The tank is doing good, I added a bunch more cichlids to the tank, I also added an albino bristlenose pleco to the mix.
I had to raise my light up though because I am starting to get algae on the leaves. I also blew a ballast a couple days ago, I think some dog hair or something got in and caused a short circuit. I was in the other room and I started to hear a loud crackle, I ran into the dining room and saw the puff of blue smoke coming out of the ballast. I was pretty pissed to say the least... but in the end it will probably be fine, 2 T5HO bulbs over this tank should be more than enough light. It will just take some getting used to the dimmer lighting. I will probably end up stringing a few 3W LED's together though to add a bit more pop (I am thinking some 10000K's and some Royal Blues).
I finally got a lens for my camera so I have been taking tons of photos of the tank and the pics...please indulge me
FTS with slow shutter speed...I call it the ghost shot
An overprocessed FTS
Semi FTS shots
This is the blarney stone, I call it that because the orange guy is always nibbling on it.
This guy was nibbling at the algae on the glass
Thanks for looking at all the pics haha. I am liking this camera (Nikon D3100 with a stock 18-55 Nikkor Lens) but I am already wanting a higher end lens. I just can't get the pics of the fish crisp enough.
