Looks good! Did you go with the Marineland 10? How is that working for you? I have one of the sucky Tetra 2-10's in mine and would like to upgrade eventually :P (Hopefully before winter arrives!)
Funny how the ones marketed for reptiles are cheaper, when it's the exact same thing! I felt pretty clever when I figured that out, LOL

I did some major cleaning in Ammo's tank after a recent algae invasion, and added two apple snails (I had to put Ammo in his cup for a day & night so they could do some work without him picking on them, silly boy)... also made some other adjustments (lowered the light period and temperature) and it is doing good so far!



I also took out some of the rocks that didn't have any moss attached to them, just seemed like they were magnets for a place for the algae to attach itself to, and it doesn't look too "empty" without them in there :)
Thinking about getting some black cardstock or posterboard and experimenting with backgrounds on both of my tanks... hmmm.

New tank for Mowgli

I just got a new veiltail and have set up this home for him. He's pretty shy so far, so he has lots of places to hide. :) I also set up my first filter baffle (using an aquarium sponge/filter) in this tank and it is working great.

Probably not. I ordered mine from Petco.com, I don't think they have them in the store. (Not the one near me, anyway). It was $40.

It's been a long time. Gyarados' water got really cloudy for a while and I was trying so hard to figure out what caused it. I saw the little blue shark's paint was bubbling, so I removed him and got blue fingers. It was definitely bleeding. It still didn't clear up, discovered the skull's paint was bleeding too! So I took all of the Walmart decorations out of the tank and replaced the skull with this bell!



The edges around the holes needed to be shaved down and evened out because they were very sharp, but once we finished modifications it's all good and Gyarados is thrilled with his new hiding place. He's even coming out to see us more now.
