That is an unusual set-up! Very creative hardscape, that draws much attention. Looks really nice!

Hi,

just some updates at 4 months, many fauna have been added, but there are still others in waiting tanks.

i am not entirely happy with it but want to let it evolve instead of making drastic changes, nature has a way of softening and making things look good, it i just need to tweak every now and then.

Incredible setup! I love the hardscape, and i swear- if you do anything to that stump on the right side, you'll be sorry..

LOL just kidding. I really think the whole scape is just perfectly brilliant. I wouldn't change a thing!

Thanks for the kind comments guys.

Rainbowfish are certainly up there when they mature. I will try and upload a video soon. Most of the rainbowfish I have are only Juveniles. You cant see it in the photos but there are many growing fry/young around 15-25mm in there.

Nice SanJ. Think the right stump is softening up nicely.

Love the M Aru IIs. I have 8, only one turned out to be a male though.

Dont suppose you know if anyone that is offering some males at the moment?

Im based in the UK, I got my Arus from a guy in the Netherlands when his daughter was travelling to the UK. I know there are people on Rainbowfish.org who sell fish in the USA, but i dont know who has young at the moment.


Here is a short video of the tank: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8RFOMV6dAUg

This is one of the nicest looking tanks I have seen, from the hardscape, to the choice of fish and plants. Very well done. I could sit in front of that tank for hours on end.
