    Well after 30 minutes with my Python, all gone, a few strays but will get them today.

    That was a bear, fasting growing plant I have ever seen.:eek:

    Think came in on the moss with the Red Cherry Shrimp.:culpability:

    Also moved my returns higher up, so a better flow to the top, much better now, I guess learned a few things off of that I did.
