Hi gang,

I finally got around to-in-least attempting to get photos. The 3/4" glass
on that tank just makes it a chore. So today, I tried to make a couple
movies... You'll need Quicktime to view them, unfortunately, because I
didn't have time to find a program to convert to AVI (any suggestions gladly
taken!). We'll see how this works out, and if it does, then I'll use the
movies to get better conceptual shots.

You'll probably also want to right click on the movie links and do "Save

In the photos, you'll be able to see how I've used deep mud and sand as a
substrate. The mud will appear gray, the sand, whitish brown. DSCN0334.jpg
is a good example.

This is a 100 gallon aquarium (72x18x18) illuminated by two 175 watt 5500k
metal halides.

I also did a significant harvest last night. I will have the plants-in-the
outing on Saturday for distribution. Most all of it is vallisneria, but
I'll bring frogbit, bladderwort, duckweed, rotala and hornwort as well.

I was asked this the other night, so I'm going to answer it right now...
