Still debating on if I want to do dwarf hair grass in the foreground or just stick with the dwarf sag. Any opinions?

Personally, I think the hair grass would look great.

Dude sorry about the arm!! That looked gnarly, hope you feel better.

So move all of the Dwarf Sag to one end and place some DHG on the opposite?

Thanks. It's getting better. It'll be another 3 months before I can start doing any lifting.

I think it would look nice with just the DHG because it would look mor natural with the other plants you have

That's what I was thinking but have never had it so I didn't want to rip everything out and then end up not liking the DHG when it grows in and have to start over with Dwarf Sag.

Got another question, looking for any and all input on this. I am selling my 55 gallon setup and have this crazy looking piece of driftwood in there. Should I move this to my 90 gallon or should I just get rid of it when I get rid of my 55?



Again, I'm looking for any and all input on this! Thanks all!

What rate/how many gallons per hour are going through your UV Sterilizer many people get the wrong UV Sterilizer for the tanks. Then find that they don't work.

Check out this site http://www.aquariumplants.com/Empero...p/emp02240.htm

Do lots of reading.

That sucks you lost your rainbows love those little guys.

Good luck with the arm.

I am running about 120 gal/hr through my UV Sterilizer. Before I went on vacation in February I noticed that four of my fish had some white spots again and I turned the sterilizer on while I was gone. When I got back about 10 days later all fish were cured. Not a single spot on any of them so I'm happy with my purchase!

Thinking about re-doing the tank. I'm going to start looking around for some better driftwood/rocks for the tank. Any suggestions on how I should layout the tank? Just looking for ideas as I'm still a newb. I've been doing a lot of looking at other tanks for ideas just don't' know how to execute.

So I was at my LFS getting driftwood for my other tank and came across this piece of driftwood for my 90 gallon:



They have it mounted up and it's a stump. Don't know if I like it up like this or not but when I laid it flat, I thought it was cool looking:



Now I would need to do a little trimming on it to get it to fit in my 90 gallon but what do you think? Is it too short on the stump end? It's roughly a little over 3 feet long. Too overpowering? Or am I better off with something else?

So my wife and I got a DSLR and I started taking a few pictures of my fish. Love this thing so far!

Well the plants were over taking the tank pretty bad where the angels didn't have a whole lot of room. I decided to trim everything up and replant the tank. It's painful to look at an empty tank but I know in a few months it'll be grown back in and hopefully the fish will have a better area to move in. Here's a quick shot of what it looks like now.
