    Great looking Jungle. No LFS nearby that would give you credit?

    They are growing pretty quick and there over 30 of them in there. It's gonna be interesting getting them all out. Same with the little ten gallon. The Platy babies are about 1/8" long now and both the females are preggers again.

    Never even thought of LFS credit with plants. Thanks! Worth a shot.

    Id have some of those cuttings if I where closer Reef Monkey

    looking very good in there, Im surprised you can see the tiny fish in that jungle you have going on
    I reckon survival rates must be high with all that cover they have?

    ROFL @ your signature!

    Thanks for the compliment and if it were possible I'd gladly give you all you wanted.

    The little guppies are growing pretty quick and the survival with the mess of plants is very high. I'd guess over 85%.

    I didn't realize that some guppies are aggressive. The Blue Laser male killed all of the other guppies in the tank off. One by one he'd nip fins and flesh until the victim fish was a goner. Male or female, it didn't matter until only one female remained.

    The Tiger Lily sent it's second flower bud to the surface (the first one died about 1/3 of the way to the surface) and managed to bloom. I've taken the cover off of the tank to get the pics. Just thought I'd share this gorgeous flower. :)
