Oh it looks sooo good now! (:
I wish my 10gal could look that good.

It looks like you rearranged a bunch of plants! I'm stealing your leftovers!

All I really did was move the decor so you could actually see it and organized the plants - like I put all the swords together and gave them a root tab. The only thing I removed were the ones that were going soggy on me.
There is also a thing of mopani wood but its still hidden by the plants.

Some plants do good and others - they go soggy or get this black stuff on them.

The light strip only covers 1/2 the tank so I wanted to have all the higher light plants together...

Bekah, you always post the cutest pics! :P

And Tiki- the after DEF. looks soo much nicer! :)

I woke up at 4:30 am after an insomnia-filled night and started cleaning the house. I even raked the backyard of its leaves.

Now just waiting for the BF to come home with some carpet cleaner cus the dog threw up again. On the carpet. She always runs to the carpet to throw up and hardly ever the easy-to-clean wood floors.. >:/

And then the plumber is coming too.

Thanks :) I like the more red like plants and the foxtails but I think they need high light. The foxtails do alright but they grow so tall, I have to keep pulling them out and trimming off the dead lower part of them.

I have

amazon swords X 4
Ozolot sword that is like taller then my tank
red foxtail
green foxtail
some kind of tiny crypt plant
dwarf hairgrass
some kind of pennywort type of plant
Ludwigia
cabomba
wysteria
anubias - small round left kind and a taller, narrow leaf
java fern

I have been awak since 4:30 AM too but I see no reason to sleep normally since I got laid off

Many of my scaly friends from my original tank from 2011 have passed, except for two! I am in the process of re-doing my tank. :)

Tiki, I kind of like the jungle mess look! lol But you're fix up job is exceptional :)
The little albino hamster *grabs and stuffs into mouth* It's so cute!! And small. And fit-in-my-mouthable.
Bekah, I want you to post a GIF everyday. Life purpose just hit you hard. That pool was incredible too! I just cannot imagine swimming with a koi and not playing Jaws. That, or power kicking a fish to death while I thrash/swim.

Thanks. :3

Reading Daniels Story. So sad...

Sakura, did you mention pearl s buck? I love the good earth! It was amazing. One m and my mums favourite books. If you like her books, then you should check out anything by rohinton mistry. I am almost done a fine balance. It's huge... 754 pages I believe.
