Alrighty right! I did some big time fixing up of the tropical tank today. Removed the whisper in tank filter that was on Cid's side and replaced it with a 100gph HOB. Now he has a lot more room, it seems. Cut some small holes in the divider screen, for some reason the neons are derpier than the other small fish. They manage to get on Cid's side of the "fence" but then can't find back. Now with the little holes they swim back and forth without problems. I also added the bubble disc. Thanks a lot to Dennis for the tip with the extended soaking! I soaked it for about 10 days (longer than he said lol) and even with the air plugged in, the disc stays on the bottom of the tank. I covered it up with some gravel because I do not like the unnatural look of the disc. It's the Top Fin brand, I guess some of you guys know what it looks like. I potted my big, pretty java fern, replanted some of the smaller javas which will last for about five more hours, because as soon as it gets dark and Mr. Eight-Inch-Pleco makes his rounds, he will successfully uproot everything he can get his suckermouth on. The floating, sad looking sword bundles I just let float anymore. They will literally be uprooted within hours, and the small fish seem to like the floating plant bundle. Anyway, here we go: No flash full tank view. (To the left is the teles tank) My beautiful Cid But because he is a naughty boy who likes to fight, he is in single confinement. He is occasionally visited by the platies, neons and cory cats. Even by the big pleco, although here I have no clue how a 7" pleco manages to go back and forth, unless he jumps over the divider... The other part of the tank. All 12 black neons are still here and healthy. The angelfish do not care for them at all. Closeup of Lucky This here is my big, beautiful java fern. This also is the plant, that the "mystery plant" has snuck in on. The dozen neons, without flash for their natural glow, with flash for details, and a top view I made an indentation in the gravel below the driftwood. I added a photo with flash for comparison. The flash completely washes out the indentation, which is why I post a lot of non flash photos because these show certain details better - although my plants look radioactive Anyway, the cory cats love it! Moon being cute Momo is such a beautiful fish The neons feel surprisingly comfortable near the big angels Angel meetup! My cat had startled the striped angel, so s/he turned solid. I think it is so cool how they do that! Pleco has problems accepting that he outgrew his favorite cave three inches ago Goldie, the marigold platy Mickey (yellow) and Rocket (gray). These two are always up to something. Mickey is the "alpha platy" with Rocket being second in command. I also have never before seen a platy with such an interesting coloring as Rocket. Rocky, the male dwarf gourami, was photo-shy today. Lucky photobombing the picture is awesome though LOL And a video
