Very pretty! Sure wish the colors were more true. Not bad for a cell phone though...

Looks pretty sweet!

Nice job getting a carpet going in a 90gal.

I think the pics look pretty nice for a cell phone especially! Need a FTS though.

I have to agree with everyone, the tank looks great, and those are actually pretty great quality for cell phone pics! Agree with Laura though, would love to see a FTS!

The tank is beautiful!

What are the dimensions on your tank? It's certainly not a standard 90gal.

Thanks again!

36X24X24 essentially 1/2 of a 180. Perfect size for me but not the camera

Thanks!

I don't like driftwood. Never have. I try and do without it if at all possible. I know that's a veritable sin on here. But I likes what I likes! And I don't likes driftwood.

The rocks are Obsidian that I collected myself at Mono Lake, CA. There is a whole mountain ( a WHOLE mountain - well actually the leftover core of a volcano) of it there just east of the lake. Ever see an Obsidian wall 50 feet high?!? Now that is cool! Everytime I head up the 395 I grab a trunk load. I use it in all my tanks.

I like to keep things simple.... Over the years I've learned to trim and replant in the proper fashion in an effort to bring out the best of each plant. I routinley toss pounds of plants every week from this tank. It's a shame but somebody's gotta do it. All my other tanks are full up so I just toss the clippings. I'd like to offer stuff on the site here but I don't have anything that is special. Just easy to grow plants that anybody should be able to grow (profusely). And beside I don't want to recreate what I have in this tank.... so each of my tanks I try and keep different as much as possible.

Right now I'm trying to speed up the L. Glandulosa as much as possible. It fell behind when I ran out of KNO3. But it's rebounding fine. It should be back to it's old glory in about 3 weeks.

Foreground plants are a freakin' pain! I went from Glosso to HC to Glosso to just letting the Blyxa grow for a while then back to Glosso. I got the Glosso tweaked in now and can grow it at will. I think I'll stay with that for a while.

very nice, thanks for the FTS (sorry sometimes I forget I used to have no idea what the meant either :-P) I love the colors, and I think it's awesome that you can get that gorgeous obsidian! A very cool look, very unique, i like the way you used it in the scape too, very nice.

On your plant clippings though, don't think no one will want your fast and easy to grow plants because you think they're not special. I'm sure they'd sell fast in the swap 'n' shop, especially if they're something you're going to toss anyway, if you only charge the cost to ship, they'll be gone in no time. A lot of people setting up their first tanks or are just getting a new tank started would probably snatch up packages of fast, easy growing plant clippings! Just a thought

Anyway, gorgeous tank!
