    Oh my word, Natalia! I tune out for a few days and you finish the thing! It looks amazing. Can't wait to see it full. I've found that sometimes a LOT of charcoal can remove tannins fairly fast. Don't know if it will help with the level you're facing.

    What kind of work are you doing these days? You got out of the awful taxi company quite a while back, right?

    I put carbon and purigen and it has cleared up enough where I can see the background again. Am on my way to Madison, WI to the Catfish Cataclysm. Hoping to come home with some honey cats and maybe some plants.

    The drive up to Madison was beautiful! To save some $$$ sis and I decided to commute rater than get a room at the hotel. I have been wanting to get the Centromochlus perugiae-honeycomb catfish for a while now and been waiting for a convention like this to avoid TWS ridiculous shipping.

    We went Friday and were somewhat surprised by the few vendors that were there, only 8 and three had fish. The one Dave's Pleco Caves) told me he had sold his whole group of them before I got there. He was not set up at all, 70% of his stuff still in his boxes. I still got a couple plants and 4 small caves for him for the honeycomb cats to use, i had gotten 2 of them for "free" with my registration.

    Also went to another vendor; Mark of Excellence Aquatics, have gotten plants from him before at great prices at the Greater Chichlid Society Swaps (which are easily 5 times bigger than this convention, minus the speakers and Dutch Auction). Picked up a couple swords for my other 75 tank, and could not say no to a giant piece of spider-wood root for a low $65. Unfortunately I don't have photos of it right now.

    Before I left I asked the club hosting the convention if they knew of anyone who was going to be selling any honeycomb cats, fortunately there was one gentleman who had been successfully breeding them for years and always attended. He hadn't checked in yet, but should be arriving on Saturday. So we went back the next day and a lot of people were selling fish put of their room instead of paying for space for a table. I was happy to see he was there and had the cats at a great price, 10 for $60! He accidentally bagged 7, so I got a better deal, lol. Sis wanted to get some other catfish but they weren't available. she did fall in love with a Synodontis schoutedeni - a big girl

    We are going to set up a 75 as an African tank with congo tetras and her in it. Her name was going to be Hatshepsut, but we stopped at Culver's for lunch on the way home and she thought Crinkle Cut was a better name for her, lol.

    Life has been just crazy lately..

    Grandma is 94 and has been in poor health lately. My Dad isn't taking it well, its a lot of stress on him. I have a ton of stuff to do fish and house wise, but spent a few hours by him on Sat/Sun and will spend some more time there this weekend as well.

    Mom came down with something this weekend and shared it with me so I have been feeling pretty out of it for most of yesterday and today. I feel better for a few hours after lunch then get all run down again when I get home about 6pm.

    125 is still almost cycled, my crypts are in varying stages of melt/recovery and my three Meboldi Lagenandra (crypt like Asian plant) melted to the rhizome-I really hope it comes back.
    I will be testing it tonight, didn't think it would take this long with all of the heavily seeded media I shoved in the corner filter, but it is ~120 some gallons of water, right?

    TWS has a special shipping rate for orders of $175+, only $35! So Sis and i got a list of a couple fish we wanted and emailed an order in Sunday for arrival on Wednesday. After no response I called them today to find out what the heck. supposedly they were still verifying quantity and an eel my sis wanted qas not 100% to be the right species listed. Had I not called who knows if they would have gotten back to me in time to ship this week at all! Now delivery is Thursday, which means the fish sit with me at work all day. If they were delivered Wednesday then Sis would have taken them home since she works till 12pm.

    I got 8 congos, 3 SAE and 3 more forktail loaches. Sis got 15 Blue tetras (was going to get blue loretos but they only had six when I called to confirm the order today) and 3 more curcumcintis "zig zag" eels to add to her group since they will be moving to the upstairs goldfish/dojo tank, which will become a eel and honey gourami tank (need to get some). The dojos are moving downstairs to a 75 with some golden barbs (whenever we get them) and the goldfish are going into a 150 gallon Rubbermaid stock tub which will have a large DIY trickle filter/sump that I have to build this weekend.

    The forktails were going to go in the 125 with all of my kuhli loaches, but since I will be getting the 8" Borneo eel which may eat the smaller loaches I will get some peacock eels (not Macrognathus aral) or some yoyo loaches to go in the 125 instead.

    Sorry if the post is a little crazy, I am still feeling pulled in so many directions and now we may be moving again in a couple years so priority #1 is to get the fish upstairs in a tank downstairs and worry about the other tanks in the future. Feel bad for sis as she doesn't want/need to get the 120 running before the move. Oh look at the time, got to punch out and go home...
