Really? Cool! Do you have any planted tanks?
Not anymore :) My 90 was a high tech planted tank for over 10 years and I had a lot of fun. However, I converted it to a vivarium a couple of years ago and have not regretted the decision! No more water changes, no more emergency culling due to overshadowed plants, no more ferts, and no more algae :) It was fun while I still had it, though. I used to grow huge patties of Riccia so that I could use it in my frog tanks. Turns out, though, that having my frog tanks wet enough to grow stuff like Riccia and mosses is not all that great for the frogs, so I don't have many planted tank plants in my tanks anymore. I am happy with all frog vivs now :)

Currently, I keep cardinal tetras, marble and silver hatchets, and sterbai corys. My group of about fifteen sterbai are 12 years now, so they're getting long in the tooth, but when I need to I'll replace them with more sterbai. :)

I love Cardinal Tetras. Truly i do. And corys too!!.

I have thought DB should encorperate husbandry 'sciences' beyond limited parochial ideologies, to include multidisciplinary formats. As overspecialization leads to a disarray of cohesion, knowledge and appied understanding.

Some things are transferable, some other things - Not.

An acuity, not an ideology, makes for a talented keeper. With or without available "citations" or "articles,"

We know what weve done.
