The plants arrived!!!! Two orders arrived in the same day actually. So of course I was a little busy when I got home
I also bought 2 dome shop lights with cfl bulbs to hang over the tank and black contact paper to act as a background (will have to redo it when I'm in a more patient mood). Everything is FINALLY planted/tied to rocks. Time for pictures....
Two of the "Three Amigos" hanging out by the dwarf hair grass and Isoetes sp. These guys are so fun, and easiest to photograph when Tiko gets out of the way.
This.... Is Tiko, one of my most curious fish. He loves to watch everything I do and a total camera whore.
Zeke doesn't like the camera as much, looks like he was about to bite me.
One of my tiger barbs playing in the bubbles, kept nipping at my arm as I was planting the Bacopa monnieri
My other parrot, Java, doing a little jig for the camera, of course Tiko trying to get in on the picture.
Java photo bombing Tiko's side shot.. I SEE YOUUUU
My pearl and opaline gourami's playing in the duckweed.
What the tank looks like.. NO MORE PLASTIC!
Next up for the tank will be installing the canister filter once it arrives, hanging the dome lights with conduit, adding driftwood and maybe more rocks.
