I loved your story of photo's. :wub:  (A love story in the making. hehehe)

Congratulations Mel. I'm excited for you.

 

I was hoping to see a full shot of your tank though in your video.  It looks awesome from the small portion of your tank that you showed.

Your tank is beautiful. I remember seeing your thread when you first purchased that huge piece of branch but don't recall seeing it in your tank all set up. Thanks for showing me.

I might steal your idea of how you have a curtain to hide your supplies. It looks so tidy and neat. In my daughters armoire years ago when she was a toddler I had rigged up an extra pole to accommodate all her clothes. I never thought of doing something like this under a fish stand. Yours looks awesome.

Added: This was a do-it-yourself project, right?

Yes!! And it was so simple! I measured the area I wanted covered and went to Walmart and got a fabric. I got more than I needed just in case :) while I was there I grabbed these little things:

No idea what they are called :peeka and I also got these simple hooks:

And a pretty spring loaded pole to hang it on:

When I first got the stand there was a shelf here but I had to use the space for my FX5 so now it's extra storage:

I love it Mel.  Thanks for the curtain photo's.  How did you get those silver ring things into the fabric?  You didn't use a sewing machine did you?  Did you have to cut a hole in your fabric or did you have to push those ring things through and they did that completed look?  I'm sure if I went to Michaels or JoAnns they would be able to help me/answer also.  It really does look great.  I have a big squishy black round laundry basket that holds a lot of my fish stuff that is under my stand.

I just cut a little slit in the fabric and punched it through. Then I think the top part either hammers down or there was a little tool. I don't remember aha

Oh I will do tons if they hatch heh

Oops I totally forgot! The parents are most likely Baby and Basil (first two in my siggy) although my little orange ranchu, Ginger,  was doing a little chasing too. :clapping:

No changes today. I don't see any fuzzy eggs yet but I'm keeping my eye out.

 

I got four liter bottles and I had my LPS order some ridged air tubing so I can make a BBS hatchery when the time comes :) I also got a little heater put in there. So now the tub is set up with about 2" of water, a that has the water at about 74*, a thermometer, and a anubia on a rock that is covered in algae.

 

 

Exciting, Mel.  I see little eyes

 

You think so?? I was trying to figure out if it was eyes or just algae that is stuck to the outside :teehee
