So I've decided to give my girls names... I wanted something to call them. I can always change them later if I want, right? I don't think they would be TOO offended :p

Lotus


Colors are showing much better :) She's got a nice iridescence.

Okami


Her fins are still a bit beat up but she's so cute. She always peeks out from behind those plants every time I approach the tank!

Stella


She's the fiesty one. Fins are looking better already. She is never hiding. The other two quite enjoy their plants but Stella acts like she doesn't even have one :p She is always trying to catch somebody's attention.

EDIT: Oh, yes. More pictures here.

So I really need to find a way to keep these critter keepers from tipping over. The lids make it near impossible to clip them to the side of the tank and the fact that they kind of tip over makes it so I can only fill them 3/4 full and it make water changes difficult -_-

What ab9ut a placement rack made out of craft mesh? Just cut the mesh big/long/wide enough to fit your tank (or tie pieces together with fishing line to make it fit) and cut holes for teh critter keepers.

Oh, that's a good idea! I've never thought of that... Where do I get craft mesh, though? I only have a Walmart around here.

IN the craft section of walmart you can find it, near the yarn and embroidery boards. And it's super cheap. Fishing line in sporting goods, or also in crafts (near the beads) nylon cord which works good too.

Lol, I use it for my hammocksm, custom tank covers and the divider in the 10g ^^;

Hmm! You should find something that'll float the mesh tho, then you dont have to fit it to the tank, but it'll stay upright. Like...hmm...bah, go with balloons in sandwhich bags - or just air-filled sandwhich bags! Should be safer and low cost =D

Maybe I could use fishing line to keep the craft mesh at a certain level by taping it to the sides of the tank and then kind of make a shelf of sorts to set them on. I need to keep them off the bottom of the tank since the heater is underneath them, otherwise I would just lower the water level lol.

The cheapest fishing line they have is called monofilament fishing line... Are they all made out of that? Are they all safe?
