Hanky - Great! I believe we have an Ace somewhere around here so I'll have to check it out :)

Actually just letting the cup sit in indirect sunlight for a few days with QT the marimo just fine. You can change out the water with some tank water by turkey baster, if you like. But you have the right idea. Once you get a healthy environment never introduce something with QT.

Awesome! I still have my hornwort sitting in a bowl of water by the window so I'll leave the marimo next to him :)

And yes, I've heard some bad things about not QTing new additions so I don't want to risk anymore problems than I already have D:

Update on Ro - still doing good and eating. Nothing with her fin has changed and there is no sign of browning like there was with Fus, so I'm convinced she caught it on something.

She is flashing/rubbing, however, which worries me, but I'm getting help from the GAB so hopefully I can clear up whatever is bothering her.

Might be getting the tank soon! I posted a "wanted" ad in the Boston section of Craigslist because I go to school in Newton on Mondays and Wednesdays and I got back a lot of replies!

One guy has a 55 gallon, with the stand and lots of accessories that he is willing to sell to me for only $50! Just waiting to see if he has any pictures and where he is located. Also gotta hope the tank fits in my car.... might have to come back for the stand on Wednesday lol.

So far she's doing good. Whenever I walk into the room, she's not clamping. As soon as I stick my face near the tank to watch her, she clamps. Will they clamp if they are nervous? I would feel much better knowing that was the reason for her clamping, but it still doesn't explain the flashing I've been seeing every so often.

$50 is a complete steal for a 55 gallon, I hope you get it. Also I hope Ro is feeling better.

Be a master of water and the fish will follow
