    How's Mr. BGK doing?
    Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.

    Aw man, I didn't ever notice these posts... Sorry, gentlemen!

    So, figured I'd update this journal with a pretty impressive rescape. The crypts, alone, were a massive undertaking. I'll have to go back and verify, but I want to say I started off with three or four crypts. Last night, when I was pulling them all up and replanting, I started to lose count at fifty. I don't have an official tally, but I'm guessing I replanted somewhere around seventy crypts last night, and I have the video to prove it haha

    I still have to edit and upload the video, but that probably wont happen until later this evening. Question for y'all: Would you rather I uploaded an uncut vid so you can watch the animals playing around and investigating what their keeper is doing in their home? Or do you want it short and sweet, cut and shortened to just highlights with some time lapse in there?

    Some teaser shots until I can work on the video.

    Oh! I also grabbed some more vid of the BGK, Larry :) Will upload that today when I'm at work.

    Personally, I like short and sweet...I did some plant culling this weekend, shame to throw away healthy plants, but there's just SO MANY of them, lol

    I like short and sweet, as well haha

    Yeah, the plants were a bit ridiculous. I still have a 3g bucket filled with hygros that I need to figure out what to do with... @Spardas, you had told me you grind up your trimmings to feed back to your fish. Do you just let them bake in the sun to dry them out, first, or do you use an oven or something weird like that?

    Nice haul of crypts. That is interesting that Spardas feeds the fish with his culling. Am interested in how he does that too.

    You've got some fabulous looking plants to play around with! I'm also looking forward to the 'short and sweet' tale of where they went.

    I'd bet it took awhile for you to tug out all those root systems, with 70 plants!

    Actually, it took me about 5 minutes to pull them all up. That ^^ second photo of all the crypts bundled together, that's how 80% of the crypts were. Just huge groups of plants, all tangled together. Pulling took about 5 mins and planting took only 10, but there was about an hour of sitting on the floor over a bucket, separating all the crypts so I could replant them, being as careful as possible not to damage the plants too badly.

    So a little bundle like this:

    WP_20170911_015[1].jpg

    Would break up into these:

    WP_20170911_017[1].jpg

    This PITA right here:

    WP_20170911_008[1].jpg

    Yielded a whopping 27 individual plants:

    WP_20170911_012[1].jpg

    I'm off to go digging in the journal to see if I can find out how many crypts I started off with.

    Another jaw-dropping fact; those 70 or so crypts, those aren't even all the crypts in the tank, I still have another 20-30 in the tangle of crap on the left side, as well haha

    Well, couldn't find any photos to back up the claim, at least not here in my journal (might have some saved on my home computer), but per this update post from last year, I started off with only two crypts planted in that corner.

    Those two yielded all this*:

    *plus the twenty or so that I didn't touch last night
