I would say zebra ghost at the least. They have a lot of spots on the background and a really high iridesence too which makes them really cool looking. Im not an expert but there are angelfish forums where people could id them for you

Nice tank! Like the scape. If you ever get long finned angels or any other longer finned fish be wary of the head and tail lights mine tend to do a little nipping and I dislike their temperament towards each other (it maybe because I only have five of them). But great looking planted tank, keep it up.

Well I haven't posted in a long time but I am doing a major rescape of the 55 as I was really not liking the scape so I will be posting more pictures of the tank after I have moved the substrate. Not much else has happened.

Rescape

So I am in the process of rescaping the 55 gallon. It really happened because I was unhappy with the scape and I just bought a used 3 Bulb Catalina T5HO fixture so I am in the process of going high tech. I just wanted to show you my new scape and wanted to see what you guys thought about it and if you have any comments or suggestions. I will try and find some large rocks to place around the driftwood and a few to place on the left side. Here are the pictures as promised. Also sorry for the awful camera skills.







Also here are some pics of the 50 gallon as it looks much better than it has in a while.





Thanks for looking

The tank is filled but it only has Needle Leaf Java Fern and Cryptcoryne balanese. Now I just need to get more plants, fish, and a co2 system. Thanks for looking but I would like some comments please.

make sure THIS time around you either PAINT the back or go to Walmart and purchase some posterboard. This tank would have been so much more with $1.50 spent.

No I had and have a black backround and still I was not liking the scape so I decided to change it. So far I am liking this scape a lot more, now I just need to let some plants fill in and get some more plants.

Well I found some rocks from my backyard and a local creek and I am liking the ones I found. The only problem I have is that the rocks on the left side are not positioned in the right place so it does not look to good. I was wondering if anyone had advice on placement of the rocks so that I can have a better overall looking scape. I will try and get some more plants tomorrow. Here are some pics:













Thanks

Honestly, I liked your old scape much, much more. Maybe but more rocks in the left side.
