Thanks
My Grandma painted the painting in the back and several others.
I'll take other shots like these now that I know that people like them.
The only downside is I use my uncles camera which I like get to borrow every 2 months

Btw what kind of fish is that?

Is the tank an acrylic seaclear tank? I have a 50(ish) gallon tank and I like it a lot. Where did you get yours? I haven't seen one quite as big.

Yea its an acylic seaclear tank. Has both ups and down :P
I got this one used with the tank and stand for 200$ off craiglist.
Its a baby BN pleco.
They've tripled in overall body size in 2 weeks!
Haven't really seen the amount of algae these fish can eat but I hope I can witness it really soon!

You have a very nice tank that has progressed very nicely. Where did you get the S. repens I've been searching for that plant and can't seem to find it, my fish pull out my dwarf hairgrass as it puts out runners and I it is not making any progress.

You can get them from Tom Barr, he sells them pretty cheap. I got mine from ValorG

Your house is very pretty. I always like seeing the surrounding areas where the tanks are residing. Very nice painting, I think you should ask your Grandma to paint one for me now. What kind of camera does your uncle have? It takes great pictures.

haha, my grandma doesn't do these paintings anymore but we have lots more around the house. About 20! lol I can take a few pics of them if you'd like

Not really sure what type he used but its one of those big canon ones
I'll have to ask him sometime soon. I remember that its 72mm or something like that.

You should totally take more pictures of the paintings. And tell her she is very talented. I'm in love. <3

I think if you told me, I'd not know anyway. Anything more than a simple point and shoot is beyond me.

Haha, yea I just took some random shots from different locations to see what it would look like if it was from different angles.
Well I just completely redid parts of the left side. And it looks quite empty right now. I'm thinking of using Ludwigia Brevipes/Lacustris etc. for the different empty spots right now. Also pulled out the Rotala Roundifolia on the right side. Have about 40+ more than I expected....

I'm looking to add L. Lacustris on the right side.
Definitely some Pogostemon Stellatus of both varieties.
You'll only get the bad pics with the recorder that I normally use to take pics since I returned the camera to my uncle
