Looking good! Love the row of darker plants along the front contrasting with the light greens.
My tropical is so overgrown at the moment it's not funny but life has been very busy over the past few months with quakes, heart attacks (dad's, not mine) selling parents' house and shifting them into a retirement village unit etc etc etc.

I hope your dad is feeling better Caryl. Glad to see you are still around. Most seem to have moved onto other things now.
Looking forward to the new tank in a couple of months, then my current marine will become my tropical and the new bigger tank my marine. The tropical in the pic will be a coral rearing tank.

I think yours is the first post here for many months. It is dead as a dodo.
I check in every now and then on the off chance someone posted but otherwise don't bother.
Fish keeping has been pretty much on the back burner for me since I got off our FNZAS executive and resigned as editor.
I have the one 4ft tropical plus large pond, both self sustaining. Lost interest. :roll:
4ft is mostly Odessa barbs and Ancistrus and plants are C affinis, Anubius nana, dwarf sag, a bit of Java fern & moss plus red rotala.
Dad is fine now thanks but has Alzheimers so the house move has been a bit confusing for him. Heart attack was mild and just a couple of nights in ICU. Mum had her pre-med today before cataract surgery so it is all go here! :lol:
At least they are now only a couple of kms from me and between me and the CBD so easier to pick them up (neither drives and dad is no longer safe on his mobility scooter), take them into town, and get them home again. They used to live on the other side of town, which involved back tracking and about a 16km round trip so our fuel bill will drop dramatically. :?
I bet your kids have grown. I now have 2 grandsons so feeling older :D

Good news about only a mild heart attack. We lost a family friends a couple of years ago to Alzheimers. Congratulations on the grand children. I have 5 granddaughters and 1 grandson. All our children have left home except for Steven, who we found out this year has high functioning autism, and is hyperlexic. So spends all his time in his room and doesn't go anywhere except school and fishing with me. Like you I do occasionally pop on here to see what's happening but it is very dead compared to the time I started using it as a novice.
