nothing to suggest on the java moss but I'm sure somebody will "chime in".

    Like Lee said, we've missed you around here! Very happy to see you're back and I hope you can make it a regular thing, again. Congrats on your baby (boy? girl?)! I hope everything went well. =]

    You know, I had the same experience with java moss. That stuff can get everywhere and cling onto things like there's no tomorrow. I eventually removed it from every tank I had it in. Unfortunately, I don't have any tricks of getting all of it out of your tank, save for maybe trying to siphon whatever you see out. As for the driftwood, just let it dry out. It should crisp up after a few days and you could probably wash off the dead moss. Use maybe an old tooth brush to get the tough stuff off.

    I still find single strands of java moss in a couple of my tanks. Not enough to make a mess. I've since started tieing it down really tight to whatever I want to attach it to, such as shrimp/pleco caves. Otherwise, I don't use the stuff.

    Hey you two!

    Nice to hear from the both of you. I hope to be able to make this a more regular thing again as well. :) I have a ton of work to do to my tank including building the stock back up after my horrible crash in January.

    Kevin, I had no idea that stuff would become such a problem. UHG!

    Also -- we had a girl. She was born April 2 and her name is Allison (Alice) Italy Roe.

    My main concern is keeping it from growing back. I thought about soaking the wood in bleach or something, but then of course I run the risk of seriously messing up my tank if I don't get it all out of the wood after. Looks like I'm going to have to suck it up and put in the elbow grease.

    Nice! Very pretty name. =]

    I was going to suggest a bleach dip, but the same thought came to mind. lol You could rinse it really well with water and then let it dry out afterward, but I think it takes between 24-48hrs for chlorine to evaporate. Still a risk, though, unless you overdose with prime/safe.

    Awww! You guys always think about me. :) Nice to hear from you FM!!! You always make me smile.

    *Tank Update

    *sighs* I'm still working on removing all the java moss. I've got a few of my pieces fairly clear and back in the tank, but my large pieces of wood are going to take FOREVER! My husband suggested removing it with a pressure washer. Sounded great to me BUT apparently the washer needs a new string or something.

    YAY!

    I brought home two beautiful baby roseline sharks today. My goodness those boogers are expensive!!!

    I paid $15 a piece for them. As soon as we can we're going to go back and buy two more. I think I'm going to stick with just 4 instead of a full 6. The store has a few that are full size and I am really worried about 6 of those guys just being too much when they grow out. So hopefully they'll be happy in a mini group of four.

    Good for you. I love roseline sharks! And I have a feeling you'd be okay with 6 :o) if you decided to get 4 more.
