They are pretty cool, they mainly stay at the top of the tank. Not overly active but still move around. After having them I miss my rainbows, they were a lot more active. I bought my lampeyes online and they traveled well.

Had to bribe the fish today with baby brine but got some solid pictures. Went for a more dramatic approach this time.

Removed the marsilea minuta on the right and moved more blyxa into the area. Replaced my moonlights for two orange/red CREE leds.

Weather is starting to warm up and I want to remodel the tank. Get rid of some plants and bring in more. Not exactly sure what I want to do with the tank.

You obviously can grow plants lol. Just gotta go in a little bit more orderly fashion what about cutting te right side back toward te right wall. Let the left side grow in a little more and make a sandy pathway that does a zigzag trough the middle. I think with your current jungle that would be pretty sweet!

Lol Thanks! Well the right side is stuffed from front to back. Trimming isn't much of an option. I need to remove those monster ferns in order to clear room.

Honestly I have no clue what I want to do,what I want to add or get rid of. I'm open to all kinds of suggestions.

I woke up Friday to a leaky tank. I spent all day Saturday swapping and rescaping the tank. I added a few more seiryu stones and removed a lot of plants. Time to rebuild the jungle!

The plants are Limnophila aromatica. I'm currently using paintball tanks for my co2 system and the LEDs are a custom build.

Total LEDS: 24 + 2 orange/red

12 cool white
6 warm white
6 neutral white
