Everything is going good, I got 8 new Crypt Spiralis for free, for putting the mothers into ICU in my tanks. Sometimes working as the only person in a small store that knows anything about plants has its perks. I have tried those in the tubes before, in my experience the plants by the time they get home are in such bad shape that they never last long. I will be interested in knowing how that one works for you.

ah, you see i knew that eco complete sounded really good, but the bag size didn't really work out for me. 2 bags was too much and 1 wasn't enough. well what do you think about Flourish as my liquid fertilizer. well, see you around!

Loachy here
Heres a vote for you my new friend.I see you were talking about our sons message.He has the spike and balloon fantasy tanks.your pics are very nice.Love the clown loach too.We only have one though but he has a yo yo loach and an angelicus loach to play with so he's not lonely.Our son just put new pics up on the balloon fantasy tank today.We went to the fish store yesterday but only ended up getting him some.We just didn't see anything right now we wanted to put in our setup.They had a bunch of tanks coverd up so they got new additions in.Maybe when we go back in a week or two they'll have them displayed and might be what were looking for.Take care now my new friend.See ya.

Still trying to figure this out!
Ok well I am still atempting to figure out this site, so its slow but happening. Ok now to answer questions, I am using a 130 watt Compact Flourescent and I have added on a 40 watt standard from time to bring up the total to 170 watts. And yes the moonlights are Lunar links, They are great little moon lights. They have even fallen into the tank before while I was running some maintenance, they were turned on, and nothing happened. So they are at the least water resistant. (Back when I installed them One fell in and was submerged for a few minutes I got it out and let it dry and it worked fine.)
