Very pretty. It could use a trim of the stems in the back, and I like what the HM is doing.

What is that plant in the left corner?

In college....so no aquariums for a while.....

Awesome tank dude, this is tempting me to clean out my old 10gal and start a tank this. The walichii looks amazing, the red is so strong. I'm lovin it

Very nice tank. Your Rotala wallichii is so healthy, i'm jealous. I really like the way the Rotala sp. green is growing low like that.

The biggest improvement might be in the photography . . .

jk, you've developed REALLY good foreground and midgrounds. That's something very few people have. Now just comes the task (really, a pretty fun task) of establishing a solid background. Actually, I'd consider some more stronger plants.

AquaClear 50. I absolutely love it, and no it is not too much flow at all for the 10 gallon..

Nice looking tank!
Great colors. My L.Arommatica never gets that red and I've never seen a healthier looking R.Wallichi.
Congrats.

Thanks a lot for the comments guys, really appreciate it.

Here are some more pictures. I love using my digital camera, even though I definitely need to get a DSLR with a great lens. Until then I am going to have to make due with the old Nikon that I have. I made a frame and signature to make my amateurism look less amateur.

I took some more pics today. Tinkered with the frame and decided to add the names as well. I love taking pictures of my tanks, plants, and inhabitants. I will get a much better camera some day, these pictures arent really good quality.

Your tank looks fabulous! Do you mind if i ask about your lighting? Specifically, what type of screw-in bulbs are you using, and what type of fixture do you have them in? I'm thinking about going to screw-in CFs on my 10 gallon, but I wasn't sure if i should get a full incandescent hood, or if needed to build my own fixture. I'm worried about melting the hood, as well as humidity and moisture getting on the bulbs. Thanks!

I am using the incandescent hood that came with the tank, the outside of the tank looks like crap, that is why it is in my room, not on display. It is sitting on an ugly end table with tubes coming out of it. That is why I only like to show the inside

Go to Walmart and look in the light bulb section. There will be a ton of Compact Fluorescent bulbs there. Get the GE 6500K CF Screw-In 20W (it may be less watts I dont remember, too lazy to look under the hood ). I bought the 2 pack which was like $8.

The hood will not melt, dont worry about it. I did however put aluminum foil around the inside of the hood as a sort of ghetto reflector. I think it may also help with the heat because evaporation is very minimal. I have been using screw-in CF on this tank for a long time now, dont worry about moisture or humidity at all.
