    This had me balling!!! True that. Bittersweet.

    But I'm glad to share there is still progress to be made and a tad bit more upgrades and "dialing in" in my foreseeable future... TBC!

    Zoom in action day.
    Hardly see these guys but this particular colorful character was out n about without a care in the world (or tank).

    Wait for it...

    Almost there...

    There he is!


    And later he almost became a tasty shrimp snack.

    Lots has happened since my last update on this tank,.
    First my two beautiful apistos went MIA. I'm assuming they are in fish heaven. Only one female is still wondering the waters. May they RIP.
    Second, my tiger lotus is taking over. I haven't kept the growth in check which is ok cuzz most of my plants in here don't require much lighting. It did surprise me with two beautiful blooming flowers that made their way through the crack towards the back of the tank. Really awesome seeing this.
    Lastly, I recently been battling BBA. I think I figured out why today. I believe it has to do with not cleaning my inlet/outlet hoses from the filters. I accidentally plugged in the connectors the wrong way and out came so much bulked up grime and clumps of black algae like material. I totally forgot to do my routine maintenance on these since I started this tank. I'm hoping that will do it and get this lovely beast back In order. I was also playing around with the lights and lifted them higher and it looks so much better now, at least the lighting.
    Oh and one more thing, the nice white sand is no more, lol. My fish and plecos keep shifting the soil and keeps getting mixed in with the sand. I will soon do a major maintenance and clean out the area. Stay tuned...

    Anyways here are the latest pics for any interested in checking out my tank.

    Quite happy after some good needed maintenance. BBA is under control. I'm in the process of designing my own automatic water changing process. That will be awesome once that is done as I will spend more time enjoy the relaxing views.

    I got a glimpse of one of my pretty little plecos that I had not seen in a loooong time. I thought they were both dead but surprisingly they are still hanging out just doing their nocturnal thang I guess. Please don't ask what kind pleco cuzz I don't know. I'm so lazy to remember names of some of my critters and plants. Please excuse my laziness.
