thank you.

just thought it was time for another update shot. other than the micro chain sword up front doesn't seem to be filling in (darn do I ever need a good low ground cover, any low/medium light suggestions?) other than that I am very pleased with this tank

Your tank is gorgeous!

And I used to live on Crystal River- sure you know where that is. One of my favorite places on earth.

Looks like a Cabomba, they are nice when they get their color and they grow fast and are hardy. Just don't let them melt because they make a mess of things when they start melting.

I am digging the sand! Looks great!

Meg, the tank is simply gorgeous!

Your fish store must be top of the line. All I have are PetCo and PetsMart. They have nothing like the fish you have.

I love the Albino Bristlenose. I had a regular Bristlenose and loved him.

You're making me rethink all those hundreds of Angelfish fry I'm raising!

I can't wait to get started on my tank.

Looks awesome!
I think I missed something; the blueish-purple fish with the red noses, what are those? They're shaped like barbs or maybe rasboras...

they are Black Rasboras, good eye! I love them. but I recently lost them all. not sure what happened as everyone else is fine. over two weeks they all just dropped off

Sandy, the albino bristle nose I got from Molly. she sells them

I recently added 3 sparkling goramies, they are very small and different.
thinking of making my green neon school bigger instead of replacing the rasbora

This tank is amazing!

Deep beneath the rolling waves in labyrinths of coral caves

up date a s requested. happy you all like my tank!
Aquatic Prodigy the waters are good, all other fish are doing great. I enlarged the green neon school and moved my betta to this tank, he makes a nice centerpiece fish. the rummy noses keep him in line.
I had a terrible out break of BBA and got it undercontrol with 5 amano shrimp, they are amazing! added 3 cherri shrimp as well. the water is clear the pictures are bad, I try to get better pictures soon.
the tank tonight

gone for a weekend and had a large snail die. the tank had a large fish load and that dead snail pushed it over the edge, I lost much of the fish life.
still standing(swimming) are 3 rummy noses, 2 green neons, the albino bristle nose, 1 male threadfin rainbow, and 5 sparkling georamis.

I think I will keep the Bristle Nose and Sparkling Gs, add more green neon..
rehome the threadin and rummy noses.
add a school of 5 black rasboras or 5 black neons.

any-who, here is the tank today
