I finally got around to editing and uploading my first "official" youtube video -- one in which I do actual voice-over. 

 

@StephenP2003 That is an awesome video. Very well produced. I just subscribed to your YouTube channel! And, nice aquarium too, it was quite the evolution from the first version of the tank to the current version. I was surprised to hear just a little bit of a southern accent (not that there is anything wrong with that). Seeing the video of your aquarium makes me want to do an attractive planted aquarium.

As opposed to a lot of a southern accent? Some people are surprised to know I was born and raised in Louisiana, but I can start sounding pretty backwoods when I'm around my extended family long enough.

I lived up in the hills of western North Carolina for a while in the late 1980s and my accent has never recovered from that.🙂 I also lived in Louisiana during the middle 1960s in a trailer park between Mandeville and Slidell across Lake Pontchartrain from New Orleans. My next door Gervy Soneji taught me how to count to 10 in French (actually Cajun) and properly clean a fish so as not to waste a scrap of meat.

I dragged my wife into the fishroom and showed her your video and her response was "why don't you do a tank like that?"

Great video! Your plants are looking so nice with that CO2. And now I want to replace my dwarf lily with a tiger lotus--so much more red. I also love the pearl scale on your angelfish. Hope they continue to get along. I have a pair in my 40 breeder display tank who just bred for the first time--it was the left-hand 20 gal for them, and the right-hand 20 gal for everyone else (cardinal tetras, lemon tetras, albino corys, panda garra). Of course, the eggs were quickly eaten. I might try saving some next time. That idea of taking out most of the hinge on your lid is smart--mine is right in the way of the light.

Awesome video, truly laugh out loud funny. Subscribed and liked. All my fish have always been furniture movers. Never done a planted but it doesn't matter. "Hey, Bro! I'm gonna take this thing your just bought and placed and move it over here and leave it upside down! That cool?" Years ago, I had a 55 with two Oscars and it ended up being them, one big rock, and one big piece of wood. They demolished everything. Even plastic plants. They would dig them up and drag them around and shake them until they fell apart. Absolute wrecking crew. But that is what Oscars do. No regrets.
