Magnum, I'd love to send you some anubias and java fern, etc. Not like I don't have a stack to spare, ha. PM me your addy and I'll get around to it in a week or so, once I sort them out a bit. You'd actually be doing me a favour, as there's way too many plants in the pleco's plastic holding tank.. they might not be liking the lack of light in the laundry and with Daughter's birthday coming up soon I won't be able to afford a new tank set-up before November. Throw me some $ for postage, and Bob's your uncle.
Water change day today, and I'm putting Demyx in a 3 gallon kritter keeper thingy to see how he does in that. I aim to slowly upgrade him to Aang's old 8 gallon, once I upgrade Aang in a few weeks.
No new pics yet, as all the tanks are a bit of a mess still from the move and I am still at a loss for where to put them all permanently. Cole's tank is the only one I've found the perfect place for, and it looks great where it is. I need to think about where to put the 3ft when I replace that..
Cleo's still looks great (it's a moss and susswassertang factory, apparently, being ready for another moss cull already) but I'd like to move it across the other side of the kitchen, which I might do today.
Just a word on sponge filters: they rock.
I haven't had any problems whatsoever with them, and they work a treat. The water quality is brilliant, they are easy to clean (give 'em a squish, voila!) and they provide aeration as well as surface motion.
Went to dinner last night with the out-laws (my ex's parents) and Very Cool Uncle (the ex's brother) and his partner. Daughter had a lovely time playing with her uncle's new Jack Russel x Mini Fox terrier pup, which is 9 weeks old and omg-adorable.
On the way home, we listened to a great Aussie rock band from Brisbane called Rollerball --- I was an instant fan, and Very Cool Uncle gave me the CD which was nice of him.
How I did not know about this band before, I do not know! I feel terribly deprived. Here's some songs I found on Youtube..
loud, heavy awesome Australian rock music ahead!
