My cories are being cute, and snarfing around the sand. i wish i could snuggle a fish.

Silver - from what I have heard, they only nom nom on dead or decaying plants. My mystery snail isn't in the 20g. he was not very active in it and was always with the trapdoor shut so I moved him into the "snail" tanks and he is much more active. I wonder if the mopani wood alters the chemistry so that the snails dont like it? I only see them wandering around AFTER water changes....

As for filters, I think I want to go with an Aquaclear 30-60 gallon filter.
I like that they have the seperate removable sponge, carbon and bio balls thing but I dont like the $35 price tag

live plants:

Night Silver!

Tiki, it looks beautiful! Ba Sing Se looks very handsome.

Mopani wood probably lowers the hardness and the pH, which may be why they don't like it.

This was me 7 years ago(it started long before that though). Nothing has changed. Seek help! I never grew up with the ability to talk to anybody in person. My parents were weird about things and because of public school, I never caught on to keeping friends. Therefore, not much was stable in my life and I shut it all in. Now I have bad anxiety and tension. I relieve it with magazine techniques and natural medicines....
Acupuncture?? I'd love to try it!! Even have a referral from the doctor but keep forgetting to call. I'm also covered by my school for some (maybe).. Needs to go before January when the referral expires.
Sakura, that bike sounds cool!! Mine is too big for me (well, I raised the seat too high). My experience with store bikes is the seats feel like rape. (not appropriate, I apologize) They just make bike riding extremely uncomfortable. We found seats at walmart or zellers from "mongoose" which are very soft and bouncy :)
You're getting it for Christmas? Can't wait to see!! Mine is a Mongoose bike. Not sure on the specs and it's PINK!!!! ermagherd!!!

I have tons of friends, I have no trouble talking to people at all, even strangers... It's more when I'm left alone with my thoughts. :(
