    Did my first deep clean of the 40-Breeder yesterday, and was surprised to find that most of the little buggers were alive & well! Lost a few Es...one of them was a favorite, Izzy. :cry: The other 3 were victims of PPS, so I never got to know them.

    Well, here it is, all spiffy & new!

    I don't know who to comment on first!!! :giverose:

    Your tank looks beautiful as always. I really like the tree trunk you have in the middle there.

    ALL your babies look INCREDIBLE and happy!

    Sorry about the guys that didn't make it.
     
  4. As always everything looks absolutely wonderful! Your kids look great!

    So sorry about Izzy and your others. I know you always take it hard when you lose one, especially a fave.

    ((((((((((hugs)))))))))
