Demartini,

yeah, I'll post some pictures soon! I also added a yasha goby, but I haven't seen him since I added him... he made a burrow in the back, so at least he's still alive! lol

 

Whoa, very nice rock work! Man women just beat us guys out when it comes to aquascaping any day of the week! How the hell did you get such sweet pieces to make that cool double cave look! Did you have a vision or something! That is soo cool!

 

I just moved the rocks around until I got what I liked. I did try making caves. The cave on top was made with a piece of rock that I broke up, and then superglued together in an arche. I was lucky to get some really nice pieces of rock!

Nice work on that. Doesn't look "formed" at all.

You going to get a shrimp to go with the Yasha? Got fish on my mind.

My yasha hid for about a week before he felt comfortable coming out. He's still pretty shy but comes up sometimes with his pistol buddy.

Demartini,

How is the 8 gallon progressing? I have not had much time to add to the 14 gallon lately.

I agree. Some of my friends say it is not a REAL truck. I say it is pretty cool though. It was between that and a 4 Runner.

I needed a new car because my chevy blazer was on it's way out. I had a 350 Z that my dad got a good deal on... I was driving it while my mom still had her volvo... now that her lease is up she uses the Z and I went and bought my mini.

I love gorgonians. I am pretty sure all gorgonians have polyps that come out. The blueberry gorgonian is gorgeous... it's brown with bright blue polyps.
