Yep, gottcha.


Yeah I never took notice of a price of controller tho

When I first looked at them I wasn't sure how well they worked but the more I look the more better they look haha

Ah, so you know someone who can speak to their efficacy, that's great. I'm sure he enjoys his LED fixtures too? What kind of substrate are you using? I've written extensively on the plant under the Plant section of the forum; use the search for lilaeopsis and you should find a few threads where I discuss the plant in much more detail if you want additional information.

Hahaha. Very cute, Mr. Smartypants, lol. I don't comb it but I do give it a trim off the top now and then!

Background completed!

Well I have finally added the rest of the NLJF to the back of the aquarium (Big thanks to h4n). I also added about 20 Harlequin Rasboras and 7 Oto cats. I think I'm going to buy another 20 Rasboras before its all said and done. at the moment, I'm still trying to figure out a transition plant between my foreground and the stones, but I may just opt for some crypts. Anyone got any ideas, let me know! In the interim, I'm waiting for some peat to arrive from Amazon.com, as I've decided to try to soften my water and lower the pH to be more in line with the conditions that my fish normally prefer in their native environment.

Check out the new FTS:

looking good styxx.
if you want a crypt midground, maybe get some green gecko? i never thought this plant was too impressive, but then i saw it in person and changed my mind. i love the little blush in the leafs center. might look nice in there.

Marko, I'm definitely considering including Cryptocoryne Wendtii Green or some green gecko. Can you send me a picture of yours? I'm a little worried about crypt melt and the time it would take for the plants to recover. But I really am starting to get some crypts in here somewhere. In the mean time I'm going to get some Anubias coffeefolia, anubias nana petitte and another large Seriyu stone to break up the monotony of the midground.
