    If someone saw you in real life, they definitely wouldn't imagine you're at home doing aquascape meticulously for hours on end, lol.
    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.

    Hahahahaha 100% correct. Some of my coworkers know that I keep some tanks and will "oooo" and "aaaah" when they see photos, but they have no idea how much time and effort goes into it.

    I have so many friggin' projects I wanna start up that my head is spinning. I want to get a SpecV tank set up here at my office, I want to get the Fluval Evo 13.5 so I can get a little nano tank going and start playing around with live rock/sand etc. and get familiar with maintaining a salt setup. Once I feel like I have that down I can start working on the seahorse tank I've been discussing with you.

    I would also like to do a MASSIVE overhaul on the 90g. Strip everything out of it and redo the entire tank with new plants and hardscape elements. I'm tired of using plain ol' sand. PFS is a great cheap option, but after my experiences with quality substrates I just don't want to deal with it anymore. I think I could get some amazingly healthy and beautiful plants going with about 20lbs of Flourite sand capped with 60lbs of Amazonia normal type and then a thin layer of the Amazonia powder type on top. The substrate, alone, for that project would probably end up costing more than this entire setup haha My Amazon wishlist has probably around $750 worth of stuff for my current and future projects, and that doesn't even include the cost of animals/corals/plants.

    Thanks, Nat! It's been a fun little project, for sure.

    Was greeted with this happy little sight when I got home from work last night. The new rotala seems to be taking to its new tank well :)

    Now that I can start a tank without fish I may give stem plants a try (again) in my 55 gallon. Without the corys, loaches and Ghost pulling them out nightly-they may have a chance to get a good set of roots, lol.

    I'll tell you this, planting stems in an established carpet was AMAZING. No fooling around with trying to keep the tweezers from pulling the stem back out as you're removing the tweezers, the roots from the carpet kept the substrate from moving so you're not having to try to push the substrate back around the stem after pushing it in, and the dense roots holds even a bare stem nice and snug so it won't come floating back out.

    I'm actually planning on doing a dutch-style scape with mostly stems in the 90g this time around. Something like this:

    eddd36c046_dsc02155_crop.bf48a0db212adf29633f81a3971e343a.jpg

    I want lots of rotala, bacopa, and ludwigia species. Maybe some hygrophila pinnatifida.

    YUP that all I tried with the stems and the look I wanted too. Would love to try again-that will be fantastic in a 90!

    Eheim 2213 is now on the tank. Can't believe I had people telling me to toss a 2215 on there! The 2213 is already borderline with being too strong. I'm hoping that once it gets gunked up the flow will die down a bit. If not, I'll have to drill some more holes in the spray bar to lessen the pressure coming out.

    Now that the Eheim is in place I have gone ahead and ordered these beauties this morning from my favorite shrimp vendor, SoShrimp.

    I felt like my 2217 was too much for my 55 but after a few weeks it was perfect. I'm actually thinking about adding a bit more flow because of my hardscape but that's yet TBD.

    I have been considering some black shrimp, I think they and the carbon rilli are beautiful shrimp!
