Oh, and thanks for the compliment on Becoming. That tank has been my baby. . . I'm obsessed with her (yes, my tank is a her) and I've always thought your tank was nice with all the Java ferns and moss in there. Naturally planted tanks can be tricky, but if you figure out the right balance - and manage to KEEP it there - everything runs smoothly, more or less. It's that essential balance that can be a trick to get.
Frecks really does seem to be loving all the room to play around in . . . That video was taken in the first few days of him being in the tank, it was really amazing to see how he actually had to 'learn' how to swim across such a long/tall tank, and his swimming has really gotten MUCH stronger over the few weeks that he's been in there. It's pretty amazing. You can see him in the full tank shot kind of flipping back and forth on his way across the tank - he doesn't do that nearly as much anymore.
As far as the current is concerned *giggle* It caught him by surprise over the first few days or so - the HOB filter on the 10g was always set a a low output, and the surface kept fairly calm and covered with floating plants - WAY different from the canister filter in the bigger tank. But it's amazing how quickly he figured out where the surface is calmer, like the 'dead' spot behind the spraybar, and found all of the places at the surface where he can chill out - like the driftwood that goes to the top of the tank and the floating plant-ball. At this point he often can be found intentionally (looks that way to me!) 'riding' the current to the opposite side of the tank - and he's sure to stay under it on his way back - IF he isn't fooling around and playing in it, that is. So neat to watch him interacting with the community, though I still have my reservations about keeping him in with the rams, so far so good, and he WILL give 'em a nip if they bug him. He's tougher than I realized! Fingers crossed that all goes well, the 10g is up and running still if I should need it. :)
