  1. The TV series Fringe is pretty fun! I binged that one a few summers ago. Kinda reminds me of a more humor-driven X-Files. I tried to read Dune earlier this year and got too tangled up in the characters and gave it up...I'll be interested to watch the reboot movie!
  2. Hooray for North Carolinians!!! Welcome to the forum! 🥳🥳🥳
  3. Let's see...I started a cart the other day...sponge filter, pre-filter sponges, plants, test strips, dechlorinator, and...plants!
  4. ....this one has me converted! That water lettuce is 🔥! 😂👍 Are there any cool ponds in public places where you live?? Location: Dilworth Tasting Room in Charlotte, NC
  5. Ahhh - the dreaded driftwood biofilm! Completely normal and harmless. Totally gross looking, feeling, and smelling! 😂 The only thing I have to add is that my nerite snails tackled my DBF issue much faster than my shrimp did...if you can handle the possibility of their white, dotty, superglue-like eggs popping up in your tank, they will become your tank MVP's (in my opinion and experience)! 😜👍
  6. Very excited to follow along with your journey!!! 🥳 Cute pupper and awesome tanks and stands! Who is the fan of more water changes? I'm very jealous that your partner is interested in fishkeeping, too...mine will admit that my tank is cool, but is not keen on my hobby-related purchases! 😂
  7. Thank you for this!!! I will have to check these out - our back yard is pretty wild right now, and so we've been chipping away trying to make it a little more organized (read: less weedy) and to attract more fun wildlife...this thread is perfect for inspiration!! Thank you for sharing your wonderful outdoor spaces!
  8. So very jealous of this - I've got one consistent hummer that visits my little rail box with the scarlet sage and the baby bells (Calibrachoa). I'd love to have a flock, but I think that means I'll have to make my yard foliage a little more tempting! 😂👍
  9. Pete says thank you for the compliment! (And, thank you for putting all of that together!! Those photo competitions were really great! You two did an excellent job with the organization of those contests!! 😆👍) Hugo sounds like he has quite the personality (and, he is pretty, too!!)! Hugo posts are some of my favorites. The bettas really do make the rules, don't they?? Pete likes to monitor his minions from the MagFloat! 😂
  10. This tank seems to be doing well! Pete was perturbed that he didn't win prettiest Betta, and then he got distracted by the corydoras noshing on the Shrimpee sticks ("Whatr you guyz doin??"). 😜👍 I started using Easy Carbon to help fight some algae in the tank a few weeks ago...things were going along swimmingly until I decided to get fancy and dose twice in one week (I'm dosing wayyyy under the recommended), and the crypts did not like. I got a pretty good deal of crypt melt...but I'm enjoying the effect. The area to the right of the tank feels much like a "crypt forest" right now because I vacuumed out all the melted lower level leaves (the melt could also be occurring because the upper level leaves are blocking light from the lower level...didn't think about that until just now). In any case, Pete and the cory cats love weaving through the "trunks" of the taller leaves. One sprig of the scarlet temple survived...I'm about ready to trim and plant. I got wild (well...wild, for me) and trimmed and planted the bacopa with some success. Maybe stem plants don't completely hate me after all! 😂 Here's a minute in my tank after feeding the Shrimpee Sticks, for funsies:
  11. @NanoNano - I am convinced that you buy from Amazon at your own risk...so many sellers, so many items! (But also...so convenient!)
  12. This looks like such a dream build! 😍 I've always wanted to try the tiger lotus...it's actually in my cart as we speak! Excited to follow along with ya! 🥳
  13. Hi Tim!! Welcome to the forum! 🥳🥳🥳
  14. Love the plants and Muay and the awesome "Don't tap on the glass" sign! 😍 I wish I had more fun decor in my tank...I'm pretty much just plants and driftwood. Welcome to the forum, Blake!! 🥳
  15. Speckles is adorable!! 😍 Welcome to the Forum, Chloe!!! 🥳
