Whew, so I know I don't have much of a fan base reading this, but sorry for the departure anyway! Life has just been busy busy. But I'm back, and with more poor quality pictures! Huzzah!
So first up, some crappy pics of the new 6.6 I got. Naturally I realized that I forgot to get a thermometer, so I haven't moved Bauer in yet... But I guess that's ok, give some time for the soil to settle and not leech as much ammonia. Considering taking one from another tank, since the temps have been stable for a while, but there's always a risk of heater failure, sooo I dunno. There are some MTS and Rams (mostly or only pink) and I did see a pond snail or two who must have come in on the new plants. The moss is having a bit of trouble adjusting, so a lot of my moss trees have gone brown :( Some of the plants have had a good amount of growth already, the cabomba especially. I SWEAR it looks nicer in person! Much more depth, and not just like crap thrown all together. Oh well. Need a better camera! Maybe with xmas money...
The floaters I may remove once the tank is stable. There is anachris, purple cabomba, limnophilia sessiflora, naesea sp red, alt. reineckii, red crypt wendtii, rotala, ludwigia repens, micro sword, dwarf baby tears, and the moss trees, I think that's everything....
Here is Pinkman's 6.6 long. I redid all of the tanks when setting up the new one, and he seems to LOVE the big new driftwood. He's always sleeping or hiding behind it, and around the sponge filter, and comes running out as soon as he notices someone approaching. It's pretty cute.
And lastly the 10 gal, which Bauer will get moved out of soon and it will be an invert only tank. He now however does live pretty peaceably with the shrimp, and I had seen A LOT of berried ladies, so hopefully the babies are surviving and hiding in the cholla, as I haven't seen many brand new babies, but I think I have noticed a lot more youngsters than I remember.

Bauer, always looking for organisms to nom on the plants/wood
It seems so lonely without my Mystery bunch around :( Want to get replacements soon, but worry about shipping in the cold season.
