It was about 120 with tax. Give them a call they may be able to ship one to you. I believe only 2 places in the US are selling these tanks.

Update, of all the additional stem plants that I have placed in the tank, the only one I think I am going to keep is the Cuba. I put them in to keep the algae in check. Also placed a pair of rams and 10 cardinals in the tank yesterday. When I looked at the tank this morning I found out the rams have breed. They placed the eggs directly on the aquasoil.


eggs hard to see on gravel under the ram

the eggs did not survive, I'm having a problem with algae right now. It all started from green water. I'll post pics when the tank starts to turn around.

update
All the plants were added to deal with a case of algae. I ran the gammit frist green water, then BGA, then diatoms. Its finally looking good now. Once the foreground kicks in more I will take out a lot of the stem plants.

I don't think I can disagree with any choice you made with this tank! Plant choice, fish choice, substrate, the tank itself . . . . . looking really good, despite algae problems!

Do you have a photo of the lights?

How about algae crew? shrimp/oto/SAE?

this is the light I am using. If you still want I can post a piture of it later on tonight. I have an agae clean up crew. I have several cherry shrimp in there, my rams have finally given up interest in them. For 2 weeks of so they were hunting them down. Now they are leaving them alone. I also have several ottos in there, along with 4 pitbull plecos. Thanks for the complements.

Did a rescape, eventually all the stem plants in the background on the right will come out.

Looks nice. If you don't mind me asking, what are the plants in the foreground on the left?

Looks great! Is that Eriocaulon cinerium just left of the rotalla mini sp? I want to try a Eriocaulon plant sometime soon. Looks like there are four of them?... I got some minis from Craig a while back too. Its such an interesting small plant.

I love the rockscape and the L.cuba looks fantastic. Its the first time I've seen your thread planted. For some reason I always like a tank that is planted heavier on the left than one planted heavier on the right side. Very nice.

Jason the plant on the left is Downoi. Betowess the plant is an eriocaulon. Some of them Guang Zhuo and some cinerium, they do look the same though. Thanks for the complements.
