The moves went without a hitch. The only sulfide I caught a whiff of was in
some dead (I'm assuming) Apongeton bulbs. The sand was cleeeeeeeean. And
to think that it only takes like 5 ppm of H2S (?) to catch the attention of
the human sniffer... I'd say this is a real winner.
Gotta do a little aquascaping now and then the photo shoot begins. Have
some "super-male" Spotfin and Redfin Shiners that look schweeeeet to get
shots of. With the GE Daylight Ultra bulbs, I can't believe the coloration
in the Spotfin. They're kinda in the way usually around here. However, now
they're silver and blue and gray and black and rinse and repeat :)
Okay. Back to the cave. It's too hot up here. I dunno how you Southern
folks deal with this heat (It's only 88 out ;). Ah longing for fall
