Not to burst your bubble, but they won't stay blue forever. It's temporary. It's a white phal with yellow on it, they just put dye in its water to dye the buds blue. It may not last, though will be interesting to see. Nevertheless, it's one of the nice store-bought phals I've seen, and the current blue is an added bonus. You have one great hubby! :)

HAHA so I should get some Blue food coloring and add it to the water right? Would keep them blue?
HD had some that looked slightly different but they were $60 for them. And they were true blues from what I read on their tag.

Oh well I have green, yellow and red and purple. I like them all. ;)

Follow these instructions:

Plant orchid in Miracle Grow Moisture control potting soil. Water once a week. Keep in BRIGHT indirect light, mine love being under the mango tree, they get direct morning light and then indirect all day.

Makes them grow HUGE!

Here is my Dump.

Thanks 2 years married today! 7 years together as of January. Seems like it's flying by.

I have to get my hands on another NEW 40B so I can use that as the display and the one I have as the SUMP. I may have to cave and just buy one so I don't put this off any longer......

Just love all the pics!!! The vid you took is beautiful and it really shows how dynamic your rock scaping is, which you can never see in a FTS.

And........Happy anniversary!

I can't believe that my wife and I will be celebrating our 27th this Friday, and we were together about 5 years before that! My how fast the time goes by.

I'll bet you'll be happier with the 40b as the display tank. I think it will seem like more room.

Thanks!
And I know! We have been together 7 years married 2 so it's really not been long, but I can't remember a time without him!

Thanks I hope so I was checking out some sick clams at the LFS when I was getting my water for the 2 day late WC. :lol: I was drooling into their tanks, had to go. ;)

Yeah it does! ;)

Thanks I hope my dumps are not smelly or anything just pretty pics! ;)

Yeah we are going to find me another 40B and just move everything into the new tank. I am a bit worried about the seals on the 46 as it is a older tank and was used before I got it. I have also noticed a few places where I do not trust the glass either along the seams so I think it is just better for me and the tank if we change it.

I can't wait to have the extra sandbed in the 40B!



Pics after the WC is done. About 2-3 hours guys. ;)

Just called around,
me: I wanted to see if the $1 per gallon sale was going on still
CS rep: no not since Christmas
me: well do you know when it will be going on again?
CS rep: no
me: Okay can you tell me how much a 40B tank costs?
CS rep: $109

Guess I can just pay the extra and grab one. Not bad IMO for that. Next week I grab the tank and glass for baffles and this week we will probably be finishing the stand!

I was thinking of staining the actual stand and leaving the frosted glass door white..... what you guys think? If I want to stain them I have to strip them down, sand them prep them then stain them and hope they match. I could do a white molding around the base to help make it mesh.......

Thoughts?

I think I have one of every color now! I am so excited for them all to bloom!

I have a Green one, Purple, Purple and White, White, Purple and Yellow, and more I can't remember......

Pics happen as they bloom! ;)

Sweet! I only have one phalaenopsis that has rebloomed once and just bought a cymbidium.

HAHA so I should get some Blue food coloring and add it to the water right? Would keep them blue?

$60!? True blue? I don't know about that... I'd be interested to see if the blue food coloring actually worked.

Nice photos B) Everything looks great.

Maybe you should wait till you get the new tank on the stand before you decide if you want to stain, paint etc???

No this weekend.

I know I want to paint and stain it as it is going to be bigger then the tank and I want to have it protected from splashing. I figure a light stain with the white trim and doors will look nice. Pics later. Gotta run and see what my sister wants.

Be back in a few hours guys.
